Gadag (Karnataka): BJP leader and Minister for Agriculture in Karnataka, B.C. Patil, sparked a row on Monday after he said that it is insanity to think of a Muslim leader becoming the Prime Minister of India.

Speaking to reporters here, Patil said:

"This is 'Bharat'. It is impossible for a Muslim to become the Prime Minister here."

When asked if he meant a Muslim leader should not become the Prime Minister, Patil said it is not possible.

"This is Bharat," he reiterated.

Patil also said that it is necessary to implement Uniform Civil Code in the country.

"It is required and it will be implemented," he said.

"The Centre needs to form a law in this regard. Once it is done, Uniform Civil Code will be implemented all over the country," he maintained.

Patil made these remarks days after senior Congress leader and MP Shashi Tharoor while commenting on Rishi Sunak becoming Prime Minister of UK wondered if India would ever see a Muslim as prime minister.

Following the outrage over Tharoor's remarks, AIMIM Chief Asaduddin Owaisi said he hoped a "Hijab wearing female" will indeed become prime minister of India one day.
