A video has emerged of senior Congress leader Kamal Nath allegedly advising Muslims to remain patient till the assembly elections and “we will deal with them later”. BJP spokespersons seemed to suggest that senior Congress leader Kamal Nath was talking about dealing with Hindus on behalf of Muslims.
The video was shared by many on social media and even the senior BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra. The time and location of the video are, however, still unknown.
“अभी temporary जनेउ पहन रखा है …निपट लेंगे इनसे बाद में..”

In the video, Nath can be heard saying, “The RSS is associated with Nagpur. They come by morning and leave by night. They have only one slogan, ‘If you want to vote for Hindus, then vote for Hindu-Sher Modi. If you want to vote for Muslims, vote for Congress. They know only these two lines, they know nothing else. This is their politics and you will have to be cautious. They will try to provoke you. We will deal with them later but you’ll have to suffer everything until the assembly elections.”
Congress in its manifesto for the Madhya Pradesh assembly elections promised to ban RSS shakhas in government buildings and revoke the permission given to government officials to attend events organized by the saffron organization. Congress also demanded the removal of Deputy Advocate General of the state for speaking out against its manifesto.
In the past, Congress President Rahul Gandhi had compared the RSS with the Muslim Brotherhood. We had speculated then that the Congress may be planning a crackdown on the organization. Kamal Nath’s words in the video, which appears to be authentic, is the surest sign of it yet.
