We won't allow division of religion: Amit Shah

BJP national president Amit Shah has said that the party won't allow splitting of a religion.

"It is not right to divide a religion, tradition. The BJP does not believe in such practices and neither the party has any intention to use this issue for political gain," Shah said here on Tuesday.

He was speaking at a meeting of the Bharatiya Veerashiava Mathadheeshara Parishat ath Shivayoga Mandira.Shah further added that he had not come to the meeting with political objectives but only to seek blessings.

Channasiddarama Panditaradhya Shivacharya Swami of Sree Shaila Peeta said that the attempt to divide Veerashaiva-Lingayat religion had now reached the Centre.

The seer added that the pontiffs had planned to meet Amit Shah and the prime minister Narendra Modi in the regard.

In Hubballi, Shah said the BJP is not against reservation and the party would protect the interest of the oppressed classes.

Shah, who spoke to reporters, said that the BJP would never withdraw the reservation facility nor would allow any other party to do so.

Opposition parties are spreading rumours on social media reservation facility would be withdrawn. This just politics. Monday's Bharat bandh in connection with the Atorocities Act was also unnecessary.

"We have utmost faith in the Constitution given to us by Dr B R Ambedkar," he said.
