BJP MP Vinay Katiyar on Wednesday issued a controversial statement, saying Muslims should not live in India and they should go to either Pakistan or Bangladesh.

Also, he demanded a bill to punish those who do not respect 'Vande Mataram', those who insult the national flag and those who hoist the Pakistani flag.
"There should be a bill that punishes those who do not respect Vande Mataram, those who insult the national flag... those who hoist the Pakistani flag, they should be punished, " he said.
