Muslims should not stay in India: BJP MP Vinay Katiyar BJP’s senior leader Vinay Katiyar

Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP Vinay Katiyar on Wednesday stirred another controversy after he said that Muslims should not stay in India as the ‘community divided the country on the basis of population’.

Speaking to ANI, Katiyar said, “Muslims should not stay in India. They divided the nation on the basis of population. So, what’s the need of them staying here (in India)? They have been given lands. (They) should go to Bangladesh or Pakistan.”

The BJP MP also said that there should be a bill to punish those who do not respect Vande Matram. “There should be a bill that punishes those who do not respect Vande Matram, those who insult the national flag… those who hoist the Pakistani flag, they should be punished,” Katiyar said.

Katiyar’s remarks came after AIMIM chief Asaddudin Owaisi demanded that there should be a law against those who call an Indian Muslim ‘a Pakistani’. Speaking to the media on Tuesday outside the parliament, Owaisi urged the government to introduce a law to this effect and suggested a punishment with three-year jail term to any person who says this, reported ANI.

Two days ago, Katiyar had said that the Taj Mahal in Agra will soon become “Tej Mandir”. When asked about the ‘Taj Mahostav’ being held in Agra, the MP told ANI, “Call it Taj Mahotsav or Tej Mahotsav both are the same things. There is not much difference between Taj and Tej. Our Tej Mandir has been turned into a cremation ground by Aurangzeb.Taj Mahal will be converted into Tej Mandir soon.”

    The least that the Supreme court should do is to charge this person with sedition and treason. The country should arise to this anti-national statement and the party's silence amounting to aiding and abetting in this treasonous activity must be prosecuted. What more proof is required to prove that this party is all out to destroy the integrity and diversity of this country on ill-found, discriminatory and indoctrinated beliefs.

      Mr. Katiyar is wrong and is embrassing many nationalist muslims who also are fedup with pseudoseculars and likes of Owasis. This should not be silly reaction to what Owasis said, as Owasis brothers are known to make outlandish claim. Even if theer is some logic in what Katiyar said, it is too late and three generations of muslims are born here after 1947. Nehru and congies managed to con Indians especially Hindus and it cant be corrected this way! Better way is gharwapsi, good for India and also for the poor souls misled or forced to change by foreign thuggish invaders. That should be slow and continuous process of teaching true history, government incentives like some affirmative action for people getting back to their ancestors faith, of Indic origin. Holding the true history mirror distorted by marxist propa sts is the need of the hour. The roots lie there and that is why all these left/marxist./j!hadi/vatican supported 'historians' 'intellectuals' are so upset!

        The Aryan manuvaadis to which the MP and his tribe belongs, should leave India and go back to Central Asia countries from where they came. We Dravidians want the Aryans to vacate India.

          Now the stock market is crumbling due to the follies of MODI , JETLY AND AMIT SHAH trio this is just another diversion tactic of CHADDI GANG which the nation is getting well accustomed off. Tonight this will be all over the debate and saffron channels like Republic, Times now etc. All of them will shout sly denouncing this frustrated (wannabe CM of UP) KATIYAR. Mr KATIYAR ...go to NEPAL...the only hindu rashtra the world had seen. The muslims of this country will live and die for this and on this beautiful country which you frustrated lot want to destroy by your communal venom.

                Harsh Kumarf exactly dude i concur with everything u said, yet i see even south Indians along with Muslims venting their frustration and hate on everything hindu . this hypocrisy needs to be addressed. they cant fathom the fact that india as a whole is a 3rd world s h it with no s and justice. they are fighting over very limited resources with weapons of hate and divide. blame the system not the people and if u got goda(guts) then try and change it.

              Dear Mr. Vinay Katiar, You should thankful to the Muslim , today you don't have a political career if Muslim wouldnot have existed in I ndia. BJP owes to muslim there key to power , instead of grateful to them you want to sabotage yourself by despatching them en masse. hypothetically speaking , if muslim cease to exist then how come you make fool to such large population of hindus, oh may be then u might divide it on caste line another potent weapon. think of your political existence without hatred towards muslim your party is nothing ..so embrace them it is good for your survival and find out meer qassim and jaychand to vindicate your stand I told you so .... owaisi is not enough , plz pay a visit to junior owaisi so that he can boost your sinking career by uttering some nonsense another life support for 2019 much needed oxygen. moreover, thanks for telling india that whole 5 yr u r busy solving the menace called MUSLIM and u need another tenure to fix it ..
