Expelled SP leader Amar Singh on Saturday said viewing Muslims with an eye of suspicion was not fair as they have made sacrifices for the country.
'Looking Muslims with a suspicious eye is not fair. They had played a pivotal role and sacrificed their lives for the freedom and security of the country,' Singh said while addressing a meeting of newly found Lok Manch.
He alleged that while Muslims were being blamed, some Hindu organisations were also indulging in terrorist activities in the country.
Arrest of Pragya Thakur in Malegaon blast has proved that not only Muslim organisation, but even some extreme Hindu outfits were also involved in terror conspiracy in the country, Amar alleged.
Accusing SP supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav of promoting nepotism in the party, he alleged he (Mulayam) was neither a well wisher nor he gave any prominence to Muslims.
Advocating creation of a separate Poorvanchal state, Amar Singh said development of the region could not be ensured without carving out a new state.
