Taking a jibe at Assam Governor P B Acharya, Samajwadi Party leader Azam Khan on Monday said Muslims would prefer ‘kabristan’ over Pakistan and suggested that he can go to Nepal, if he has any problem staying with the minority community.

This came a day after Acharya stoked controversy saying Indian Muslims are free to go anywhere, including Pakistan and Bangladesh.

“We prefer kabristan (graveyard) over going to Pakistan. If the governor has any problem in staying with us, he can go to Nepal. For him doors of Nepal cannot be closed,” he told reporters.

“There are a handful of people, who are trying to create a civil war in the country. They should decide their path. To whom should they complain against the governor? The president has all the information,” he said.

“All these things are an insult to the constitution. Whatever happened in 1992 was also against the constitution. The mosque was demolished there (Ayodhya). Now, Ram temple is there. Repeating the same thing is an attempt to vitiate the atmosphere,” he said.

“It appears that there is no constitution in the country. And if it is, attempts are on to finish it,” Khan alleged.

Attacking BJP and Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh chief Mohan Bhagwat’s “push for construction of the Ram temple”, the minister claimed that they had tried things like ‘love jihad’ and others but failed. Now, they are trying to incite feelings of Hindu with controversial statements, he added.
