Assam Governor PB Acharya said that Indian Muslims are free to go anywhere, including Pakistan and Bangladesh, on Sunday. His remark came a day after he was reported to have said that “Hindustan is for Hindus”, reports The Indian Express.

They (Indian Muslims) are free to go anywhere. They can stay here (in India). If they want to go to Bangladesh or Pakistan, they are free to go. Many of them have gone to Pakistan. But if they are persecuted there… Taslima Nasreen was persecuted there, she came here. If they come, we will give them shelter.
