BJP Minister spews hatred against Muslim student

Union Minister Babul Supriyo, from the BJP Party, has threatened a Muslim student to pack off the student to "his own country". The student had commented on a Facebook post by the minister questioning his educational qualification. To this comment, Supriyo retorted with the threat: "Mustafizur Rahaman let me first pack you off to your country, then will send the reply in a postcard". This enraged protests from netizens and various organisations. The student had then demanded a public apology by the minister, to which Supriyo refused.
