Samajwadi Party leader and UP minister Azam Khan said Monday that BJP general secretary Amit Shah was a “goonda” (thug) and “qatil” (killer). He also described BJP prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi as an “enemy of the Muslims”.
Khan was campaigning for the party’s Ghaziabad candidate, Sudhan Rawat, in the Muslim-dominated Masuri area. Referring to Shah as “Goonda No. 1”, Khan said, “Humari majboori hai use goonda kehne ki, kisi qatil ko sharif nahi kaha ja sakta. (I am forced to call him a thug. A killer cannot be called a gentleman).”
Khan also said Modi was responsible for the 2002 Gujarat riots. Stating that the man who had referred to Muslims as “puppies” could “never work for the benefit of Muslims”, Khan said Modi’s policies would only serve to divide Hindus and Muslims.

Khan went on to talk about the Kargil incursion also. “Kargil fateh karne Hindu nahi, Mussalman fauji the (Those who ensured victory in Kargil weren’t Hindu but Muslim soldiers),” he said.
The BJP’s candidate in Ghaziabad, former Army General V K Singh, is looking to capitalise on the significant population of ex-servicemen in the area.
