BJP’s Kapil Mishra stirs row again, says AAP should be renamed as Muslim League

Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Kapil Mishra, who was pulled up by the Election Commission for his inflammatory tweets, courted controversy yet again with his tweet against the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP).

Taking to Twitter, the BJP leader said the AAP should be renamed Muslim League. “The new name of the Aam Aadmi Party should be Muslim League. Umar Khalid, Afzal Guru, Burhan Wani  and those who consider terrorists as their father are afraid of Yogi Adityanath,” Kapil Mishra said.

Kapil Mishra’s comments came after the AAP asked the Election Commission to ban Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath from campaigning in Delhi over his alleged provocative speeches and sought his arrest. “Adityanath must be arrested for his communal speeches. We have lodged a complaint with the EC,” AAP leader Sanjay Singh had said.

Adityanath had alleged that those who supported terrorists in Kashmir were staging protest in Shaheen Bagh and raising slogans of ”azadi’. The UP chief minister had also attacked his Delhi counterpart Arvind Kejriwal, alleging that he and his party were siding with protesters at Shaheen Bagh and that a Pakistan minister and AAP were speaking on similar terms.

The BJP candidate from Delhi’s Model Town constituency, Kapil Mishra, was banned by the Election Commission from campaigning for 48 hours after he had said that Delhi will witness Indian vs Pakistan on February 8, referring to the voting for the assembly poll that is slated to take place in the city on that day. Kapil Mishra in a tweet had said that “India and Pakistan will compete on the streets of Delhi on February 8”.
