BJP's national spokesperson Shazia Ilmi accused the former Punjab DGP Mohammad Mustafa, who is also the principal strategic adviser to Punjab Congress chief Navjot Singh Sidhu, of trying to incite violence and disturb communal harmony by giving provocative statements ahead of the Punjab assembly elections 2022.

According to the BJP leaders, this video is from Malerkotla, where Mustafa, who is the husband of Punjab Minister Razia Sultana, had gone for election campaigning.

Shazia further said, "The Election Commission should take cognisance of this video and should not allow Razia, who is an MLA from Malerkotla, to contest the election."
