If all Muslims had gone to Pakistan, India would not have been in this situation: BJP Minister Giriraj Singh

Union Minister and BJP’s firebrand leader Giriraj Singh sparked controversy with remarks about Muslims and the India-Pakistan partition after Durga idol immersion processions in Begusarai, Aurangabad, and Chapra.

Giriraj Singh stated, “Our ancestors made a grave mistake for which we are paying a heavy price today. I spent 28 days in prison during the 1992 Ayodhya movement. If all the Muslims had chosen to go to Pakistan at that time, India would not have been in this position.”

He alleged that the Bihar government’s policies are promoting discrimination. Singh said that he was concerned over incidents of stone-pelting during Durga Puja immersion processions in Begusarai, Aurangabad, and Chapra, stating that it is an unfortunate situation.

“Even today, the Bihar government is implementing appeasement policies. They are favouring one community over the others. It is a matter of grave concern,” he said.

“The government’s appeasement policy is the root cause of these incidents. In Begusarai, the Shiva Linga of Hindus was desecrated, and in that case, four dozen Hindus were falsely implicated. If it were the religious place of another community that had been damaged, Begusarai would have erupted in violence. But the administration is favouring one side under the government’s influence. Hindus are being trapped at the government’s behest,” Singh said.

Giriraj Singh said that if the people of the country do not seriously consider these issues in a timely manner, they will have to pay a heavy price in 10 to 20 years.
