Launching a scathing attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Samajwadi Party leader Azam Khan on Monday said Muslims are being troubled in India. Khan also warned PM Modi that he should be ready to face the consequences if the community is harassed.

“Muslims are being harassed in India and if the community approached the United Nations and narrated their ordeal, then Modi will not be able to show his face anywhere. Stop it otherwise be ready to face the consequences, he told reporters here.

“Muslims follow the holy Quran and will continue to obey it till their last breath, whereas the prime minister is neither aware of Islam nor Hinduism,” Khan said.

He also lashed out at Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, saying there is a big difference between his statements and actions.

Khan said Yogi Adityanath talks about acting against illegal land possession and encroachments but he has not acted against a minister in his government who has carried out “unauthorised construction” worth crores of rupees of his house.
