Muslims who chose to stay in India when it was partitioned following independence from
Britain did the country "no favours", Yogi Adityanath, one of India's most controversial right-wing politicians, has said. "They should have opposed partition, which led to the formation of Pakistan," he told BBC Hindi's Nitin Srivastava in an exclusive interview. Mr Adityanath is the chief minister of the northern state of Uttar Pradesh, India's most populous state and home to nearly a quarter of India's 200 million Muslims. His government has recently been accused of using excessive force against protesters, especially Muslims, opposing a contentious new citizenship law.
