Baghpat (UP): Uttar Pradesh Fisheries Minister Sanjay Nishad has demanded the removal of all mosques located near temples. Speaking to reporters here on Wednesday, Nishad said a religious frenzy has spread in India and mosques located near temples should be removed. On the survey of madrassas in the state, Nishad said that the links of madrasas have been found with terrorism and terrorists have been caught there many times. So Muslim religious leaders should support the survey of madrasas to clean their image, he suggested.
He also accused the opposition of spreading religious frenzy and instigating riots by colluding with the Maulanas. Despite this, the incidents of riots have come down since the Yogi Adityanath government in Uttar Pradesh and Narendra Modi came to power at the Centre.
The Nishad Party leader also said that the Maulanas have increased poverty in the country and because of them Muslim children are deprived of education.
Nishad said that Maulana does not want Muslim children to be educated and aware.
