Uttar Pradesh Cabinet Minister Mohd Azam Khan on Sunday alleged that BJP was indulging in “politics of hatred” and termed the sort of politics as “dangerous for the country and the society”.

“Dalits are being provoked by BJP to create rift between them and Muslims. Moradabad incident was orchestrated on the lines of riots in Muzaffarnagar,” Azam told PTI here.

He alleged that BJP took advantage of Muzaffarnagar riots in the recently-concluded Lok Sabha polls and now it wanted to repeat the same by triggering such incidents in other parts of the state like Moradabad for political gains in by-elections.

“BJP’s aim is to take advantage of incident like Moradabad in Assembly by-elections,” the Minister said.

He alleged that those involved in violence in Kanth in Moradabad were not local people but outsiders.

“They were brought from Haryana and other adjoining states and this was the reason they covered their faces,” he alleged.

“BJP is indulging in politics of hatred which is dangerous not only for the society, but also for the country. They don’t believe in democracy and law of the country,” Azam alleged.

The issue of holding of a ‘mahapanchayat’ in Kanth area turned into a violent protest on July 4, during which BJP leaders, including four MPs, and an MLA who were accused in the Muzaffarnagar riots were detained.

    Congress party has always been communal, always lifting one section at the cost of other. Azam Khan has been always speaking vulgarity. No one should take any notice of him, he should be shunted out.

      It is the communal congress party which has been been dividing people based on religion/caste for the last 65 years and they call it "Secularism".

            Congress and SP are worst communal parties. They divide society based on religion and crate communal tension. Then they blame BJP. These parties should be banned from Indian politics.
