Lucknow (Uttar Pradesh) [India], Jan 5 (ANI): The maulana of the Haj house, whose exterior walls were painted in saffron colour in Lucknow, has averred that the government should not do anything that hurts the sentiments of the Muslim community.
"I think this is not a right decision because the saffron colour is the identity of a particular religion, while Haj is associated with Islam. So the government shouldn't do anything that hurts the sentiments of Muslims," Maulana Nadeem-ul-Wajidi of Deoband told ANI.
However, the Opposition is claiming that the BJP resorted to alleged 'saffronisation' of the state. (ANI)
