Ballia: A BJP MLA has made a highly controversial and communal statement in Uttar Pradesh’s Ballia. BJP MLA from Bairia, Surendra Singh, said the 2019 Lok Sabha elections would be about choosing between Islam and Bhagwan (god). He also called the oppositions parties anti-national.

The 2019 Lok Sabha elections would be fought on the lines of “Islam versus Bhagwan” and “Pakistan versus India”, BJP UP MLA Surendra Singh has said, days after he defended his colleague accused of raping a teenage girl.

The saffron party legislator from Bairia had on Wednesday has drawn flak from all quarters after he came out in support of BJP MLA from Unnao Kuldeep Singh Sengar, who is facing rape charges. Singh made a bizarre statement while defending Sengar. He said no one can rape a mother of three children.

“Tell me who will rape a mother of three? He is being falsely implicated,” he had told reporters on the sidelines of an event.

Last night during a public meeting here, Singh said, “The 2019 poll is going to be on the lines of Pakistan versus Bharat… Islam versus Bhagwan and so the respected people of the country you have to decide whether it will be Islam which will win or Bhagwan.”

“(You have to) decide if it is the dishonesty that will be victorious or (Narendra) Modi’s sincerity,” he said.

The lawmaker said that this time if the BJP won the people of the country would rejoice and if the opposition managed to make its government, drums and trumpets would be played in Pakistan.

“People have to decide if they are with Bhagwan or Islam,” Singh said.

“It will be Bharat ‘bhakti’ will take on ‘vibhakti’ (divisive forces),” he said.

Singh had earlier said that once India becomes a “Hindu rashtra” only those Muslims would stay in the country who assimilate into the Hindu culture.

“There are a very few Muslims who are patriotic. Once India becomes a Hindu ‘Rashtra’ (Hindu nation), Muslims who assimilate into our culture will stay in India. Those who will not, are free to take asylum in any other country,” he had said.
