Muslims should “bow to Indian culture”; Ram, Krishna, Shiva were their ancestors: UP minister


Uttar Pradesh Minister Anand Swaroop Shukla said Lord Ram, Krishna and Shiva were the ancestors of Indian Muslims and that they should “bow down to the land and culture of India”.

In provocative remarks in UP’s Ballia, the Minister of State for Parliamentary Affairs also said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh Yogi Adityanath had “raised the flag of Hindutva and Indian culture ”and had overcome the mindset that“ intended to create an Islamic state. “.

“The ancestors of the Muslims of India are Lord Ram, Krishna and Shankar (Shiva). They don’t need to see the land of the Kaaba. These people should bow their heads to the land and culture of India, ”said Shukla, reporting on the work of the Adityanath government over the past four and a half years.

Referring to the controversial posters put up recently in Sambhal, Shukla said they were the result of the Samajwadi party’s “support for Islamic terrorists” and his deputy Shaifur Rehman Barq’s declaration “supporting the Taliban”.

Posters labeling Sambhal as the land of “ghazis,” an apparent reference to Islamic warriors, had appeared ahead of AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi’s meeting earlier this week.

The BJP strongly opposed the posters, after which they were taken down by workers of the All-India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM).

Shukla said the ghazis have been completely eradicated from Uttar Pradesh. Such powers will not be able to lift their heads in the future, he said.

Attacking Owaisi, Shukla said his ancestors wanted to make Hyderabad a separate nation but could not be successful.
