Union minister Giriraj Singh found himself amidst the criticism yet again. Speaking at the ‘Shrimad Bhagwat Katha Gyapan’ event in Bihar, Giriraj made controversial comments on Hindu NRIs stating that they tend to go abroad and most of them start eating beef. “Indian children are not being taught about our culture and tradition. They go abroad and start eating beef as we don’t teach them our trading values. In turn, we blame them for not taking care of us,” he added. The union minister then found fault with Indian parent joining their kinds in missionary schools which fail in teaching Hindutva.
He then stressed the need for implementing the teaching of Gita in schools and urged the schools to teach lessons of the verse of the Gita. On the other hand, Opposition leaders condemned these religious statements made by Giriraj in the wake of protests across the country. They demand an unconditional apology from the BJP leader.
