BJP has given a ‘show cause’ notice to Thakur
Madhubani (Bihar) – Muslims work on a policy. According to their policy, they wish to make India an Islamic nation. During the partition of India, Muslims were given a different country. Hence, they should go to Pakistan. If they desire to live in India then they will have to accept secondary citizenship. We request the Government to withdraw voting rights given to Muslims, stated BJP MLA Haribhushan Thakur in BSF Constituency. After having made this statement, BJP has sent a ‘Show cause’ notice to Thakur asking for an explanation of his statement.
