Addressing an election rally in Bhopal, Singh said, “Pragya Thakur says she had cursed ATS chief Hemant Karkare, who had made supreme sacrifice for the country and is considered a martyr. There would have been no need of surgical strikes if she had cursed Masood Azhar”.
 
Singh also took a dig at Prime Minister Narendra Modi, saying that PM had said that terrorists were hunted even when they were hiding in hell, but went on to ask the PM that where was he when Pulwama, Pathankot and Uri attacks happened in the country.
 
Further, the Congress veteran said that Hindus, Muslims, Sikh, Christians are brothers.
 
“These people say Hindus should get united as they are in danger. I want to tell them that this country was ruled by Muslims for 500 years. No harm was done to any religion. Be careful of those people who sell religion,” he said.
 
In our religion, we say ‘Har Har Mahadev’. But our religious sentiments were hurt by the BJP when they say ‘Har Har Modi’. We all know whose photo will appear on the screen if we type “feku” (liar) on Google," he added.
