Rohtak (Haryana), Sep 6(ANI): Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) President Rajnath Singh on Sunday warned the party members to avoid talking about Mohammed Ali Jinnah, the man who BJP holds responsible for the division of the country and massacre of lakhs of people, failing which would invite a strict action from the party.
"Jinnah was responsible for dividing the country into two. We won't accept a person like Jinnah, who was responsible for the massacre of lakhs of people. So, if anybody talks about him, we won't hesitate to take a strict action against him or her," Rajnath Singh said.
BJP crisis boiled over after senior party leader Jaswant Singh was expelled for writing a book sympathetic to Mohammed Ali Jinnah, the founder of Pakistan.
The Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) and BJP hold Jinnah responsible for India's partition, and its strong views on that were notices at the expulsion of Jaswant Singh.
Singh further said that BJP was not against Muslims, on the other hand it has always sought to unite people belonging from different religions and creed. (ANI)
