Ruling Bharatiya Janta Party (BJP) senior parliamentary member of the Rajya Sabha (Upper House of the Indian Parliament) Subramanian Swamy on Sunday stated that India should invade Bangladesh and take over it if the torture over Hindus is not stopped, The Dhaka Tribune reported.
While speaking to reporters at Agartala, the capital city of the northeast Indian state of Tripura, Swamy said: “India will continue to support it [Bangladesh], but its Prime Minister Shiekh Hasina should be warned to stop those ‘mad’ people from demolishing Hindu temples, converting Hindu temples into mosques and converting Hindus to Muslims. If Bangladesh authorities do not stop torturing on Hindus, I would recommend that our government [India] invades Bangladesh.”
Swamy also said that Pakistan is run by the military, ISI and terrorists and called Imran Khan a peon [office boy who runs errands].
While speaking on Pakistan, he said, “Imran Khan is nothing but a ‘chaprasi [peon]’ because the country (Pakistan) is run by the military, ISI and terrorists, and Imran Khan is just one of the ‘chaprasi’ of the government. He may be called the prime minister, but in actuality, he is a ‘chaprasi’.”
“There is only one solution to Pakistan. Balochis don’t want to be part of Pakistan. Sindhis don’t want to be part of Pakistan. Pashtuns don’t want to be part of Pakistan, so break Pakistan into four parts – these three (Baloch, Sindh, Pashtun) and the residual West Punjab,” he stated.
Swamy had first recommended invading Bangladesh in 2012.
“Bangladesh was created for muslims on the premise that they cannot live with Hindus. But since Muslims from Bangladesh have entered into India and living with Hindus then the reason for the existence of a separate Muslim country doesn’t exist,” he had said. “So, Bangladesh should return land in proportion to the Muslims that have immigrated into India. 1/3rd of Bangladesh. Or, Invade bangladesh to occupy that land.”
