The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP Sakshi Maharaj today dubbed as “anti-national” those mourning the death of 1993 Mumbai serial blasts convict Yakub Memon and said that people who have no faith in the Constitution should go to Pakistan.

Lashing out at political leaders who made alast-ditch attempt to save Memon from gallows by approaching the President, the Lok Sabha member from Unnao said they would not have done so if they had lost their own kin in the blasts.

“After all who were they trying to save? They would not have done this if they had lost their own relatives in the blasts,” Sakshi who is often in the news for his communally provocative statements said.

“Sedition charges should be slapped against people sympathising with Yakub Memon and those who have no faith in the Indian Constitution should go to Pakistan,” the BJP MP said.
