Mr. Rizvi reportedly approached the SC and demanded the removal of 26 verses from the Quran for allegedly “teaching hate, violence and terrorism”.

BJP national spokesman Hussain said that Rizvi should not spoil the atmosphere of the country by indulging in such acts.

Mr. Hussain said, “I demand Wasim Rizvi's removal of 26 verses from the Quran. It is my party's favor that it is libelous to say absurd things about any religious scripture, including the Quran.”

The BJP is against those who insult any religious scripture.

He said, “The BJP is not in favor of any change in the Quran or any other religious texts.”

Hussain said that the BJP does not accept Rizvi's views as it hurts the sentiments of the people.

He said that Wasim Rizvi had no right to hurt the religious sentiments of the people.
