Lucknow: Flaying Mulayam Singh Yadav, senior BJP leader Murli Manohar Joshi on Sunday said the Samajwadi Party chief's recent statement that he would not allow Muslims to be cheated was dangerous.

"Mulayam had on Saturday said he will not tolerate that anyone should cheat Muslims. Does this mean he will tolerate that others should be subjected to cheating. What he said is dangerous," Joshi told reporters.

"There should be no cheating with anyone. Everybody has a right to get justice," he said.

Mulayam during a meeting with Muslim leaders on Saturday said any betrayal with the community would not be tolerated.

On recommendations of the Ranganath Commission and the Sachar Committee, Joshi said debates should be held on what these reports were all about and what were their contents.

"Raising such issues for vote bank politics is not good," he said.

To a question, Joshi said MNS chief Raj Thackeray should stop talking about division on linguistic and regional lines.

"This country belongs to all," he said adding no person should be allowed to disturb the social fabric of the country.

"BJP strongly opposes divisive forces," Joshi said.
