Muslims Should Have Been Sent To Pakistan In 1947

On Thursday 20 Feb 2020, the Union minister for animal husbandry, dairy and fisheries Giriraj Singh said “The time has come to dedicate ourselves to the cause of country. Before 1947, our ancestors had been fighting for the independence of the country and Jinnah was planning to make India an Islamic state. Our ancestors committed a major lapse for which we are paying the price today – if at that time the Muslims had been sent there [Pakistan], we would not have had to face this situation,” . Giriraj Singh is a well-known member of the government who has openly voiced his strong dislike for Muslims many times and is rarely pulled up by the BJP. Just four days ago, Mr Singh was reportedly summoned by BJP chief JP Nadda over his comment alleging that the Islamic seminary Deoband in Uttar Pradesh is an "aatankvaad ki Gangotri (fountainhead of terrorism)".
