Ready to be hanged if I said something wrong, says Sakshi Maharaj

Unnao MP Sakshi Maharaj, whose recent remarks have sparked off a lot of controversy, on Thursday said he was ready to be hanged if he had said something wrong.



New Delhi: Unnao MP Sakshi Maharaj, whose recent remarks have sparked off a lot of controversy, on Thursday said he was ready to be hanged if he had said something wrong.

"I think the media is stretching the issue a bit too long. I have already spoken on this issue several times. Now, it is time to forget it. The place where I spoke was not a political stage. If people are so hurt by my statement, then a strict law should be brought against a family that has more than two or three children. If people think I said something wrong, I am ready to be hanged for that," he said, in an interview to ANI.

"However, there should be equal law for all. When we say good things then the media never shows anything. Narendra Modi is mine and I am his. I am a soldier of the BJP," he added.

Addressing a gathering on the occasion of Sant Samaagam Mahotsava in Meerut earlier on Tuesday, Sakshi Maharaj had said the concept of four wives and 40 children will not work in India and added that the time has come when a Hindu woman must produce at least four children in order to protect Hindu religion.

The BJP MP, who was earlier at the centre of a controversy when he described Father of the Nation Mahatma Gandhi's assassin Nathuram Godse as a 'patriot', emphasised that it is necessary for Hindus to increase their progeny to protect the religion.
