New Delhi: There are no limits to weird thoughts and ideas of people. And it won't be wrong to say that politicians have excelled in this.
This time it was Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MLA, Basangouda Patil Yatnal who said that the devastating floods in Kerala are the result of ruthless cow slaughtering in the state.
The BJP lawmaker from Karnataka's Vijayapura further said that the people of Kerala suffered because of hurting the sentiments of Hindus.
"Slaughtering cows is against the feelings of the Hindu community. One should not hurt the feelings of other religions. Now you see what happened to Kerala, they openly slaughtered cows and you see in less than one year they've come to this stage," he said.
"Whoever hurts Hindu community's feelings will be punished this way", Yatnal added.
Interestingly, this is not the first time when the BJP MLA grabbed the headlines for his weird comments. In June, right after the Karnataka elections, Yatnal urged his party workers to stop working for the Muslims as, according to him, they had not voted for the party.
