maharaj-L BJP MP Sakshi Maharaj also claimed that Muslim youth in madrasas are being motivated for “love jihad” with offers of cash rewards.

Days after Home Minister Rajnath Singh denied any knowledge of “love jihad” and assured the minority communities that there would be no discrimination on the basis of religion or caste, his party MP from Unnao, Sakshi Maharaj, alleged on Sunday that madrasas across the country are imparting “education of terror” and “love jihad”.

He claimed that Muslim youth in madrasas are being motivated for “love jihad” with offers of cash rewards — Rs 11 lakh for an “affair” with a Sikh girl, Rs 10 lakh for a Hindu girl and Rs 7 lakh for a Jain girl.

Addressing an event in Kannauj, he also alleged that these madrasas do not hoist the national flag on Independence Day or Republic Day, and the government should stop giving them financial aid. He said he would  speak to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and also raise the issue in Parliament.

When contacted over the phone, Sakshi Maharaj admitted that he had made these remarks. He said the madrasas were making the students “terrorists” and “jihadis” and their education was not in the national interest. “Neither is the national flag hoisted on August 15 and January 26, nor is the national anthem sung there. They hoist only green flags,” he alleged.

When asked about the basis of such allegations, he claimed some of his men had converted to Islam and taken admission in these madrasas. He alleged that some Muslims had also informed him about such actvities by the madrasas.

The BJP MP further alleged that Muslim MPs also avoid attending functions in Parliament where the national anthem is sung. “I will demand that they should be removed as MPs. How can they be a member of the Indian Parliament when they do not hold regard for our national anthem?” he said.

      Dear Muslim brothers!Time has come to understand the real situation now. Every day in Media you will see news against Muslims. Such news are purposely created to Harm Islam and Muslims. They want Muslims to react to such news so that they will get chance to attack on us. But since BJP is in power either we react or don’t react they will definitely attack on Muslims. And of course they will blame Muslims even for this also. Hindus will wear dress like Muslims having bear and they will change the name to Muslim name (example in case of Love Jihad) and will show that these are Muslims who are terrorist. Most probably they will start this process of attacking in less Muslim poted areas and slowly spread all over India. Please get ready and prepare ourselves to resist these attacks.Make all precautions to protect our Women, Kids and Men against these devils, they are well planned, they are in power and most important they are liar. Only Allah can protect us from these Devils May Allah Protect All Muslims from these Iblis.

        Don't worry, these are cowards. Barking dog seldom bite. Allah is the protector. We will keep on following the right path. Such lairs cannot change the truth of Islam. They only can spread falsehood about Islam by misquoting and misleading the Hindus against Islam.

            More they spread lie about Islam more people read Islam and then they realize the truth and become Muslims. Maharaj now a days are caught in rape and lot crimes. They afraid of loosing their earning. By giving such baseless speeches they become Hero among stupids. But bloody Maharajah, remember one thing, if you collect all Maharaj even then you will not be able to change the truth of Islam. You can only spread lie nothing else.

              These Hypocrites Maharajas fails to explain the contraindications in Hinduism, so they started spreading lie about Islam by misquoting text from Quran and sunnah. But truth stands out clear and falsehood will perish.

                        War against Islam has started now. BJP once again started attacking on Muslims. Innocent people will suffer now from both communities.

                            You are proving his point...Madarssa is (supposedly!!) not a religious insution nor should it be..all educational insutions in India have flag hoisting events and respect the national flag..Unless ofcourse the so-called school of learning(madarssa) is just another front for soemthing else...

                              Hindus have always been gullible when it came to Abrahamic religions. From the lustful advances of Alaudin Khilji on Padmini to love jihadist on the payroll of mosques, the Hindu woman has been content being a trophy wife. Hindus convert on the drop of a hat, because some told them that all religions are the same, and that one cannot be converted to Hinduism. Let Hindus take on these bigots in their own backyard now. Simply make conversion to Hinduism compulsory through marriage and preach at a gr root level how refreshing it is being a Hindu, unlike chopping of hands or heads.

                                I am sure Mr Sakshi Maharaj has not visited any Madrasa personally before making this comment. Ask him to name one such Madrasa and then get it investigated rather than making general comments, he does not seem to be in sync with the ideology of his Boss Mr Narendra Modi Develpoment over Religion : (

                                      Muslims ask, What about this and what about that ???? The questions are diverting tactics to stray away from original argument. 2 wrongs doesn't make 1 rightdeed Islamic schools are breeding ground for radicalized youths. Teachings of Kuran is always misinterpreted through out the world. And kids are brainwashed as the mug up the evil stuff 1000 times a day. These schools should follow same law as other normal schools.

                                        May be or May be not. Though no one can deny the presence of wide scale activities called 'Love Jihad', with as many as 24 cases emerging in the media over the past 14 days.

                                          More religious and therefore more difficult to land.

                                            It is plausible. On account of this article, now I realized there is really no Tri-color in any Madras I have known. Also they get aid, that is pathetic and need to stop. I have been informed that in Kerala, Madras are promoting Islam and provoking locals to convert India into Islamic country. This greed for everything is going to cost us a peace in near future, if we don't stop entertaining such things. BJP is definitely heading in the right direction. Jai Hind
