NEW DELHI - Indian ruling party BJP’s Alwar Urban MLA Banwari Lal Singhal has said that most people from the Meo Muslim community are criminals and he would never ask for their votes. Speaking to The Indian Express on Wednesday, Singhal stuck to the statements he made to reporters in Alwar.
“There is absolutely no doubt that most people from the Meo community are involved in criminal activities, be it grabbing lands or trapping Hindu girls as part of a planned strategy of love jihad.
I have never asked for their votes and neither will in future, as otherwise I might be morally bound to protect them from legal action for their criminal acts,” Singhal said.
The MLA had recently told the media that in his constituency “love jihad” is a big issue, mostly perpetrated by people from the Meo community. He had also said that he always maintains a distance from people of the community.
