Hitting out at Uttar Pradesh minister Mohd Azam Khan, who had adviced Yogi Adityanath to offer namaz, BJP MP Sakshi Maharaj on Saturday dared the senior SP leader to say 'Jai Shri Ram'.

"Azam is one person, who never speaks truth. He is advising Yogi Adiyanath to offer namaz," the BJP MP, who was in Unnao to attend a private function said.

He was only misleading muslims, Maharaj alleged.

"We people belong to Indian culture, where there is no difference between Allah, Bhagwan or God. We can say Allah-o-Akbar, if Azam has courage then he should say Jai Shri Ram," he said.

Reacting to BJP MP Yogi Adityanath's comments that those opposing 'Surya namaskar' should "drown in the sea", Azam had on Thursday said that the BJP leader should "offer namaz to set his mind on the right track".

"Although my advice to Yogi about namaz might not be correct but since he wants to use force to adopt any exercise, I am forced to express my opinion. He should rather offer namaz that would not only give him physical strength but also put his mind on the right track," he had said.
