“The Bhagavad Gita is like the Sun. I think that it is the duty of every Indian to respect the Bhagvad Gita like they respect other elements surrounding them. I strongly feel that if someone does not respect it, they have no place in India. They should leave the country and settle abroad,”
India may have a secular constitution but politics is driven by demography. Caste and Religion rule everything behind the scenes. That antics like this can be used to drum up support.

Caste, creed and religion are so intertwined in indian politics that it is secular in name only.
