Partition imposed on minorities of Pakistan, temples, churches, gurdwaras vandalised: Here is what Modi said

"They had also kept the issue of Jharkhand's creation pending for five decades. It was the Atal Bihari Vajpayee-led government that created Jharkhand," he said.

Launching a blistering attack on the Congress party, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday said the party failed to act on the issue of persecuted minorities in the neighbouring countries. He also blamed the party for misleading these minorities by making false promises to them in the past.

Speaking at an election rally in Dhanbad, Prime Minister Modi said that Congress governments in the past treated these refugees in a manner similar to the present condition in which they currently live in Pakistan.

He asked the public not to be misled by the Congress, which he said had promised relief to persecuted minority refugees but had never done anything for them.

“Congress leaders had promised citizenship to displaced people of Pakistan and Bangladesh. India was divided in 1947 and in 1971, Bangladesh was created. Those most affected were minority people living in those countries. The partition was imposed on the minorities to Hindu, Sikhs, Parsis, Jain, Christians living there for generations,” he added.

Targetting the Congress party for the partition of the country, PM Modi said that the minorities in these countries faced inhuman behaviour, especially the women, who subjected to different forms of exploitation after they were forced to accept partition and settle in these countries following the partition of India.

“The temples, churches, gurdwaras were vandalised. The minorities were living in different parts of the country for decades. Congress made hollow promises to them. It was the BJP which fulfilled the promise,” he added.

On Thursday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi also accused opposition parties, especially Congress of spreading “lies” regarding the CAB, which grants citizenship to persecuted minorities in Pakistan, Bangladesh and Afghanistan.

He also accused the Congress and the Opposition of trying “to set fire” to the Northeast, which has seen protests since the bill was passed in the Parliament.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi also said the Congress had always avoided taking decisions on matters of national interest. “The Congress had deliberately kept the Ram Janmabhoomi dispute hanging for decades. Matters of national interest are secondary for them,” he said.

“They had also kept the issue of Jharkhand’s creation pending for five decades. It was the Atal Bihari Vajpayee-led government that created Jharkhand,” he said.

Further, PM Modi also said the BJP scrapped Article 370 and implemented Indian laws and the Constitution in Jammu and Kashmir. He also said that his government framed laws for Triple Talaq, which helps not only Muslim women but also the men.
