'Send Muslims to Europe, US not Pakistan', says Azam Khan to Shia Waqf Board Chief
Reacting to UP Shia Waqf Board Chairman Waseem Rizvi remark, Senior Samajwadi Party leader and former Uttar Pradesh minister Azam Khan said that send muslims to to Europe, America but not to Pakistan which don't even have bread.
Speaking to media, Azam Khan said,''Why do they want to send Muslims to countries that don't even have bread.''
The firebrand Samajwadi Party added that if they want to send Muslims out of India, they should send them to a 'wealthier' Europe or the US.
"Bhejna hai to un deshon mein kyo bhejte ho jahan roti nahi hai. Desh ke badshah aisa chahte hain to Europe bheje, America ke tanashah se bhi achi dosti hai unki. Par total migration hona chahiye," he said.
Earlier, Uttar Pradesh Shia Waqf Board Chairman Waseem Rizvi has suggested that Muslims who are against building Ram temple in Ayodhya "must go to Pakistan and Bangladesh".
Rizvi had said, "Those who are opposing the Ram temple in Ayodhya and want to build the Babri Mosque there... People having such fundamentalist mentality should go to Pakistan and Bangladesh. Such Muslims do not have any place in India."
Meanwhile, Shia clerics demanded his arrest for trying to communalise the atmosphere. President of Shia Ulema Council Maulana Iftekhar Hussain Inquilabi alleged, "Rizvi is a criminal involved in grabbing and illegal selling of Waqf properties."
The Supreme Court is scheduled to hear the Babri Masjid- Ram Janmabhoomi dispute from February 8.
