NEW DELHI: Times of India quoted BJP MP Vinay Katiyar from ANI sources that “Muslims should not even be living in this country, they should go to Pakistan or Bangladesh”.
Mr. Katiyar, is one of the founders of Vishwa Hindu Parishad’s (VHP) youth wing, Bajrang Dal. He also said that a bill should be introduced in Parliament to frame a punishment for those “who do not respect Vande Mataram, (and) those who insult the national flag, or hoist the Pakistani flag.”
He was speaking in response to AIMIM president Asaduddin Owaisi’s demand to make a law to punish those who calls an Indian Muslim a “Pakistani”.
“Even after 70 years I am called a Pakistani. Why? We rejected (Pakistan founder Mohammad ALi) Jinnah’s invitation. Now I can’t even hoist the tricolour at free will. Why can’t there be a law just like those that apply to SC/STs?” asked Owaisi, according to Times Now
Owasi’s comments came days after Bareilly’s district magistrate (DM) expressed his disappointment on anti-Pakistan slogans in Muslim areas.
Without referring to Owaisi, Katiyar further said that “Muslims partitioned the country” on religious lines.
“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,” said Katiyar.
