After the Uttar Pradesh government directed all madrassas to hold Independence Day celebrations and videograph the event, the Bharatiya Janata Party’s Vinay Katiyar on Friday said that the people who do not agree with it should be categorised as “deshdrohi (traitor).”
Katiyar welcomed the move made by Yogi Addityanath led government to pay tribute to freedom fighters and organise cultural programmes on August 15.
“He (Adityanath) has said the right thing. It is our pride and we should hoist it. Be it any school, madrassa or any other organisation for that matter, national anthem should be sung and national flag be hoisted and people who do not agree with it should be categorised as ‘deshdrohi’,” he added.
