BJP should take cue from its Bahraich MP Savitri Phoole on AMU row: Soz

Srinagar, May 13: Asking BJP top brass to take a cue from its Bahraich MP Savitri Phoole who termed Jinnah as “mahapurash”(great man), former Union minister and senior Congress leader Saifuddin Soz on Sunday said it is an “amazing warning to RSS/BJP die-hards seeking removal of Jinnah portrait from Aligarh Muslim University”.
Taking to micro blogging site, Soz said: “Amazing warning by BJP MP Bahraich Savitri Phoole to RSS/BJP die-hards seeking removal of Jinnah’s Portrait from AMU calls him prominent leader. I greeted her and denounced Aditiyanath’s extremism. I wish BJP top brass learns a lesson, appreciate savitri’s wise counsel”.
Amid the furore over a portrait of Muhammad Ali Jinnah hanging at AMU,, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP from Bahraich, Savitri Bai Phule, called him a “mahapurush” (great man) for his contribution towards India’s freedom struggle. “Jinnah was a great personality. He contributed to freedom struggle. He was, is and shall always remain a great person,” Phoole had reportedly said.
