Thou shalt smite? Karnataka CM Kumaraswamy calls himself God, says BJP will face ‘judgement day’

Kumaraswamy credited God for his fortune, saying the post of CM is a gift of God to him.

Facing imminent defeat in the trust vote that the Congress-JD(S) government is delaying in Karnataka, chief minister HD Kumaraswamy invoked the Bible and compared himself with God. During the debate on the trust vote in the assembly, on Friday the CM warned the BJP of apocalypse for trying to topple his government. He said that his government was formed by God and God will punish BJP if they try to bring it down.

Driving home the allegation that BJP was poaching his MLAs, Kumaraswamy invoked Bible and said, “The only consolation is that there is coming a day when everyone will give an account of their lives as they stand before Almighty God on Judgment Day — with no lawyer, no lies, no façade — just them and true record of their life.”

Reiterating that he became CM due to circumstances, Kumaraswamy credited God for his fortune, saying the post of CM is a gift of God to him. He added that only God can take it way whenever he wants. “I am just a pawn in the game of fate”, he added.

The Judgement Day is a concept found in Abrahamic religions, which says it is the final and eternal judgment by God of every person or society. On this day, Jesus, the Son of God will judge “the living and the dead” before destroying the old heaven and earth, which are corrupted of sin, according to the Bible.

Responding to allegations that his brother and PWD minister HD Revanna was doing black magic to save the government, the CM said that his brother does not start his day without visiting the gods. “Don’t BJP MLAs go to temples where the priests give you the same prasada? I have no qualms in stating that my family and I are God-fearing,” he said.
