Patna: Anti-Indian forces and followers of Asaduddin Owaisi and Zakir Naik in Patna on Friday took out a rally chanting 'Pakistan Zindabad' in full view of the city police and press reporters causing the Nitish government to squirm in the face of the impending criticism of the Chief Minister who is increasingly seen as a supporter of those who intend to do harm to the nation.

Carrying banner in support of Owaisi and Naik who recently sparked a controversy when he said that killing in the name of war was justified in Quran and the recent Dhaka terror attack was inspired by one of his speeches, the protestors took out a rally from Patna Science College to the Kargil Chowk demanding all charges against the Muslim cleric be dropped.

Naik, who faces imminent arrest for his anti-India and anti-Hindu stands, remains in Saudi Arabia from where he continues to call for Jihad against the 'infidels' who, he said, want to wipe off Islam from the face of the earth.

Bihar Director General of Police (DGP) P. K. Thakur said that while the Friday rally by the Popular Front of India (PFI) was sanctioned by the local authority, it was under investigation for the extreme anti-India rhetoric by some Muslims living in Patna.

PFI leader Mohammed Reyaz Moari said that for years there was a concerted effort to silence Muslim leaders in India and the two leaders – Owaisi and Naik – were giving voice to those who had remained moot spectators for all these years.

Thakur said that FIRs have been lodged with the Pirbahore police station against two PFI activists who were seen on video chanting anti-India slogans.

Meanwhile, as expected, BJP leaders in Bihar pounced on Janata Dal – U President and Chief Minister Nitish Kumar for being soft on terrorism and thus giving tacit nod to anti-India activities by those who were considered to be the enemies of the nation.

"It is unfortunate that anti-India forces are openly chanting anti-national statements but the Chief Minister chooses to ignore it so as not to damage his vote bank. By continuing to ignore the growing Islamic terrorism, the Chief Minister is in fact encouraging it that could prove to be very dangerous for the nation," senior BJP leader Nand Kishore Yadav said.

Reminding people of Kumar's penchant for supporting extremists like Ishrat Jahan and Kanhaiya Kumar, the former Minister said that due to the callous behavior of the Chief Minister, Bihar had turned into a 'Safe Zone' for the terrorists who know they will always have the support of Kumar.
