BJP's youth wing slams Hamid Ansari for 'insecurity among Muslims' remark

Mumbai: Attacking former vice-president Hamid Ansari over his remark that there was a sense of insecurity among Muslims, the youth wing of BJP on Friday sought his apology.

"It is extremely unfortunate that Ansari has made such a remark on the last day of his office, which reflects his narrow-mindedness," Mumbai unit chief of the Bharatiya Yuva Morcha (BJYM), Mohit Kamboj, said.

Ansari, whose second five-year term as the vice president ended on Thursday, had said in an interview that there is a feeling of unease and a sense of insecurity among Muslims in the country, claiming that the "ambience of acceptance" is now under threat.

Reminding Ansari that all the three superstars of the Indian film industry are Muslims, Kamboj said, "Ansari must know that there are 57 Muslims countries in the world, and only Indian government gives subsidy to the Haj pilgrims."

"Pakistani leaders must be happy with Ansari's remarks as he said the same thing which they (Pak leaders) and heads of terror outfits have been alleging against India," he said seeking an apology from Ansari.
