Bengaluru: Karnataka’s agriculture minister BC Patil stoked controversy with a statement. He has called for a law to shoot at sight those who speak ill of India or raise pro-Pakistan slogans. This comes a few days after a 19-year-old girl was arrested in Bengaluru for shouting ‘Pakistan Zindabad’ slogan at an anti-Citizenship (Amendment) Act rally.
Patil, while speaking to reports, requested Prime Minister Narendra Modi “to bring in a tough law to deal with traitors.” He said, “They are enjoying food, water and air of India. Why should they be here if they raise 'Pakistan Zindabad' slogan? In China, people are scared to talk against their country. I request PM (Narendra) Modi to bring in a strict law to deal with traitors,” said Patil.
