MUZAFFARNAGAR: BJP MLA Vikram Saini, who is known for making controversial statements, has claimed that India is a country for the Hindus as it is known as 'Hindustan'.

Khatauli MLA Saini made the statement at an event held here on Monday.

He said that some "irresponsible leaders" had allowed some Muslims to live in India.

"During partition, due to them (Muslims), the Hindus are facing problem in the country. If they (Muslims) had not stopped in India, property of crores would be of the Hindus," Saini claimed.

When asked to comment on his statement, Saini refused to reply, saying he was busy.

Last year, Saini had threatened to break the limbs of those who kill and disrespect cows, sparking a controversy.
