The country is exhibiting a nationwide outrage on Kathua rape case of 8-year-old girl Asifa, but on the other hand, many people and political leaders are also giving insensitive statements. In the same row, a BJP leader from faraway Madhya Pradesh has presented a conspiracy theory and controversial statement. He claimed that he is suspicious about the involvement of Pakistan in the case.
BJP Madhya Pradesh chief Nandkumar said in a statement that “If the Jai Shri Ram slogans are raised over the rape of nation’s eight-year-old daughter in Kashmir, then Pak agents would have done something so that they created a rift among us,”. Further, he said “If a state like Kashmir is witnessing something like this, then there could be involvement of Pak agents,”
