The Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) Sunday said SP leader Kamaal Farooqui was “fit to be in Pakistan” after his comments over the arrest of alleged Indian Mujahideen co-founder Yasin Bhatkal.

“Those who are supporting anti-nationals and terrorists should be branded as anti-nationals and should be in Pakistan,” VHP international working president Praveen Togadia told reporters here. Togadia made the comment against the backdrop of Farooqui asking whether Bhatkal’s arrest was “based on crime or religion”.

The VHP leader said,“This Farooqui is fit to be in Pakistan. If he is supporting anti-nationals and terrorists,he is anti-national and fit to be in Pakistan.”

The Congress and the BJP have slammed Farooqui for his comment calling it “ridiculous” and “regrettable”. SP has,however,distanced itself from Farooqui’s remarks saying they reflected his personal views.
