Days of divisive politics over: Ashok Singhal

ANI  |  New Delhi 

Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) patron Ashok Singhal on Thursday said that the days of divisive politics that some so called secular parties play are over.

"Days of divisive politics that some so called secular parties play are over. There is no Hindutva agenda. In fact, I think there should be a Uniform Civil Code," said Singhal.

Earlier, Singhal had said that the recent general elections have shown that polls can be won without Muslim support, and that now the latter should learn to respect Hindus.

Singhal's comment has garnered a lot of criticism from various political parties.
