FARRUKHABAD: Firebrand BJP MP Sakshi Maharaj has termed India as the safest country for Muslims, saying that no communal riots had taken place since the NDA government came to power.

He also claimed that 32 lakh Muslims have become members of his party.            

The BJP leader, known for making controversial statements, said Muslims of the country have given their assent on the views of leaders like Jamiat Ulema-e-Hind chief Maulana Mahmood Madni that India is the safest country for them in the world.     

Maharaj said it was a fact that no communal riot has taken place anywhere in the country under the Narendra Modi government.         

"Some people use communal riots as a tool for vote bank politics and so a canard is being spread in the name of intolerance by certain people," he said terming it as a planned conspiracy against the central government.             

"Almost 32 lakh Muslims have taken membership of BJP," he told reporters yesterday.              

The MP from Unnao said it is because of the clear and strong policies of the central government that Pakistan has agreed to have unconditional talks.        

To a question, he said BJP will contest the 2017 Assembly elections by projecting a face as there is no dearth of leaders in the party.
