Shameless Indian BJP Minister called Darul Uloom Deoband as gangotri of terrorism in India
NEW DELHI - Shameless Indian BJP Minister called Darul Uloom Deoband as gangotri of terrorism in India.
In a controversial remark, Union Minister and BJP leader Giriraj Singh on Tuesday (February 11) said that Deoband is a 'gangotri of terrorism' and several terrorists, including Lashkar-e-Taiba chief Hafiz Saeed, are born in this Uttar Pradesh town.
Singh made the comments in the backdrop of anti-Citizenship Amendment Act protests in Deoband. "We were not able to make people aware about CAA.
I have always maintained that people from Deoband, who are against CAA, were terrorist; all the big terrorists of the world were born here.
I have said it before also that Deoband is Gangotri of Terrorism. The likes of Hafiz Saeed come from here," Singh told the media in Saharanpur.
Notably, hundreds of women in Deoband have been protesting against the CAA since January 27. Though some local clerics urged them to end the protest the women refused to call off the stir.
Deoband is home to renowned Islamic seminary of Darul Uloom, which has also submitted a memorandum to the central government and the Chief Justice of India against the CAA.
Darul Uloom has also justified the pan-India movement against CAA and proposed nationwide National Register of Citizens saying the protests are aimed to protect the Indian Constitution.
