Controversial former VP Ansari says Sardar Patel was as guilty as Jinnah in the conspiracy to partition India

He triggered controversy by claiming that people like to believe that Pakistani or the British are responsible for the partition, no one wants to admit that India/Indians are equally responsible for the same.

Controversial former Vice-President Hamid Ansari, while releasing the Urdu and Hindi translations of journalist Saeed Naqvi’s book “Being the Other: The Muslim in India”, at the Dy. Speaker’s Hall Annexe in the Constitution Club of India sparked a fresh controversy by blaming India and Indians for the partition of India, secluding Indian Muslims.

Brandishing his Muslim bias, Hamid Ansari speaking at the event said, that Sardar Patel is ‘Just as guilty as Pakistan’s Founder Mohammad Ali Jinnah in the conspiracy to partition India’.

He triggered controversy by furthering that while people like to believe that people across the border (Pakistani) or the British are responsible for India’s partition, no one wants to admit that India/Indians are equally responsible for the same.

Referring to Sardar Patel’s speech delivered in Delhi, four days prior to India’s Independence, on 11th August 1947, Ansari said that Sardar Patel had said that “he took these extreme steps after great deliberation”. According to Ansari, Sardar Patel had further said that “despite his previous opposition to partition, he was convinced that to keep India united it must be divided”.

Recently the former Vice-President, known for his controversial statements, faced another predicament by backing the idea of setting up of the Shariat courts in every district of the country. His bizarre justification came days after the All India Muslim Personal Law Board demanded Sharia Courts in every district of India.

Hamid Ansari had earlier too sparked controversy when in May 2018, he issued a ‘statement of support’ for the students of Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) on the issue of Jinnah’s portrait in the campus.

Hamid Ansari not new to controversies had earlier issued a statement saying he is feeling insecure and uneasy as a citizen of the country. His statements were condemned by all sections of the society. Recently, post his retirement, he was seen in a programme organized militant Islamic organization Popular Front of India (PFI) which has been accused by the National Investigative Agency (NIA) of being involved in the controversial ‘love jihad’ cases in Kerala.
