Azam Khan says Muslims are paying the price of not joining Pakistan after the partition

Azam Khan is currently facing trouble as the Uttar Pradesh government is contemplating to declare him a land mafia after as many as 13 cases of land grabbing were reported against him.

Samajwadi Party leader Azam Khan, who recently won the Rampur Lok Sabha seat, has stated that the ‘mob lynching’ incidents are the ‘punishment Muslims are getting for 1947’. Speaking to ANI, the Rampur MP stated, “Muslims will face it whatever it maybe”.

Khan had reportedly made this statement after the incident in Bihar where 3 cattle thieves were beaten to death by villagers yesterday. The thieves had allegedly entered the village of Baniyapur in the dead of night with a pick-up van and had already stolen some goats. They were spotted by villagers when they were trying to steal a buffalo. One of the cattles thieves was a Muslim man named Naushad Qureshi while two others were Hindus.

He further added, “Why did not our ancestors go to Pakistan? Ask this to Nehru, Maulana Azad, Sardar Patel and Bapu. They had made promises to Muslims”.

Azam Khan, in his statement, has claimed that the ‘mob lynching’ incidents are Muslims getting punished for not going to Pakistan in 1947. Khan, however, did not mention anything about scores of Hindus who have been killed by Muslim mobs in the country. He also did not mention the fake claims of being made to chant ‘Jai Shri Ram’ that have been made by many Muslims in recent days.

It is notable here that Azam Khan is currently facing trouble as the Uttar Pradesh government is contemplating to declare him a land mafia after as many as 13 cases of land grabbing were reported against him.

Khan has allegedly grabbed lands from farmers using forged documents for the construction of the Mohammad Ali Jauhar University in Rampur. The multi-million university is run by  Azam Khan’s trust.

26 farmers in the area had also alleged that they were forcefully detained and pressurised by Khan to sign forged deals selling thousands of hectares of land for Khan’s trust. When they declined, Khan allegedly used force to grab the lands from them unlawfully.

The Mohammad Ali Jauhar University was established in 2006 under the SP government where Khan was a minister. Even a Congress leader Faisal Khan had alleged that Azam Khan calls himself a Muslim but he had forcefully grabbed the lands of Muslim farmers. The university itself was allegedly constructed by using government funds worth Rs 3000 crores.

It may be noted that in March this year the UP government had also demolished the Urdu Gate built by Azam Khan in the Jauhar Ali University road in Rampur. No permission was taken to build the gate, and it was causing a diversion of traffic in the area.

Khan has always managed to remain in the news by his controversial remarks. He had used misogynist and sexually targetted remarks against his political opponent Jaya Prada during the Lok Sabha elections. He had made objectionable statements against Ambedkar too, in the past.
