Katheria was heard saying that ‘bhagwakaran’ (saffronisation) or ‘sanghwad’ is good for the country and is bound to happen.
“We kept silent for such a long time and never accused anyone but today there is such a condition in this country. Today we need to create a curriculum which increases respect of our country in entire world,” he said during his speech.“If our kids don’t read about Maharana Pratap then who will they read about, Changez Khan?” Katheria added.
Katheria is a member of ruling BJP and represents Agra in Lok Sabha. He has a history of making such inflammatory remarks. In March this year he had called for a ‘show of strength’ against a particular community after alleged murder of VHP leader Arun Mahaur.
