Uttar Pradesh Minister Azam Khan, who is known for inciting communal passion, has decided to raise the Dadri lynching and ‘Beef Ban’ issue at the United Nations. “The BJP, RSS and Hindu groups are trying to convert India into a Hindu Rashtra. They are planning genocide of Muslims. I will take up the issue to the UN so that the world knows about what is going on in India,” he said.
Azam Khan’s comments came despite the fact that the incident occurred in Uttar Pradesh – a state governed by his own party. Law and order remains a state subject. Instead of trying to restore normalcy and maintain peace and harmony, Azam Khan is going to bring disrepute to India through his statements/acts.
