Controversial BJP MP Sakshi Maharaj on Saturday pitched for a law that provides for death penalty for cow slaughter and defended his party MLAs beating up Sheikh Abdul Rashid in the Jammu and Kashmir assembly as a “natural reaction” to the independent legislator’s action.
“J&K independent MLA’s assault was just a reaction. His action… hurt the masses and he was beaten up,” he said.
“Leaders need to change their mindset or get beaten up by the people in full public view,” the BJP MP from Unnao in Uttar Pradesh said addressing an event organised by International Hindu Mahasangha in Bhubaneshwar.
Rashid was recently assaulted in the state assembly after he allegedly hosted a beef party in Srinagar.
