Mumbai: Gujarat Chief Minister and senior Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Narendra Modi has attacked Congress General Secretary Rahul Gandhi for reportedly making comments on Hindu terror and claiming that such radicalised groups created religious tensions and political confrontations with the Muslim community.
Targeting Rahul, the Chief Minister of Gujarat said that the Congress leader’s comments only helped Pakistan.
“Yesterday through the WikiLeaks expose revealed who gave all the information to America. Now it is clear why America is backing Pakistan,” Modi said on Saturday.
Former BJP leader Uma Bharti also lashed out against Rahul and his political mentor Digvijaya Singh.
“Congress is itself involved in terror. I will advice Rahul Gandhi to study history and if Digvijay Singh is not providing good lessons, he can come to me for classes,” said Uma in Lucknow.
However, Rahul Gandhi has stood by his comments on Hindu terror leaked by WikiLeaks. The Congress party issued a statement on Friday saying that India should remain vigilant against terrorism of all kinds.
“Rahul Gandhi’s view is that terrorism and communalism of all types is threat to India. We need to remain vigilant, against acts of terrorism of all kinds no matter who commits them,” the press statement said.
