Muslims shouldn’t live in India as they are responsible for partition: BJP MP
SRINAGAR: BJP Parliamentarian Vinay Katiyar on Wednesday said Muslims should not be living in India and instead go to Pakistan or Bangladesh, even as he held the largest minority responsible for partition in 1947, said a media report.
“Muslims shouldn’t even be living in this country, they’re the ones who partitioned this country based on their population, so why do they need to live here? They were given separate territory, they should go to Pakistan or Bangladesh, what business do they have here,” the report in the Times of India mentioned Katiyar as having said.
Katiyar, who founded the Vishwa Hindu Parishad’s (VHP) youth wing, Bajrang Dal, further said a bill should be introduced in Parliament that frames a punishment for those “who do not respect Vande Mataram, (and) those who insult the national flag, or hoist the Pakistani flag,” mentioned the report.
