Zameer is from Jinnah's clan, charges Sogadu Shivanna

Former Minister Sogadu Shivanna on Saturday sought the police to register cases against Food, Civil Supplies, Minority and Wakf Department Minister Zameer Ahmed Khan for his statements on those Muslims who voted for the BJP.

The Minister had recently stated that those Muslims who voted for the BJP were not genuine Muslims.

"Zameer Ahmed Khan is a communal element. The police should act voluntarily and book him," he told reporters.

"He belongs to Muhammad Ali Jinnah clan. His statements affect harmony in the society. There is a need to curb such elements from making irresponsible statement affecting country's unity, he said.

"We should not affect harmony in the society. There is a need to preserve the Hindu culture or we will be spoiled," he said.

"I have requested MLA Basanagounda Patil Yatnal to rake up the issue on the floor of the house in the Assembly," he said.

"Nobody should affect the bond between Hindus and Muslims. It is improper to continue him as the minister, he said.

He came down heavily upon AICC president Rahul Gandhi for taking up Amarnath Yatra.

"When we took up the Amarnath Yatra, the Congress leaders charged that we were communal. However, now, the Congress leaders are thronging temples and Mutts. They have learnt a lesson only after losing everything," he said.
