BJP slams Salman Khurshid for comparing Hindutva to Isis, Boko Haram

BJP IT cell's Amit Malviya raked up the issue to say that the INC was drawing a tenuous equivalence with Islamic jihad to get Muslim votes

The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has slammed Indian National Congress (INC) leader Salman Khurshid for comparing Hindutva proponents and advocates to radical jihadi groups like Isis and Boko Haram in his new book. BJP’s IT cell head raked up the ‘saffron terror’ issue to say that the grand old party was drawing equivalence with Islamic jihad to get Muslim votes.

“Congress’s Salman Khurshid in his new book writes that Hindutva is similar to the jihadist Islamist groups like ISIS and Boko Haram. What else can we expect from someone whose party coined the term Saffron terror just to draw equivalence with Islamic jihad, to get Muslim votes?” Malviya tweeted.

Reacting to Khurshid’s statement, BJP national spokesperson Gaurav Bhatia said, “This reflects the true mindset of Congress. They try to legitimise the radical elements of Isis by creating an artificial equivalence with Hindus.”

Khurshid in the chapter called ‘The Saffron Sky’ of the book Sunrise Over Ayodhya: Nationhood in Our Times has compared Hindutva to Isis and Boko Haram. “Sanatan dharma and classical Hinduism known to sages and saints were being pushed aside by a robust version of Hindutva, by all standards a political version similar to the jihadist Islam of groups like Isis and Boko Haram of recent years,” he states in his new book on page number 113.

Meanwhile, a complaint has been filed against Salman Khurshid in Delhi by Vivek Garg, a Delhi-based lawyer. He has urged the police to lodge a case against the Congress leader for ‘defaming and comparing Hinduism with terrorism’.

Madhya Pradesh minister Narottam Mishra said Salman Khurshid must have published the book to purposely create a controversy.  “They support politics of appeasement. Congress leaders and the Gandhi family are supporters of the ‘tukde-tukde‘ gang. They want the country to be divided on the basis of castes,” Mishra said.
