Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP Savitri Bai Phule on Thursday said that Pakistan's founder Muhammad Ali Jinnah was a 'maha purush' who had contributed in country's independence.

She said, 'Jinnah was a 'maha purush' and will always remain so. He had contributed in country's independence.' In Aligarh recently some groups protested against the portrait of Pakistan's founder Jinnah, present at the office of Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) student union's office.

The matter grabbed headlines first after Bharatiya Janata Party's (BJP) Aligarh MP Satish Gautam questioned the portrait's presence in the office.
