Earlier this month, on 13 April, Firhad Hakim accused the Bharatiya Janata Party that it was targeting their religious identity in an attempt to further the politics of polarization. Hakim criticized the BJP’s claim that they would make the state a mini-Pakistan. He said that he is a nationalist and the attempt to polarize politics is contrary to the spirit of the Indian Constitution.
He said that I will take my last breath as an Indian and my grave will be on this ground.Hakim said that Modi and Shah are running joint partnership of BJP. He has dropped the level of elections a lot by making personal attacks on Mamta Didi and other leaders of our party. Only personal attacks cannot be politics.
