BJP MP Hari Om claims “rising Muslim population responsible for mob lynching”

Hari Om Pandey, Bharatiya Janata Party MP from Uttar Pradesh has made a discriminatory statement, blaming the Muslim community responsible for increasing cases on mob lynching in India. BJP leader Pandey said that it’s of grave concern that the Muslim population is increasing because “that’s the reason for growing incidents of terror and lynching.”

The statement came a day after a BJP lawmaker from same state said Hindus should have at least five children to save Hindutva.

“The main problem in India is because terrorism, crime, mob lynching are increasing and the reason for this is the population of the country. There’s a huge increase in country’s population today compared with the time of independence and the reason for this is one community, that of the Muslims,” said UP leader Hari Om.

Hari Om Pandey further said that soon India will see the creation of another Pakistan due to the rate at which Muslim population is growing. He even said that a bill must be brought in Parliament, applicable to everyone, to control the rising population.
