New Delhi(ANI): Condemning the remarks of the Shiv Sena and Hindu Mahasabha leader Sadhvi Deva Thakur, Congress leader Abhishek Manu Singhvi has questioned the silence of the BJP-led government at the Centre over their utterances.
“In 1day, Sadhvi says there be compulsory sterilisation of minorities & saamna says Muslims be disenfranchised. Do these ppl deserve india?” Singhvi said on Twitter.
“why Hv such divisive communal inflammatory comments increased in 1 yr? Why only silence or Genl Denial bt no concrete action by Modi/bjp,” he added.
Singhvi further said that their ilk diminished the idea of India through such an approach.
“do such ppl ustand the idea of india, our proud demo, tht v r not a talibanised nation, tht they diminish india daily by this approach!,” he said.
The Shiv Sena had earlier drawn flak for demanding that voting rights of Muslims should be revoked as the community has often been used to play vote bank politics.
Sadhvi Deva Thakur also came under sharp criticism for advocating forced sterilizations for Muslims and Christians, who she claimed were posing a threat to Hindus in the country.
