BJP lawmakers continue targeting India’s religious minorities

“Muslims should not stay in India,” if a lawmaker in India’s ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is to be believed. This remark from  member of Parliament Vinay Katiyar is the latest in a series of provocative statements targeting the nation’s Muslim minority. The lack of any public rebuke from Prime Minister Narendra Modi has added credence to these statements, say political opponents
Katiyar was quoted by ANI as saying, “Why do the Muslim need to stay in this country when a partition was created based on [the religions of the] population? They were given a separate piece of land. So they should go to Pakistan or Bangladesh; what purpose do they have here?”
