BJP MLC sparks controversy; says Hanuman was a Muslim
Earlier, UP CM Yogi Adityanath had branded Hanuman as a Dalit-
After Yogi Adityanath theory of branding Hanuman as a Dalit, Bukkal Nawab, a councillor of BJP has come up with a new theory calling Hanuman as a Muslim.
"Hanuman belonged to the entire world. He was loved by people of every religion, every sect and every community. But, as far as my beliefs go, he was a Muslim," said Nawab.
The MLC's reason for concluding this was also very different. "I say Hanuman was a Muslim because the names of people in our religion, such as Rehman, Ramzan, Farman, Zishan and Qurban, rhyme with the god's," he said, before saying a few more Muslim names -- Imran, Furqan, Sultan and Suleman -- to further prove his claim.
