New Delhi, April 29, 2020-

BJP leader Syed Shahnawaz Hussain has hit back at Delhi Minority Commission Chairman Zafarul-Islam Khan, demanding an investigation against him after he created a row by “thanking” Kuwait for its “support” to Indian Muslims against what he called “Hindutva bigots”.

Stressing on Khan’s alleged political affiliation to the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), the BJP leader and former Union minister said, “I condemn the language used by the Aam Aadmi Party leader; there should be a probe against him.”

Calling it a “big crime”, Hussain alleged, “‘Aaj kal kuchh log theka le rakhha hai ke unhone Bharat ko badnam hi karna hai (few people have now taken upon themselves to defame India).”

Hitting back at the statement of the Delhi Minority Commission chief, Hussain said, “No nation has the right to intervene in India’s internal matters, even if that is an Arab nation. Because worldwide, the largest Muslim population lives in India after Indonesia. And for them, there can not be a better nation than India to live in and a better leader than (Narendra) Modi.”

Hussain said Prime Minister Narendra Modi doesn’t discriminate among the people. Yet, India is being defamed based on few incidents and no country has the right to intervene in India’s internal matters.

Meanwhile, another BJP leader, Shazia Ilmi, has also demanded Khan’s resignation. “This bigot must resign immediately,” she said.

In a social media post on Tuesday, Khan had said, “Thank you Kuwait for standing with the Indian Muslims! The Hindutva bigots calculated that given the huge economic stakes involved, the Muslim and Arab world will not care about the persecution of Muslims in India.”

Khan further said, “The bigots forgot that Indian Muslims enjoy huge goodwill in the eyes of the Arab and Muslim world for their services over centuries to Islamic causes, excellence in Islamic and Arabic scholarship, and cultural and civilisational gifts to world heritage.”  (Agency)
