"RSS men are gay that's why they don't marry," says Azam Khan

Rampur: The Uttar Pradesh cabinet minister Azam Khan, known for his controversial statements, once again sparked another row. This time the minister has taken Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) on his target while talking about Gay Rights on Sunday.

Attacking the right wing organisation, RSS, Azam Khan said, "RSS volunteers are like that (homosexuals) which is why they don't marry."

The Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, in a statement supporting Gay Rights, had mentioned that supreme Court should reconsider Article 377.

'When you have millions of people involved in this (homosexuality) you can't nudge them off,' Jaitley had said while addressing a session at the Times LitFest, adding that the court had taken a 'conservative view'.

Azam Khan, who was visiting the Inspection Building of Rampur in UP said that Parliament should have a firm perspective about it. He said that the Parliament is capable of it and is the biggest court in the country.

"It is not necessary that rest of the people too have the same perspective. RSS men are like that. RSS have been accused of the same since the very beginning that's why they don't marry," Azam Khan said.
