BJP gave Muslims sanctity: RS Prasad. Tell that to families of Akhlaq & Pehlu Khan

On Friday, Union telecom minister said that the BJP has given Muslims “proper sanctity” even though the party does not get Muslim votes.

“We have got 13 chief ministers of our own. We are ruling the country. Have we victimised any Muslim working in the industry or service? Have we dismissed them? We don’t get Muslim votes. I acknowledge very clearly, but have we given them proper sanctity or not?” Prasad asked at the Mindmine Summit in Delhi.

The minister faced flak from several quarters. Hyderabad MP and All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen president Asaduddin Owaisi said that Muslims are given rights by the Constitution and they are not dependent on BJP.

 

 

Strangely, Prasad ended up contradicting himself. His comment that “Muslims don't vote for BJP” belies his earlier claim that Muslim women had voted for BJP because of Triple Talaq.

 

No data to display.

 

Here are some of the other responses to Ravi Shankar Prasad's rather patronising statement.
