Ballari: Former minister Janardhana Reddy has claimed that his brother MLA G. Somasekhara Reddy’s statement against Muslims was instigated by some people.

He was speaking after inaugurating the ‘Milad’ limited-overs cricket tournament for Muslim youth organised by the McWeller Association under the leadership of his close friend Ali Khan at the Idgah ground in the City on Sunday October 30.

In Ballari, Hindus and Muslims are like brothers and sisters. They are always with us, said Janardhana Reddy, whose brother MLA G. Somasekhara Reddy has made statements against Muslims in the past. However, someone instigated him and made him utter those statement. In the coming days, we will know who it is. Somasekhara Reddy has already apologised for his remarks. He tried to convince the Muslims that all Muslims should always be with us, he noted.

Popular Front of India (PFI) and Social Democratic Party of India (SDPI) office-bearers were raided in various parts of the country, including in the State, and several others were arrested. However, such incidents have not taken place only in Ballari. The Muslims here are full of love and sincerity, he declared.
