BJP MP blames rising muslim population for rapes

Hari Om Pandey

Faizabad, July 27: Senior Bharatiya Janata Party MP Hari Om Pandey evoked a fresh controversy, saying the crimes such as rape and murder are rapidly increasing because of the growing Muslim population in India.

The Ambedkar Nagar lawmaker also stated that soon a new country like Pakistan will be carved out from India if the central government fails to curb the rising Muslim population in the upcoming days.

“The menaces such as of terrorism, rape, sexual harassment prevailing in India is only because of the rising Muslim populations. If one looks closely, there is a rapid increase in the percentage of Muslim populants since the time of Independence”, Pandey asserted.

He further said that the increased population will result in unemployment and stagnant economic growth which in-turn will bring anarchy in India.

Beside this, Pandey also said a bill pertaining to the matter should be introduced in the Parliament and the necessary steps should be taken at the earliest to control the population.

“I believe that a bill on population control must be introduced in the Parliament in order to save India from another dreadful partition,” he said.

Given up on ‘achche din’, people now await ‘sachche din’: Congress

Surjewala

New Delhi, Aug 15 (IANS) Reacting to Prime Minister Narendra Modis customary Independence Day speech, the Congress on Wednesday said all the Prime Minister said was “meaningless” for the common people who have given up on “achche din” (good days) promised by Modi in 2014 and are now waiting for “sachche din” (truthful days).

“The Prime Minister in his last address to the nation (before next Lok Sabha polls) on Independence Day did not utter a single word that would be meaningful to the common person. The people are now tired of the fake ‘achche din’ and are really waiting for ‘sachche din’ when Modiji will depart as the Prime Minister of the country,” Congress spokesman Randeep Singh Surjewala said.

The Congress spokesman also challenged Modi for an open debate on issues of corruption, Rafale deal, Vyapam scam, “failing” economy, falling rupee, foreign policy, mob lynchings and woman safety, among others.

“In 2013, Modiji had challenged then Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to an open debate on the issues of corruption, on China and Pakistan threatening the territorial integrity of India, on falling rupee and economy, on unemployment as also farmers and women.

“We ask Prime Minister Modi today, is he ready for a debate on those very issues with the Congress President Rahul Gandhi? Will he debate on the issue of corruption, Rafale and Vyapam? Will he debate on the failing economy and falling rupee? Rupee has hit a new low of 70 per dollar and trade deficit has gone over $18 billion,” Surjewala said.

“Will he debate on the manner China has occupied Doklam, and intruding into Ladakh and engulfing India from all sides? Will he debate on Pakistan’s sponsored terrorism? Will he debate on the rampant unemployment prevailing in the country?” he added.

Commenting on Modi’s observation that world leaders are acknowledging India’s prowess, Surjewala said that Modi should desist from “undermining Indians’ contribution to the world over the last 70 years”.

“Let Prime Minister not insult India and India’s entrepreneurial spirit. It has not happened in just the last four years. India was always a power and India is a power that the world reckons with,” the Congress leader said.

Amit Shah

The Congress on Wednesday took a jibe at Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) President Amit Shah, saying those who cannot handle the national flag cannot be expected to handle the nation.

The Congress’ jibe came after Shah fumbled while hoisting the national flag at the BJP headquarters. The Tricolour slipped down the pole to the ground as soon as Shah pulled the string.

“How could those who cannot handle the national flag would handle the nation? If those who derided the tricolour for over 50 years had not done so, things would not have come to such a pass,” the Congress party tweeted as it shared the video of the fumble.

“Those who give certificates of patriotism to others are oblivious of the etiquette of the national anthem,” it added.
