Congress BJP Hindutva War Explodes | HW English – HW News English

New Delhi : The statements on Hindutva and the ideologies of the Congress and the BJP have taken a face of war now. Amid row over Congress leader Salman Khurshid’s controversial book, his party leader Mani Shankar Aiyar attacked the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and said the Modi govt only considers those Hindus who suit them.
Addressing the press conference Aiyar entered into ‘Hindutva Controversy’ by saying the BJP considers only 80 per cent of the Hindus in India as Bharatiya.
Last week, former union minister Salman Khurshid stirred a political storm after he compared the BJP and RSS with ISIS and Boko Haram in his recent book “Sunrise Over Ayodhya: Nationhood in Our Times”.
Reacting sharply over the excepts of the book, BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra on Friday said that the Congress party’s attack on Hinduism is not a coincidence but an experiment. He alleged that the nature of Congress is to attack Hinduism whenever they get a chance.
Meanwhile, two Delhi lawyers have filed complaints on Thursday with Delhi Police against Khurshid, for allegedly defaming and comparing Hinduism with terrorism in his book.
Taking a dig at those who targeted his book over comparison between Hindutva and ISIS, Salman Khurshid on Saturday said that those ‘poor in English’ should get it translated for clarity as he has used the word ‘similar’ and not ‘same’.
“There is word ‘similar’ in English which means having a resemblance. I regret that I wrote in English; they seem poor in English, should get it translated for clarity,” he said.
The development comes at a time when seven states in the country namely Goa, Manipur, Punjab, Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Himachal Pradesh and Gujarat are slated to go for assembly elections in the year 2022.
Speaking to media persons during his visit to Kalki Dham, he said, “I am visiting Kalki Dham. I would not be here if I would have any issue with any religion. I believe that Hinduism spread peace in the world.”
“It seems that some people are trying to defame Hinduism. They are enemies of Hinduism and are afraid that their truth will come out. They will ban any book which reveals their truth,” he said.
“ISIS and Boko Haram defame Islam but no Islamic followers opposed it. I had not said ISIS and Hindutva same, I had said that they are similar,” he added.
On Wednesday, former union minister Salman Khurshid got embroiled in controversy over remarks made in his recent book “Sunrise Over Ayodhya: Nationhood in Our Times”.
Salman Khurshid’s book on the Ayodhya verdict was released last week.
