Does loving Hindus mean hating Muslims: CM Mamata on minority appeasement charge
The BJP and some other organisations have been accusing the Bengal CM of indulging in appeasement of Muslims for political reasons.

  Questing those accusing her of indulging in minority appeasement, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Saturday said the country belonged to everyone and that she respected and loved all communities and religion equally.

“Some accuse me of (doing) Muslim appeasement. My question to them is whether loving Hindus means you have to hate Muslims. I respect and love all communities and religion. This country belongs to everybody,” she said, while addressing a special prayer gathering at Red Fort in Kolkata on the occasion of Eid.

The Trinamool Congress supremo added, “Those who say I appease Muslims are friends of neither the Hindus nor the Muslims.”
