Deoband is a Gangotri of terrorism: BJP’s Giriraj Singh

Sabrangindia 12 Feb 2020

Not new to making controversial statements, Union Minister Giriraj Singh has called Deoband a ‘Gangotri of terrorism’.

Talking to the media in Saharanpur on Tuesday he said, “The government is not able to make people aware of CAA. I have always said that people from Deoband, who are against CAA, were terrorists; all the big terrorists of the world are born here. I have said it before too that Deoband is Gangotri of Terrorism. Hafiz Saeed belongs to here.”

Singh who was in Saharanpur on the invite of the Jansankhya Samadhan Foundation and the Hindu Jagran Manch to stress on a population control legislation and support the CAA, reported the Dainik Bhaskar. He also said, “India faces no danger from Pakistan, but from the traitors in its own country.”

 

 

Speaking about the women-led protests taking place in Deoband, a town in Saharanpur, Uttar Pradesh, at the Idgah ground since January 27 he said, “These people are not against CAA, they are against India. This is almost like the Khilafat movement.”

He had earlier also targeted the protestors at Shaheen Bagh alleging that ‘suicide bombers’ were being raised there. He had said, “This Shaheen Bagh protest is no longer an agitation. A group of suicide bombers is being raised here and a conspiracy against the country is being hatched in its capital.”

 

 

He also said that if the matter was only about the CAA, Sharjeel Imam wouldn’t have spoken about separating Assam from India and alleged that he called for making India an Islamic Rashtra.

This is just another communal rant coming from Giriraj Singh. His party members have continuously been attacking those protesting against the CAA by either calling them terrorists or traitors.
