BJP MLA from Khatauli, Vikram Saini vented out hate speech against minority communities at a public function. Saini attacked Muslim and Christian Minority Communities specifically. He said that "some foolish leaders allowed bearded men to stay in India" and "now we(Hindus) are in a fix because of them." He said that the Muslims received the amount of money proportional to the length of their beards, through the government-sponsored welfare schemes given by last government. Attacking the Christian community he said that the New Year for Hindus "will fall on March 18 and not on January 1".
