New Delhi, January, 18, 2020:

Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Ram Madhav called the German dictator Adolf Hitler and Italian dictator Benito Mussolini “products of democracy” while speaking at the Raisina Dialogue in New Delhi.

The BJP National General Secretary said that the ones who lost in the democratic process, engaged in violence in the streets. He was referring to the Opposition and the protests against the amendment of the Citizenship Act (or CAA).

Madhav also called the Indian democracy “non-discriminatory” as it provided citizenship to people from outside after different periods of their stay. The leader defended the centre’s move to implement the CAA and said that it was passed in the “most democratic manner”.

However, taking a jibe at Ram Madhav for his remark that Hitler and Mussolini were products of democracy, All India Majlis-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) chief Asaduddin Owaisi on Friday said that call for revenge and bullets against protesters was “peak Nazism”. He was referring to the killing of Anti-CAA protesters across the country at the hands of authorities.

The Hyderabad MP took to Twitter and wrote, “Savarkar & Gowalkar were big bhakts of Nazism/Fascism in Europe Today, this ‘bhakti’ is proved by the fact that a terror accused is a ruling party MP To protest peacefully is a democratic right. To call for badla (revenge) & goli (bullets) against protestors is peak Nazism.”

It may be mentioned here that India’s democracy has come under the scanner after violent protests erupted across the country following the passage of the Citizenship Amendment Bill in the Rajya Sabha.

Although the protests took the peaceful and cultural route to continue opposing the new legislation, several leaders and protesters were detained and arrested for raising their voice against the Act that offers citizenship to Hindus, Sikhs, Jains, Parsis, Buddhists and Christians from Bangladesh, Pakistan and Afghanistan on the basis of religious persecution.
