Congress leader Salman Khurshid sparks controversy
The senior Congress leader and former minister of Law and Justice and former minister of External Affairs Salman Khurshid made unempathetic, insensitive, and irresponsible remarks on a TV interview.
On the Kashmiri Hindu exodus, he remarked, “Ho gaye to ho gaye, hum kya karein…”. He was answering the questions raised by the news anchor Amish Devgan on Kashmiri Hindus being forced to leave J&K in the 1990s.
He has sparked a controversy over his book ‘Sunrise Over Ayodhya’, in which he has compared Hindutva to ISIS and Boko Haram.
The Congress leader Salman Khurshid landed himself into troubled waters over his comparison of Hindutva to radical jihadist groups like ISIS and Boko Haram, in his new book on Ayodhya verdict. The comment has been made in a chapter called “The Saffron Sky.”
Reacting to the statement, BJP national spokesperson Gaurav Bhatia said, “This reflects the true mindset of Congress; they try to legitimize the radical elements of ISIS by creating an artificial equivalence with Hindus.”
A criminal complaint was filed against Salman Khurshid on Wednesday when Vivek Garg, a Delhi-based lawyer urged the Delhi Police Commissioner to lodge a case against the Congress leader for defaming and comparing Hindusim with terrorism.
