BJP Leader Vikram Randhawa Removed From All Party Posts For Hate Speech Against Muslims

SRINAGAR : The Bharatiya Janata Party has removed party leader and former MLC Vikram Randhawa from all party posts, including that of the Jammu and Kashmir BJP secretary post, with immediate effect. The move comes in the wake of his controversial remarks on the Muslim community.

The BJP order relieving Vikram Randhawa of his duties in party posts.

Jammu and Kashmir Police had earlier registered an FIR against Vikram Randhawa for making derogatory remarks against Kashmiri Muslims. The FIR was filed after a video of Vikram Randhawa purportedly making derogatory remarks against Muslims following the Pakistan cricket team’s win against India in the T20 World Cup match went viral on social media.

The Jammu and Kashmir unit of BJP then served a show-cause notice to Randhawa, with party chief Ravinder Raina saying that his remarks were against the basic principles of the party, which believes in respecting all faiths. “This is unacceptable to the party and has brought disrepute and embarrassment to the party,” the notice read.
