    Abdullah's comment was a response to Vinay Katiyar, who said that "Muslims should not even be living in this country, they should go to Pakistan or Bangladesh".

    "Indian Muslims will not leave India. Whatever some madcaps might say, we will remain in India," Abdullah said.

    Katiyar, who founded the Vishwa Hindu Parishad's (VHP) youth wing, Bajrang Dal, further said a bill should be introduced in Parliament that frames a punishment for those "who do not respect Vande Mataram, (and) those who insult the national flag, or hoist the Pakistani flag."

    Katiyar's comment was a response to AIMIM president Asaduddin Owaisi demanded the framing of a law to punish anyone who calls an Indian Muslim a "Pakistani". OneIndia News
