NEW DELHI: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday broke his silence on the incidents that stirred controversies and also said BJP does not support such events. Modi also described opposition plays the Politics of polarization. Modi strongly protested and said the lynching of a man in Dadri and cancellation of a concert by Pakistani singer Ghulam Ali in Mumbai as unfortunate.
This is the first time that Prime Minister Modi has spoken not just about Dadri, but also about the events in Mumbai against Pakistan’s Ghulam Ali and former Pakistan minister Khurshid Mahmud Kasuri. The BJP has always been against fake secularism,” Modi said. “The opposition is playing politics of polarization and they see minorities as vote banks,” PM Modi added.
Dadri’s 50-year-old Akhlaq was dragged out of his home by a 200-strong mob and beaten to death after a public announcement from a local temple that the family had slaughtered a calf and eaten its meat in Uttar Pradesh’s Bishada village.
