Kanpur, Dec 31: In sarcastic comments Samajwadi party leader Azam Khan today took on outfits demanding construction of a temple dedicated to Mahatma Gandhi's assassin Nathuram Godse, saying such temple should be constructed in every state.
"The temple of Nathura Godse should not come up at any one place but should come up at every district in the country and no one will have any objection to this," said Khan who was here to attend a function at friends' place yesterday.
Recently, activists of Akhil Bharatiya Hindu Mahasabha had allegedly performed a ceremony in Meerut for construction of a "temple" dedicated to Godse, following which the administration ordered a probe into the matter.
On the issue of conversion, the UP Urban Development minister said," The BJP members should first do ghar-vapsi of Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi and Shahnawaz Hussain, after that they should convert religions of others."
He said that situation will not be able to deteriorate and if any one tries to indulge in this, action will be taken as per law.
Questioned about several remarks made by UP Governor Ram Naik on different issues, Khan said "Governor holds a constitutional position and such statements should not be made by him."
