NEW DELHI: An old video of BJP leader Subramanian Swamy expounding his strategy of consolidating the Hindu vote by dividing the Muslims has once again emerged.
Speaking to Rahul Kanwal in Aajtak’s Seedhi Baat programme, the Rajya Sabha MP gave the controversial statement saying:
“India is 80 per cent Hindu. If we rally the Hindu vote and wean away 7 per cent of the Muslim population to our side, we will win the elections,” said Swamy.
In a bone-chilling video, he spoke about the clear strategy to unite the Hindus and divide the Muslims.
“There are sharp divisions in the community. The Shias, Barelvis and Ahmadis are already aligned with the BJP. There’s nothing called a consolidated Muslim vote-bank. Look at the brutal persecution of Shias in Pakistan. The strategy should be clear. Unite the Hindus under one flag and divide the Muslims,” he said.
