Muslims leading miserable lives in India: Azam Khan
Lucknow: In a remark that could spark a controversy, Uttar Pradesh Urban Development Minister Azam Khan has said that Muslims across India are leading miserable lives.
Hitting out at Narendra Modi-government, the Samajwadi Party leader has been quoted as saying by a news website that the ruler of the country does not want Muslims to progress.
The minister further referred to a controversial remark made by Giriraj Singh, a BJP leader from Bihar, at an election rally in Jharkhand and said the government was formed by telling the Muslims opposed to Narendra Modi to go to Pakistan. But the government did not specify how should they go, he added.
More details are awaited.
