Stirring up to the ongoing debate over the Ayodhya dispute, BJP MP Vinay Katiyar has allegedly said Jama Masjid was known as Jamuna Devi Temple.
Following this, All India Imam Federation President has slammed the saying as they are paling politics of hatred and spreading terror in the country.
While reacting to the saying, Imam Sajid Rashidi, President of the All India Imam Federation said, “This is true that these people want to do politics of hatred and spread terror in the country. They want to take the country towards Hindu Rashtra. This country cannot become Hindu Rashtra because it is multi-cultured”.
It was reported that this is not the first time when BJP MP Vinay Katiyar has made this remark, earlier also he claimed that the Taj Mahal was Lord Shiva’s temple called ‘Tejo Mahal’ which was later converted into a mausoleum by Shahjahan.
