Upananda Brahmachari | HENB | Bhubaneswar | Oct 17, 2015:: Controversial BJP MP Sakshi Maharaj on Saturday pitched for a law that provides for death penalty for cow slaughter and defended his party MLAs beating up Sheikh Abdul Rashid in the Jammu and Kashmir assembly as a “natural reaction” to the independent legislator’s action.
“J&K independent MLA’s assault was just a reaction. His action… hurt the masses and he was beaten up,” he said. “Leaders need to change their mindset or get beaten up by the people in full public view,” the BJP MP from Unnao in Uttar Pradesh said addressing an event organised by International Hindu Mahasangha. International Hindu Mahasangha is an premier Hindu unit established by H.H. Jagadguru Sankaracharya Swami Nischalananda Saraswati Maharaja, Govardhan Peetha, Puri, Odisha, taking other two Shankara pontiffs Shrimad Swami Bharati Tirtha of Sringeri Mutt and Srimad Swami Swaroopananda Saraswati of Dwaraka Mutt.
Sakshi Maharaj also came out on Saturday in support of Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar for his beef remark. While speaking at a meeting organised by International Hindu Mahasangha in Bhubaneswar, the Unnao MP said there was nothing wrong in Khattar’s statement. Strongly advocating protection of cows, the BJP MP said, “A strong law of should be put in place to hang people responsible for cow slaughter.”
The Haryana CM was at the receiving end for his statement that “Muslims should quit beef eating.”
Justifying the assault on MLA Engineer Rashid inside the Jammu & Kashmir assembly earlier this month for his beef party, BJP MP Sakshi Maharaj said, ‘politicians hurting religious sentiments will get assaulted in public places’.
“Yug badal raha hai. Iss desh ke neta ko badalna padega. Nehin to chaurahain pe pitna padega. Ek neta J&K mein pita ki nehin? (Time is changing. Leaders have to change their mind-set. Otherwise, they will get beaten up in public places. Didn’t a neta get beaten up in J&K?” he said while addressing a public meeting here. The meeting, ‘Hinduism in danger,’ was organized by a Hindu outfit and attended by many BJP and Hindu religious leaders.
Talking to reporters after the meeting, the Lok Sabha member from Unnao said, “Everybody is talking about what happened to the assaulted MLA (Engineer), but nobody wants to see what drama he had enacted. If he wanted to eat beef, he could have done so behind the curtains, in a closed room. Why did he throw a beef party? It did hurt the sentiments. The one who got provoked is a true son of Bharat mata,” he said.
Stating that each action has an equal and opposite reaction, Sakshi said, “It is a law of nature — Jaisa action, waisa reaction.”
Specifically speaking on terrorism and its link with Islam, Sakshi said, “I have never said all Muslims are terrorists. However, all terrorists who have been apprehended are Muslims.”
Strongly stating that there should be complete ban on cow slaughter, the lawmaker said, “Even many Muslim leaders have supported ban on killing cow. Quran doesn’t say Muslims should eat beef. I would say nobody should eat meat, let alone beef.”
Speaking on conversion controversy, Sakshi Maharaj said, “the country should have a strong anti-conversion law with provision of death sentence for those involved in forcible conversion.”
On the Ram temple issue, Sakshi Maharaj said the temple would be built during the tenure of the Narendra Modi government.
“It may not be today or tomorrow, Sri Ram Mandir will certainly be built during Modi government’s tenure. We have completed just one year in office, four more years are to go,” he said.
On recent incidents of many writers returning their awards over the lynching of a man in Dadri over rumour of eating beef, the saffron-clad MP said, “Probably they were those who did not deserve the awards. Where were they when ‘Operation Blue Star’ happened — when thousands of Sikhs were lynched?” he asked.
Earlier Sakshi Maharaj urged a ‘strong enforcement of family planning upon Muslims’ and ‘at least five children per Hindu family’ to maintain the demographic balance in India.
