Bengaluru/IBNS: Stirring a row, Karnataka Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MLA M.P. Renukacharya said the Muslims are storing weapons in mosques instead of offering prayers, media reports said.

"Instead of offering prayers (namaz), Muslims are storing weapons in mosques and their priests (khazis) are giving fatwas instead of sermons," Renukacharya said at a pro-Citizenship (Amendment) Act (CAA) rally in his home town Honnalli as quoted by NDTV.

In another controversial remark, the BJP MLA said since Muslims have not responded to his call to support the CAA as evident from their absence in the rally, he would divert the funds allocated for the welfare of Muslims to Hindus.

"If they (minorities) consider our party (BJP) to be enemy despite treating them as equals, I too will ignore them and not entertain them if they continue to oppose our policies and programmes," he has been quoted by NDTV.

Distancing the party from Renukacharya's statement, BJP spokesperson S Prakash said as quoted by NDTV, "The party distances itself from such statements. He (Renukacharya) has made these statements in his personal capacity and the BJP has nothing to do with anything he said."
