Uttar Pradesh minister Azam Khan has criticised Prime Minister Narendra Modi for raising ‘Jai Shree Ram’ slogan at the Dussehra function, saying that the PM belonged to the nation and should have raised slogans of all religions.

“He belongs to all...he should also have raised Allah-u-Akbar, Waheguru ji ka Khalsa ....,” Khan told reporters here last night.

Modi in his address at the Dussehra function in Lucknow had started his speech with ‘Jai Shree Ram’ slogan.

Taking exception to Modi’s stance on ‘triple talaq’, Khan said that he will not allow any injustice to Muslim women but “how talaq has to be given, how marriages will be conducted and how namaz has to be offered, are matter which will be decided as per the Personal law”.

He also opposed BJP’s move to build a Ramayana museum in Ayodhya.
