Bharatiya Janata Party leader on Wednesday, launching a scathing attack, saying that the Muslims divided the country in the name of religion; hence they should leave the country.

"...Musalman iss desh mein rehna hi nahi chahiye, unhone jansankhya ke aadhaar par desh ka batwara kardia toh iss desh mein rehne ki kya avashyakta thi? Unko alag bhu-bhaag de dia gaya, ya jaayen yahan kya kaam hai unka? (Muslims should not live in this country. They divided the country in the name of religion, what is the need of living in this country? They should go to or Pakistan, what work do they have here?)" he asked.

Katiyar's statement comes in wake of All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) chief Asaduddin Owaisi's demand that the Central Government brings out a law that would make calling "Pakistani" a punishable offence.

Commenting further, Katiyar said that there should be a bill that punishes those who do not respect Vande Matram and insult the flag.

"There should be a bill that punishes those who do not respect Vande Matram, those who insult the flag. Those who hoist the Pakistani flag, they should be punished," Katiyar told ANI.
