    Muslims should be cremated, there's no space to bury 20 cr people: BJP MP Sakshi Maharaj

    New Delhi: Sakshi Maharaj, who is known for making making inflammatory remarks, has courted a controversy as he remarked that a law should be enforced to stop the construction of graveyard and that Muslims should be cremated since there is not enough land for graveyards.

    "Whether it is named Kabristaan (graveyard) or Shamshaan (crematoriums), nobody needs to be buried. There are 2-2.5 crore Hindu saints in this country who should have a memorial after their death. That will require land. There are 20 crore Muslims, all of them need a grave. Where is the land in Hindustan?" he said while addressing a public rally in Unnao on Monday.

    Reacting to the BJP MP's remark, the Congress Party on Tuesday said Sakshi Maharaj's controversial 'Kabristaan' remark is part of a communal atmosphere being created by the saffron party amid the ongoing assembly elections in politically crucial Uttar Pradesh.

    "Every religion follows its own ritual. If there will be need of 'kabristaan' then it will be constructed. Similarly, if there would be need of 'shamshaan' then it would be made. This cannot be affected by provocative statements of any leader or saint," Congress leader Sandeep Dikshit said.

    Echoing similar views, Samajwadi Party leader Naresh Agarwal said Sakshi Maharaj's statement aims at spreading communalism and widening the gap between Hindus and Muslims.

    "This shows the BJP's disappointment. They don't have any issue to discuss," Agarwal said.

    Earlier this month, Prime Minister Modi while addressing elections rally in Fatehpur raised the issue of Kabristaan and Shamshaan, saying that there should not be any discrimination in the allotment of land for both.

    "If you create Kabristaan in a village, then a 'Shamshaan' should also be created. If there is uninterrupted electricity in Ramzan, it should also be given during Diwali. There should be no discrimination," PM Modi had said.

    Makes sense. With ever growing population in India, there hardly any land left for the living ... India cannot afford to have any graveyards.

    This dude smokes too much hash and those who support him have their brains in their bowels. Better to donate your body for research or give it for composting rather than taking along with you a couple of trees worth wood to generate even more co2 and particulates .

    Those graveyards aren't permanent resting places .Most of them are re used .At least out here in Bombay , they are.

    Guy is a stupid moron. If it's upto him he will use all the funds to make only temples and shamshans in India. A couple of years back he asked Hindu to produce at least 10 babies per family.

    Actually, what is needed is simply to make religion less relevant in the lives of people. We pay too much heed to it. Sometimes back some mullah was harping about vaccines being used to control muslim population and now this. About time we stop listening to these morons and they will shut up.
