Singer-filmmaker Zubeen Garg and the Brahmin Samaj have decided to bury the hatchet over the former’s recent rant against the Brahmin community after Zubeen sought a written apology.
Zubeen Garg met representatives of the Brahman Samaj in Golaghat and tendered a written apology stating that he was sorry if statements made earlier had hurt sentiments of the Brahmin community.
“Zubeen Garg met us and apologized for his earlier conduct. We have forgiven him and have also asked our sub-units to withdraw police cases filed against him,” Assam Brahman Samaj president Sunil Goswami told News Live.
Zubeen Garg had earlier stirred a massive row after he reportedly made disparaging remarks against the Brahmin community and even stated that Brahmins should be killed.
The rant, made during an event in Guwahati, stirred a row with several police cases lodged against him at various police stations across the State.
Amid the statewide furore, Zubeen Garg claimed his comment was taken out of context and that he had only meant that the society should be a classless one and everyone should be equal.
