'BJP, RSS promoting Hindu terrorism'
Posted on Sun , 20 Jan '13
Union home minister Sushilkumar Shinde has today stirred up a major political controversy by saying that RSS and BJP are promoting Hindu terrorism in their training camps. Speaking during Congress's Chintar Shivir at Jaipur, Shinde said that there are reports that RSS, BJP camps are promoting Hindu terror in the country. He further alleged that RSS was behind Samjhauta, Mecca Masjid and Malegaon blasts. Standing by Shinde's comment, senior Congress leader Manishankar Aiyar said the minister has underlined an open secret. Meanwhile hitting back at Congress, the BJP said Shinde's statement could dent the communal peace in the country and demanded Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi to apologise for Shinde's statement.
