BJP Minority Morcha leader gets expelled for condemning Modi’s hate speech

BJP Minority Morcha leader Usman Ghani, who expressed disappointment with Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s recent Islamophobic remarks in Rajasthan, was today removed from the party positions.

Ghani was the district president of the organisation in Bikaner, Rajasthan.

Narendra Modi, while addressing an election gathering in Rajasthan, has described Muslim minorities in India as “infiltrators” and “those who have more children.”

Ghani condemned PM Modi’s hate speech and said that being a Muslim, he was disappointed at what the Prime Minister said.

He has also said that the BJP was going to lose three-four Lok Sabha seats out of 25 seats in Rajasthan, because of such gestures.

He alleged that when he “goes to Muslims to seek votes” for the BJP, the community people talk about the kind of remarks made by the PM and “look for answers” from him.

The Jat community, according to him, is also unhappy with the BJP in the state and they have voted against the party in Churu and other constituencies.

If the party takes any action against him for what he was saying, “I am not afraid,” Ghani added.

BJP took action against Ghani after his video surfaced on social media, in which he is seen talking to a news channel reporter.

BJP state disciplinary committee chairman Onkar Singh Lakhawat said that an attempt was made by Usman Ghani to “tarnish” the image of the party in the media.

Ghani has been expelled from the party’s primary membership for six years.
