New Delhi, Nov.18 : Justifying his controversial tweets on underworld don Chhota Rajan and United Liberation Front of Asom (ULFA) militant and leader Anup Chetia, Congress leader Shakeel Ahmad on Wednesday stressed that if the two ‘criminals’ had been Muslims, then the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) would have trained their guns at the UPA citing ‘vote bank politics’.
“I have said that two anti-social people or criminals, Chhota Rajan and Anup Chetia, have been brought to India and that they are not Muslims by coincidence. If they were Muslims, the Narendra Modi-led Government at the Centre would have accused the Congress Party for playing vote bank politics,” Ahmad told ANI.
He insisted that it is also true that Chhota Rajan has been arrested by the Indonesian Police and Anup Chetia had been rotting in the jails of Bangladesh for many years.
“That’s why I said that narrative would have been totally different if these two were Muslims,” he added.
“Thankfully Chhota Rajan&Anup Chetia(ULFA) are not Muslims. Had they been Muslims Modi govt would have a different narrative altogether,” Ahmad had said in an earlier tweet which sparked outrage across the BJP. (ANI)
