The following are excerpts from speeches that Varun Gandhi is shown as delivering in at least two locations earlier this month in Pilibhit,from where he is contesting as the BJP candidate. The speeches figure in a video recording viewed by The Indian Express. On the directions of the Election Commission,the police today registered a criminal case against Gandhi.
Yeh panja nahi hai,yeh kamal ka haath hai. Yeh kat** ke galey ko kaat dega chunaav ke baad. Jai Shri Ram! Ram ji ki jai! Varun Gandhi kaat daalega! Kaat denge us haath ko,kaat denge,kaat daalega!
[This is not the (Congress symbol) hand,this is the hand of the lotus. It will cut the throat of the (derogatory reference to a Muslim) after the elections… Varun Gandhi will cut… Cut that hand,cut it,cut it.
Apne jao,apne gaon mein jao aur halla karo ki saara Hindu ek tarfa ho jao,chhetra ko Pakistan hone se bachao,aur saara Hindu ek tarfa ho jao!
[Go to your villages and give the call that all Hindus must unite to save this area from becoming Pakistan
Kya yeh sach nahin hai ki usko bola gaya ki mataji aapka naam kya hai… agar usne bola ki Bimla Devi,to usko kahaa ki dekhenge,sochenge… pehle paanch hazaar rupaye do… aur agar uska naam hai Saira Bano ya jo bhi Begum Hukum Begum… hum to jaante nahin hain… badey daraawne naam hotey hain inke… Karimullah… Mazharullah…. agar raat ko kabhi dikh jaayen… to darr rahen hain…
[Is it not true… that if (a woman) is asked her name and she says Bimla Devi,she is told well see,well think (about giving government aid),give us Rs 5,000 first… But if her name is Saira Bano or whatever begum Hukum Begum… I dont even know… These people have such scary-sounding names… Karimullah,Mazharullah… If you ever encountered them at night,youd be scared…
Meri ek behan hai… to ek pamphlet chhapa tha jisme saare pratiyashiyon ka picture likha hua hai… toh meri behan… us bitiya ne kaha… Bhaiya mujhe nahi pata tha ki aapke chhetra mein Osama bin Laden chunaav lad rahein hain… Maine kaha beta Osama bin Laden ko to America pakad nahi liya lekin Varun Gandhi ke to pakad mein bahut aane waale hain chunaav ke baad!
[I have a sister there was a pamphlet with pictures of all the candidates so this child told me,I didnt know that Osama bin Laden is contesting from your area. I told her,America couldnt get Osama,but Varun Gandhi is going to get a lot of people after the elections.
Jo aadmi thappad aapko maare,aapko kya karna chahiye? Doosra gaal aage kar dena chahiye Usse bewakoofi ki baat maine suni nahi hai aaj tak. Agar koi aadmi aapko thappad maare,to saale ka haath kat do ki kisi ko phir thappad nahi maar paaye baad mein.
[If someone slaps you,what do you do? (They say) turn the other cheek … I havent heard a stupider thing. If someone slaps you,you should cut off (expletive) his hand,so he can never slap anyone later.
…Agar kisi ne,kisi galat tatv ke aadmi ne,kisi Hindu pe haath uthaya…to main Gita ki kasam khake kehta hun ki main us haath ko kaat daalunga!
[If any wrong element,raises his hand on a Hindu…I swear on the Gita that I will cut off that hand!
