Patna/New Delhi: BJP leader Giriraj Singh landed in a fresh controversy today with his remarks that terrorists belong to a particular community and termed it as “naked example of pseudo secularism” when secular leaders remain silent on the issue, drawing sharp retorts from political parties.
Giriraj said,”Since terrorism is a matter relating to the country and not to a community, why secular leaders remain silent when all persons arrested in terrorism cases belong to a particular community.
“Are there only a few to define religious non-discrimination? Is it not true that all the terrorists caught belong to one community?
I am not saying that all the people in that community are terrorists but whoever is caught belongs to the same community,” he said.
Giriraj said this mindset was “posing a danger” to the country.
“This is a naked example of pseudo secularism and patronisation of a community for vote bank politics. This mindset is posing danger to the country,” said the Nawada Lok Sabha candidate of the saffron party.
