Taking exception to VHP patron Ashok Singhal’s controversial ‘Hindu nation’ remark, Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) chief Lalu Prasad Yadav on Sunday said such people want to communalize the nation and should be booked under sedition charges.
“Don’t take notice of such people, they want to communalize the nation, they should be booked under sedition charges,” Lalu told media persons here.
Singhal sparked another controversy on Saturday by saying that India would be a ‘Hindu’ nation by 2020.
“I was at the Sai Baba Ashram where Sai Baba told me by 2020 the entire country will be Hindu and 2030 the entire world will be Hindu. I feel that revolution has started,” he said at a function in the national capital.
He also said the Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led NDA Government has put an end to 800 years of ‘slavery’.
