BJP blames Rahul, Congress for violence in Maharashtra

The BJP on Saturday accused Rahul Gandhi and different Congress leaders of constructing “false” statements in opposition to Hindus. Saffron social gathering leaders claimed that by creating variations in society, Congress leaders had been triggering violence just like the one which passed off in Maharashtra’s Amravati not too long ago.

“From the statements made by Rahul Gandhi, it is clear that he has a lot of hatred for Hindus… A false news was spread that masjids were broken in Tripura. It triggered violence in Maharashtra. But investigation proved that the news was baseless,” BJP nationwide spokesperson and Rajya Sabha MP Sudhhanshu Trivedi mentioned.

A day after the social gathering criticised Rahul for drawing a distinction between Hinduism and Hindutva, at a coaching programme organised in Maharashtra’s Wardha, Trivedi mentioned, “We would like to know if you were training your workers or was it a training session against the Hindus? Or was it a campaign to incite communal differences and violence?” he mentioned.

A curfew was imposed in Amravati on Saturday after violence broke out within the metropolis following protests by members of the minority neighborhood over alleged incidents in Tripura.

Trivedi mentioned Congress leaders’ feedback attacking Hindutva had been a part of a conspiracy. The BJP has been on the offensive after Congress chief Salman Khurshid in contrast Hindutva, a time period related to the RSS-BJP ideology, with terrorist Islamist organisations.

Stating that “Shivaji’s rule – which contained Mughal attempts to conquer India – was also associated with Hinduism,” Trivedi mentioned leaders like Rahul Gandhi can not comprehend the idea and requested him to learn up the works of Congress stalwarts like Mahatma Gandhi, Bal Gangadhar Tilak and Jawaharlal Nehru. Nehru in his Discovery of India wrote that the phrase ‘Hindu’ might be understood within the broader context of the Indian identification and shouldn’t be considered narrowly.

Trivedi alleged India was “partly a Muslim nation” – with a short exception throughout Atal Bihari Vajpayee’s time – earlier than the Narendra Modi-led BJP regime took over the reins of the nation. “The decision of the Supreme Court was overturned in Parliament to put the provisions of sharia above the Constitution. Be it the Haj subsidy or instant talaq. It was not like that even in Islamic countries… This shows this all is in the DNA of the Congress,” Trivedi mentioned.

“The Supreme Court judgment was overruled to give primacy to sharia provisions,” Trivedi mentioned in an obvious reference to the Rajiv Gandhi-led authorities formulating a regulation to override the apex court docket’s order within the Shah Bano case.

The BJP chief took a swipe at Congress leaders and referred to their use of phrases like ‘Hindu Taliban’ and ‘Hindu terrorism’. “These are the same people who do not want a proud India to bloom in all its glory, and are trying to stop its rise,” he mentioned.
