Mind your language or will make you pay the price Azam: BJP threatens leader

Patna: Will teach you a lesson for Bajrang Ali remark threatened BJP Begusarai nominee Giriraj Singh yesterday after SP party leader Azam Khan made the remark.

Mind your language or we will make you pay a heavy price for derogatory comments the party said reminding him of how others suffered after they had made derogatory comments against the saffron party.

“Azam Khan first insulted PM Narendra Modi and now he is insulting our God. Let me be done with elections in Begusarai, then I will come to Rampur and tell who Bajrang Bali actually is,” Giriraj tweeted.

BJP’s national spokesperson Shahnawaz Hussain alleged Azam using such language indicates he intends to create communal tension.

Hussain added: “Today is Ram Navami. We are extending greetings to each other and Azam Khan is calling Bajrang Bali, Bajrang Ali; what kind of language is this? I would also like to ask why Jamiat Ulema-e-Hind or Darul Uloom Deoband, which keep saying on every issue, are keeping mum on this issue.”

Responding to Yogi Adityanath’s statement where he made communal remark ongoing LS elections stating it as a contest between ‘Ali’ and Bajrangbali, SP leader Azam Khan while addressing a public meeting in Rampur said “in place of Ali and Bajrangbali, it should be Bajrang Ali”.

“Bajrang Ali todd day dushman ki nali (Bajrang Ali will destroy our enemies’ bones),” he said.

“Agar Congress, SP, BSP ko ‘Ali’ par vishwaas hai toh humein bhi ‘Bajrang Bali’ par vishwaas hai (If the Congress, Samajwadi Party and Bahujan Samaj Party have faith in Ali, we have also faith in Bajrang Bali),” the UP CM had said at Meerut on April 9.

The UP CMs remark was noted and the Election Commission of India has also issued a show-cause notice to Adityanath on April 11 for the violation of mode of conduct.

Reacting to Yogi’s comment, BSP chief Mayawati too took to Twitter and said it was “unfortunate” that people were creating hatred between communities for narrow political gains.
