Union minister and BJP leader Giriraj Singh on Tuesday described Islamic seminary Darul Uloom Deoband in Uttar Pradesh as the 'gangotri of terrorism', and blamed the region for nurturing terrorists. “I have said it earlier that Deoband is the gangotri of terrorists,” he told the media in Saharanpur on Tuesday. “All most wanted terrorists of the world came from Deoband, including Hafiz Saeed or any of the others. These people are not against CAA, they are against India. This is a kind of a Khilafat movement.” The Islamic seminary Darul Uloom Deoband is located in the town. Singh also alleged that if the protests against the amended Citizenship Act were just about the legislation, then Jawaharlal Nehru University student Sharjeel Imam would not have made the call to “divide the country”. “It is evident that minds of the young and women are being poisoned,” he said.
