New Delhi: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Member of Parliament Vinay Katiyar has stoked another controversy by saying that Muslims should not be allowed to live in India.
According to news agency ANI, Katiyar said that when the Muslims divided the country on the basis of their population, there is no need for them to live in India.
“Musalman iss desh mein rehna hi nahi chahiye, unhone jansankhya ke aadhaar par desh ka batwara kardia toh iss desh mein rehne ki kya avashyakta thi? (Muslims should not be living in this country at all. When they divided the country on the basis of population, what is the need for them to stay back in India?)” said the BJP leader.
He further said, “Unko alag bhu-bhaag de dia gaya, Bangladesh ya Pakistan jaayen yahan kya kaam hai unka? (They were given different regions. They should go either to Bangladesh or Pakistan, why are they needed here?).
The controversial remarks of the BJP MP comes a day after All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) leader, Asaduddin Owaisi said on Tuesday that anyone calling Indian Muslims Pakistani should be jailed. (ANI)
