The political slugfest over the gangrape of a woman and her 14-year-old daughter in Bulandshahr hit a new low Wednesday as a senior BJP leader attacked Uttar Pradesh minister Azam Khan saying that the Samajwadi Party leader would feel the intensity of the incident only if his “wife and daughter were gangraped”.

“Miyan Azam Khan ke beti aur bibi se gang rape ho jaye tab Azam ki aankh khulegi Bulandshahr highway par 12 saal ki beti aur maa ke saath gang rape par ochhi baat kahi (Azam Khan’s eyes would open only if his daughter and wife were gangraped. He has made absurd comments on the gangrape of the 12-year-old girl and her mother in Bulandshahr),” state BJP spokesperson I P Singh said in a tweet.

Singh was reacting to Azam Khan’s controversial statement two days ago where he suggested that the Bulandshahr gangrape could be an outcome of political conspiracy against the ruling party, drawing condemnation from rival parties.

When contacted, Singh stood by his remarks. “I am deeply pained with the statement that Azam gave on the
Bulandshahr gangrape. I will not remove my tweet until Azam tenders apology for his remark,” Singh said. He claimed that the tweet was his personal view and not the BJP’s.

Singh, who claims to have had minister rank status in Kalyan Singh government, had been associated with BJP for the past 25 years.

Reacting to Singh’s comments, Azam said: “This is the culture of BJP. You can complain to one from whom you expect decent remarks.”

“I am a sensitive person. Bulandshahr incident is condemnable and strict action is needed in the case. Similar
incidents have also happened, if the government or I want to know the reality behind it, what is wrong in it? It will only increase the sections in the FIR and in future could save a girl. If someone abuses me for that, then he can do so,” he told reporters here.

Azam’s colleague in IP cabinet and Samajwadi Party spokesperson Rajendra Chaudhary said, “By using objectionable
language for family of Azam sahab, BJP leaders have clarified their level of morality. There is a planned
conspiracy behind the attack on Azam sahab. After communal people failed to disturb harmony in the state, they have
started making cheap remarks on him.”

Chaudhary also said that Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav took quick action but “BJP and RSS people are giving it
political colour” to the incident. He claimed that communal forces were playing with sentiments of victims’ family by presenting Azam’s statement in wrong reference.

Azam had earlier stoked controversy by terming the gangrape of the minor-daughter duo by a gang of robbers last week as attempt to “malign” the SP government by those who want to “come to power” in poll-bound UP.

    This is scary. lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;The fact that there is a brutal movement in Christianity that legitimizes child abuse in the name of Christian God. One story involves a judge whi,pping his daughter with a belt on a YouTube clip that has gone viral. The other involves books by Christian Evangelical leaders on child spanking, even beating and molesting.lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;But what many people don’t seem to realize is that in the Christian Evangelical alternative universe of the home school movement, tightly knit church communities and the Christian cult following of a number of big time leaders and authors, physical punishment and Child abuses of children has been glorified for years.lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;As a story in the New York Times illustrates — “Preaching Virtue of Spanking, Even as De.aths Fuel Debate” — a famous Evangelical author and his co-author wife, Michael and Debi Pearl, are being tied to several de.aths of children killed by parents alleged to be using the Pearls’ “methods” advocated in their book To Train Up a Child.lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;And according to ABC News, a prominent Texas judge who was filmed be.ating his disabled daughter with a belt and cursing at her said he was merely disciplining his child in the name of his Christian God and did nothing wrong.

      Jihadi's which have taken over our media have one single goal. Be anti-Hindu. They know that this way the muslims ruled India, the Christian Britishers who came as Christian traders ruled India. And by dividing India, muslims got together with CONgress and divided India. And finally CONgress ruled India by dividing Hindus. So now being losers they are licking their wounds. They cannot handle a Hindu PM who treats all Indians the same. No more SOPs to so called minorities. No more rampant conversion using foreign money. The numbers are staggering. 15,000 crores came from Church and Jihadi outfits in Saudi to convert and divide India. lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;Now the media funded by same Jihadi and Church want to go after BJP which was legitimately elected by Indians wants to overthrow an elected government using media. How can they do that. Keep coming out with some campaign after another campaign. First the Award Wapsi program from the psuedo intellectual elite who dont deserve those awards in the first place. But to thank CONgress for giving them awards they dont deserve they made a big news. So how did they stop returning their awards? Did they return the money also with interest what they got as part of award? You will be surprised to know it is a BIG NO. Then asking Dawood controlled Bollywood jihadi muslim stars like Aamir Khan and SRK to say there was intolerance. That backfired. Aamir wanted to move to America but if Donald Trump comes to power he will ban Aamir but allow his wife to move to America. So the only logical option Aamir has to move to stan. SRK can anyday move to stan since he is from Pashtun area. lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;Now they want to go after RSS. Everything is RSS's fault. Really moron. You think the people are stupid. Remember if there is a backlash everything will be muslim's fault which you dont want to happen. Dont start these jihadi campaigns.
