New Delhi : A Shiv Sena member in the Lok Sabha on Thursday demanded that the Jinnah House in Mumbai should be demolished saying this was where Pakistan’s founder Mohammad Ali Jinnah had “conspired” for India’s partition.

Rahul Shewale said a memorial for freedom fighters should be there built.

After the passage of the Enemy Property Act, the Jinnah House, Jinnah’s residence before partition, is now under the government’s control and sought that it should be demolished, he said during the Zero Hour.

He claimed that Jinnah had hatched the conspiracy to partition India here and demanded that a memorial for freedom fighters should be built in its place.–PTI
