Mamata Banerjee, alleging that she is known for "genocide of Hindus" and is now allowing her party's workers to sexually attack women. "Mamata Banerjee is known for the genocide of Hindus. She will now allow her men to pick young married Hindu women to be raped in the TMC office...
Who is this man who has been charged by the women of Sandeshkhali of the mass rape of Bengali Hindu women?... Till now everybody has been wondering who is Sheikh Shahjahan. Now, the question Mamata Banerjee has to answer is - where is Sheikh Shahjahan?", said Union Minister Smriti Irani.
Irani alleged that Banerjee is known for "genocide of Hindus". "That she will now allow her men to pick out Hindu young married women to rape them night after night in the TMC office cannot be articulated in mere words," she said, citing the details of the allegations. "The question is can we as citizens be mute spectators," the Union minister said, accusing the TMC supremo of trading the dignity of vulnerable communities like scheduled castes and scheduled tribes for "political benefits".
