BJP MP Nishikant Dubey demands immediate arrest of Cong MLA Irfan Ansari for visiting temple

| @indiablooms | 15 Apr 2021, 12:41 pm

Ranchi/IBNS: Jharkhand Congress MLA Irfan Ansari's visit to a temple has offended Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP Nishikant Dubey with the saffron party member demanding the arrest of his political foe.

Ansari on Wednesday performed puja at Baidyanath Dham temple in Deoghar.

Taking offence, Dubey claimed non-Hindus are not allowed to enter temples.

Countering Dubey, Ansari said, "I have been to Baba Bholenath's court thousands of times. But for the first time in the eyes of a fugitive MP..."

"No non-Hindu has entered the sanctum sanctorum of the Baba temple till date. Just as the entry of non-Muslims is forbidden in the Kaaba in Mecca, the entry of non-Hindus into the Baba temple is also forbidden," the BJP MP said as quoted by Times Now.

Jharkhand is presently ruled by Hemant Soren's Jharkhand Mukti Morcha in an alliance with the Congress.
