Kozhikode (Kerala), Sep 25, 2016: BJP chief Amit Shah on Sunday lashed out on Pakistan for disturbing territorial and global peace.
Speaking on the last day of the two-day long BJP National Council Meet in Kozhikode, Kerala, Shah said, “If a country makes terrorism its state policy, it’s nothing less than a war crime.”
While hitting out at Pakistan’s PM Nawaz Sharif for his much-criticized speech at United Nationals General Assembly (UNGA), the BJP chief said that Pakistan had been brazenly supporting and sponsoring terrorism.
“Pakistan’s prime minister Nawaz Sharif’s speech at UN is the solid proof that Pakistan advocates terrorism across the globe. The whole world is surprised at Sharif’s blatant attempt to paint self-proclaimed commander of terror outfit Hizbul Mujahideen, Burhan Wani as a peace loving youth,” Shah said.
He also paid tribute to Jan Sangh ideologue Pandit Deendayal Upadhyaya by calling him an exceptional thinker and a humanist par excellence on his birth anniversary.
Shah referred to Upadhyaya — an RSS member and former President of Jan Sangha — as “an alternative thinker, who, when everyone was busy with communism, capitalism, came up with an ideology of ‘humanism'”.
He thanked and praised Prime Minister Narendra Modi too, who was present at the meet.
Upadhyaya, a politician, philosopher, economist, sociologist, historian, journalist was born on September 25, 1916 in Uttar Pradesh. He served as the Bharatiya Jana Sangh from 1967 until his death in 1968.
