The BJP leaders statement comes amid the controversy over a portrait of the Pakistan founder at the Aligarh Muslim University.

“Since ancient times, this country has been known as Akhand Bharat (undivided India). Today, the Jinnah episoide, which has come up before the country, has inflicted pain on the people of the country.

“Jinnah has worked to destroy the country and at the time of Partition people from different sections of the society be it Hindus, Muslims, Sikhs or Christians suffered heavy losses,” said Pandey, who was attending the Bhagwan Parshuram Jayanti in Atrauli.
