    'Narendra Modi does not want Muslims to progress in India'

    Azam Khan and Modi
    Lucknow, Aug 27: Motormouth leader of Samajwadi Party (SP) -- Azam Khan lashed out at Prime Minister of India -- Narendra Modi. Khan on Wednesday, Aug 27 claimed that the PM does not want Muslims to progress in the country.

    Leaving a comment, which may create another controversy in the country over religion, Khan claimed that people belonging to Islam have been spending miserable lives in India.

    Khan, the Urban Development Minister of Uttar Pradesh, hit out at Modi-government while commenting on BJP leafer Giriraj Singh's statement during an election rally in Jharkhand.

    Referring to Giriraj Singh's comments, Khan said that the government at centre had asked Muslims, who oppose Modi, to go to neighbouring country Pakitan. However, the government did not specify how Muslims of India should go to Pakistan, added Khan.

    Giriraj Singh, a former minister of Nitish Kumar's government in Bihar, had stoked controversy during an election meeting in Jharkhand's Deoghar district on April 19, saying that those who opposed Narendra Modi should go to Pakistan.

    Three FIRs were lodged against him at Deogarh, Bokaro and Patna for his hate speeches. The Jharkhand High Court had last week granted him bail in the case registered with Bokaro police station.
