Top BJP leader threatens Indian Muslims from going to Hajj

New Delhi: A leader of Hindu extremist Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has warned Indian Muslims that they won’t be allowed to go on Hajj pilgrimage if they create obstacles in the construction of Ram Temple on the site of Babri Masjid at Ayodhya in Uttar Pradesh.

The BJP MLA, Brijbhushan Rajput, from Charkhari, Uttar Pradesh, in video message said, “The Muslim community should respect the feelings on the issue of Ram Temple of one billion Hindus in the country.”

“If they don’t do so, we will not respect their feelings too. If Muslims create hindrance or stop construction of Ram Temple , their Hajj pilgrimage will also be stopped,” Rajput said.

He further demanded that the minority status of Muslims should be repealed and the subsidy given on Hajj pilgrimage should be scrapped.

After putting up the video on his Facebook page, Rajput was quoted by Hindustan Times saying it was not his statement but that of 100 crore Hindus. Justifying his stand he said if Muslims were taking it as a threat then let it be. “I completely stand by what I have said in the video,” he added.
