In his speech on April 25, Khan had allegedly referred to Kargil war and raised religious slogans. Khan had allegedly said, "During Kargil war, Indian soldiers comprising both Hindus and Muslims defeated Pakistanis. The Indian soldiers shouted 'Naara-e- Takbeer Allahu Akbar' slogan to fool the Pakistanis, who mistook them for their own soldiers and came out of their cover. After this Indian soldiers easily defeated them."

So far Khan has been mentioned in 12 cases of alleged violations in Uttar Pradesh. Earlier he kicked up a storm by making sexist comments against his opposition and BJP candidate Jaya Prada. He said, "You got represented by her (Jaya Prada) for 10 years. People of Rampur, people of Uttar Pradesh and people of India, it took you 17 years to understand her reality. But I could recognise it in 17 days that she wears a khaki underw***r." 

Azam Khan contested in Rampur against BJP's Jaya Prada. Polling for this constituency was held on April 18.
