BJP MP Yogi Adityanath has intensified his attack on Muslims, blaming the community for all the riots that have taken place in Uttar Pradesh, where his party is gearing up for bypolls in 11 seats.

Adityanath, who is among the three party leaders entrusted with leading the BJP campaign for the upcoming bypolls in Uttar Pradesh, said on Aap Ki Adalat programme on India TV that there are three categories of places where communal riots occur.

“In places where there are 10 to 20 per cent minorities, stray communal incidents take place. Where there are 20 to 35 per cent of them, serious communal riots take place and where they are more than 35 per cent, there is no place for non-Muslims,” he said.

Justifying his provocative speeches in the past, in which he said if a Hindu is killed 10 Muslims will be killed in retaliation, the Gorakhpur MP said, “Whatever I had then said was conditional. If the other is a danav (devil), not a manav (human), then one has to reply. If I have a mala (rosary) in one hand, I also carry a bhala (javelin) in the other. As a sanyasi, I can also punish the evil elements.”

The BJP MP has been under attack after two CDs recently surfaced in which he is shown making inflammatory speeches. “If you (minorities) kill one of us, do not expect that you will remain safe. If the other side doesn’t stay in peace, we’ll teach them how to stay in peace in the language they understand,” he said.

His party leaders refused to comment on the remarks. One BJP leader, however, said Adityanath’s comments would “embarrass” the party leaders. “One has to draw a line somewhere,” he said.

Interestingly, Adityanath, who has been vocal on the party’s campaign against “love jihad”, attributed the origin of the term to Communist veteran and former Kerala CM V S Achuthanandan. “Everyone knows that love jihad is a part of the strategy to turn India into a Muslim country,” he said.

Adityanath asked if any Muslim priest can celebrate Diwali or Holi. “If you want to live here, you will have to respect Indian culture and traditions. You cannot have your body here but mind in Pakistan.”

                In fact there is a big problem with us in Indian societythat most of us speak either being a Hindu or a Muslim or else more and beingan Indian less for the sake of country. seeds of such mentality are sown bypetty politicians for their political ends. And Indians being most humbledpeople in the world who even accept to warship rivers, trees, stones, sun,water, personalities etc whichever they find useful along with their creatoralso get impressed very easily by either hallow slogans of hiduttuva and ramrajh and feel superior national and others who are not Hindus seem them to beanti nationals, or salogans like Islam is in danger, being Muslims your duty istoo hate the rest and more than that Muslims are made to feel suppressed byeven some Muslim leaders with petty political interests. In fact both areagainst the teachings of Islam as well as that of Hinduism. Those who neverlead a religious life are more eager to die or kill in the name of religion.This atmosphere is deliberately created among both Hindus and Muslims in India.they are blindfolded so by their political leaders and being innocentand humbled people become easy tools of destruction of democracy andsecularism. We in India need to develop a broader, more realistic, more fact-fuland self deciding mind with humane approach which petty politicians never wantto take place because it will compel them for being answerable for theirresponsibilities of development and smooth governance, failure of whichendangers their chair of power and loot.we should understand thatreligion is always more convincing than provoking, it is about to more lovingthan hating. once everyone will follow his own religion on itsfundamental principles peace will come automatically. If you think yourreligious path is better than others impress others by your noble thoughts andbehavior and prove your idea to be right, the way which all the prophetsadopted. It is amazing that you spread and provoke hate want others tothink like you forcefully, deal them iron handed and still claim yourself to bein good belief. It is not the proof that you are good either being Hindu orMuslim. If you are good impress others by your goodness that shall prove you.petty politicians shall never let the public think so.good intentions civil societies, perfect religious leaders andall humane Indians in any religion who have adopted silence and kept themself apart of this mess need to come forward and educate the mes towards right sentiments and save India from further divisionssincerelyMohammed Farooq Kalas

                    Without Muslims India had no image and will be having no image.If Indians want that this country should progress then it's better to chop the heads of such s who grow the seeds of hate among us.

                          There was a cia / usa study made a few years back and they had similar report Muslims are peaceful and lie low when they form about 5 percent of the potion in any country After it as their proportion increases they make demands on the social and political structure of a country ----Halal food Burkhas , mosques etc .After 20 percent they become aggressive in their demands like sharia , separate laws which culminates in the demand for a separate state when they get to above 25 percent In many areas in indua there are muslim areas which are mini stan where a non muslim cannot walk without harment Study the pattern and you will see in all cases of Muslim communalism are areas which have substantial muslim potion .Muslim communalism is linked to muslim percentage in area and the appeat which results from this ----after all Muslims are appeased because they form a big percentage in area and muslim leverage this to press the body politic

                              Freedom of Speech. His observations are facts. All Indians in India have experienced this and know it to be true. Under the guise of being politically correct...nothing has been said before. This Swami speaks the truth which are backed by facts. He is actually giving the numbers himself and the local potion agrees. Look at Bhiwandi in Maharashtra. Too many Muslims and lots of Riots and underworld dons belonging to which community??? Muslims. Mumbai...capital city of Maharashtra......Bandra west.....Big Mosque there.....call to prayers 5 times a day and huge crowd doing Namaz blocks the roads. Makes you feel like you are not in Maharashtra or India but in stan. In Mumbai area: Mumbra, Govandi, Bandra (East), Nagpada, Bhendi Bazaar, Zhaveri Bazaar and Mahim, to some degree, are well-known as Muslim pockets. Time to put Anti-terror moles among them and take out the bad guys.

                                  Man is right. He speaks the truth. All political parties have been trying to be politically correct. He has right to speak. Muslims are not a minority. They are in millions and are strong and able to riot and have their own underworld. Look at Dawood Ibrahim...controlling his empire from stan, Karachi I believe. ISI is hiding him actively due to the successful OBL raid. He is not Hindu. He is a wanted Muslim terrorist. His family is safe in Mumbai. In any other country they would all have been locked up...as there are numerous cases against all of them. India is too nice to this community and they do not appreciate it. If you do not like it...goto Terroristan next door. They dont like Mohajirs from India either.

                                      No muslim majority country is secular country. ISIS is killing lakhs of non muslims and the w world is silent. One has to raise the voice against evils. Whatever he has said is based on facts not on umption. Can't everyone see the real situation.
