NCP leader Tariq Anwar criticised Heptulla, terming the reported remarks as “unfortunate”.

“If she has given that statement, it is very unfortunate.

I think she has given the statement to ensure her continuance as a minister. She says she is from Maulana Azad’s family. It appears that to remain in power she can go to any extent,” Anwar said, taking a dig at her.

BJP, however, said the controversy should be over after she has issued a clarification.

BJP leader Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi said the chapter should be closed after her clarification.

Patra said, “I believe what Najmaji meant was cultural unity of India and these issues should not be seen with a religious angle. Unity in diversity is in the ethos of the country and we should all believe in that”.

Cabinet minister and another BJP leader Narendra Singh Tomar said the Supreme Court had described Hinduism as a way of life and what Heptulla has said is on almost similar lines.
