In a video posted on Facebook, Rajya Sabha MP Amar Singh has dubbed Akhilesh Yadav’s party as ‘Namajwadi Party’ and has threatened to expose the “secular credentials” of the party before the public. Singh’s video came in response to Samajwadi Party’s Azam Khan alleged threat of cutting Singh into pieces and throwing acid on the faces of his daughters.
“He should be ashamed of talking of building Vishnu temple. He is not president of Samajwadi Party but Namajwadi Party. I saved dignity of many women and girls in the Yadav clan and now Azam Khan threatens to cut me into pieces and shower acid on my daughters. I will expose them all,” Singh said in the video.
“If secularism means to compromise my self-respect and being ashamed of own religion then I would prefer to be called a non-secular person. I will unmask Samajwadi Party’s secular face in the country,” he added.
अगर धर्मनिरपेक्षता का मतलब अपने स्वाभिमान से समझौता कर हिंदू होने पर शर्म करना है तो ऐसी धर्मनिरपेक्षता नमाजवादी पार्टी को मुबारक, आज़म खान और उनकी पार्टी की असलियत पूरे प्रदेश तक पहुँचा उनकी नींव हिला कर ना रख दी तो मेरा नाम अमर सिंह नहीं।
