The BJP lawmaker from Bairia in Uttar Pradesh had made controversial comments on Wednesday when he defended lawmaker Kuldeep Singh Sengar who allegedly raped a 17-year-old girl last year.
"Tell me who will rape a mother of three? He is being falsely implicated," Surendra Singh had told reporters on the sidelines of an event.
Last night, during a public meeting in Uttar Pradesh's Ballia, Surendra Singh had said, "The 2019 poll are going to be on the lines of Pakistan versus Bharat... Islam versus Bhagwan and so the respected people of the country you have to decide whether it will be Islam which will win or Bhagwan."
"(You have to) decide if it is the dishonest that will be victorious or (Narendra) Modi's sincerity," he said.
"People have to decide if they are with Bhagwan or Islam," Surendra Singh said.
"It will be Bharat 'bhakti' will take on 'vibhakti' (divisive forces)," he said.
Surendra Singh had earlier said, "There are a very few Muslims who are patriotic. Once India becomes a Hindu 'rashtra' (Hindu nation), Muslims who assimilate in our culture will stay in India. Those who will not, are free to take asylum in any other country".
