Khan, who is the sitting MP from Rampur, has alleged that the shops run by Muslims were vandalised ahead of the festival of Eid.

In an indirect attack on BJP candidate from Rampur Lok Sabha seat, Jaya Prada, Samajwadi Party (SP) leader Azam Khan's son Abdullah Azam Khan on Sunday said that we want both "Ali and Bajrang Bali," but not "Anarkali".
The case has been registered against the BJP leader for allegedly saying, "Considering the comments Azam Khan makes against me, Mayawati you must think "unki x-ray jaisi aankhein aapke upar bhi kaha-kaha daal kar dekhengi" (his X-rays like eyes will also stare at you)"
Naqvi allegedly used the name of popular Bollywood villain "Mogambo" while referring to Khan during a public rally here on Monday, in the wake of the latter's 'Khaki underwear' remark towards actor-turned-politician and his BJP opponent from Rampur Lok Sabha seat, Jaya Prada.
The poll body’s action came hours after it similarly barred UP CM Yogi Adityanath from campaigning for 72 hours and Mayawati for 48 hours.
Amit Shah tore into Azam Khan for his ‘lewd comments’ against party candidate Jaya Prada and demanded apology from Samajwadi Party (SP) and its ally Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) over his derogatory comments.
Asserting that he did not name anyone, the Samajwadi leader told ANI that he would withdraw his candidature from the ongoing polls if proved guilty.
NCW chairperson said "Women are not sex objects. I think, women voters should vote against such kind of people who are treating women in such way."
