A Bhartiya Janta Party leader and member of legislative assembly from Madhya Pradesh, Rameshwar Sharma, has kicked-off a fresh controversy by saying that Muslims should taste cow urine and sing Vande Mataram, if they want to enter Garba festival.

He made the statement at a meeting with Hindu Utsav Samiti in Bhopal, Zee News reported.

He also added that the Muslims who want to enter the venue should be accompanied by their female family members as it will ensure they will conduct themselves well and not eye Hindu girls, the report added.

Earlier, another BJP MLA from the state, Usha Thakur had told reporters that organisers of ‘garba’ should only allow Hindu youths to enter the pandals and that too on production of their voter identity cards.

Congress has condemned the controversial remarks made by the BJP leaders.

The Kashmir Walla needs you, urgently. Only you can do it.

We have always come to you for help: The Kashmir Walla is battling at multiple fronts — and if you don’t act now, it would be too late. 2020 was a year like no other and we walked into it already battered. The freedom of the press in Kashmir was touching new lows as the entire population was gradually coming out of one of the longest communication blackouts in the world.

We are not a big organization. A few thousand rupees from each one of you would make a huge difference.

The Kashmir Walla plans to extensively and honestly cover — break, report, and analyze — everything that matters to you. You can help us.
