TDN World Desk: BJP MLA in Karnataka courted controversy by delivering divisive and discriminatory statement against the minority Muslims in the state.

Speaking at a pro-CAA campaign rally the Karnataka MLA MP Ranukacharya gave communal statement on the mosque- a holy place for the Muslims to offer prayer to God. He said, “There are some antinationals who sit in mosques and give fatwas. Aren’t mosques meant to pray?But instead what you do is to collect weapons, is this what you got a mosque?”

As reported by the quint, this MLA who is also the political advisor of the chief minister, further threatened the Muslims to allocate their funds to the Hindus if they don’t stop protests against CAA.

“IF you continue like this I will also do politics in the taluk. I will give all funds meant for you(Muslims) to our Hindu people. At least they will get development. I will ensure I keep you in a place you deserve.”
