Will not give land for building Muslim Varsity: BJP

Ruling BJP in Karnataka today said it would not provide land for setting up of Tipu Muslim University proposed by the Centre in Srirangapatna taluk of Mandya district, alleging it will become a "breeding ground for anti-national elements".

However, Union Minister for Minorities Welfare K Rahaman Khan said the University would be established.

"The state government will not provide land for setting up of Tipu Muslim University proposed by the union government in Srirangapatna for it will become a breeding ground for anti-national elements," Karnataka BJP Spokesperson and MLC G Madhusudan told reporters at Mysore.

Reacting to Madhusudhan's statement, Khan told reporters at Mangalore that "is Madhusudhan an authority by himself? We have taken a decision. We will do it (set up the University)."

Madhusudhan alleged a separate varsity for minorities would not augur well as it would vitiate peace and breed anti-national elements.

He charged the union government was playing vote-bank politics to appease some "anti-social" organisations run by minorities.

Terming the Karnataka Forum for Dignity as an "anti-national" organisation, Madhusudhan alleged several of its members were involved in criminal activities.
