In yet another inflammatory statement after the terror attack on Amaranth Yatris, a BJP MLA from UP has threatened to disrupt Muslims’ Hajj to Mekka if prevented from reconstructing Ayodhya’s Ram Mandir.

The UP leader Brijbhushan Rajput, in a live video on Facebook, said: “We, 100 crore Hindus, will definitely build a grand Ram Mandir in Ayodhya soon and we shall take a pledge for this. But if Muslims try to block our way, I will stop them from going to Mecca on Hajj.”

He talked about the recent terrorist attack on Amarnath Yatra and went on ranting about Hinduism and Ram Temple in Ayodhya.

He said, “When India gained its independence, Hindus were given India and Muslims had Pakistan. It's (India) a country of Hindus, not of minorities. Muslims often say we belong to this country and no one can ask us to leave. Though we have never asked them to leave, but if we do, they won't be able to stay here,” he said.

He also urged the government of ending the Hajj subsidies by saying, “Government should end Hajj subsidies and reservation granted to Muslims. They are not a minority community but enjoy privileges of being one.”

He said that Mahatma Gandhi had a generous heart and took a moderate decision by allowing Muslims to stay in India.

MLA from Charkhari in Mahoba district, Rajput also said, “Our government listens to people like Owaisi quietly when he speaks against us. We Hindus should chase such 'traitors' away from India.”

Earlier this week, Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raul also commented on the reconstruction of Ram Mandir by saying, "We did not protest for a Ram Mandir with the court’s permission." The Ram Mandir issue has been getting a lot of heat ever since the terror attack on Amarnath Yatris.
