New Delhi: Bhartiya Janta Party MLA from Indore, Usha Thakur, in a controversial statement on Tuesday said that an individual becomes a terrorist, traitor or naxalite because of his mother’s negligence.
She was speaking at an event organised on the occasion of International Women’s Day in Indore.
“Mother is responsible for upbringing of her child. If she fails to nurture patriotic values in his heart then she is to blame. If an individual becomes a terrorist, traitor, or Maoist, his mother should be held responsible,” she said.
“Kanhaiya Kumar raised anti-national slogans because his mother failed to teach him about patriotism,” she added.
Usha Thakur has made several controversial statements in past.
Earlier, she courted a controversy by saying Muslims should sacrifice their sons instead of goats on Eid-ul-Adha.
“Muslims were supposed to sacrifice their sons but the son changed into a goat. So Muslims should sacrifice their sons instead of killing innocent animals,” she had said.
