Viral video shows Congress leader saying Narendra Modi is from lower caste, can’t talk about Hinduism

Senior Congress leader CP Joshi is seen in the video suggesting that only people belonging to the Brahmin caste have the rights and knowledge to talk about Hinduism. BJP leaders like Narendra Modi, Uma Bharati and others belonging to the ‘lower caste’ can’t talk about religion, he says.

There is no end to Congress leaders targeting the caste and humble background of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. After ‘neech aadmi‘ and ‘chaiwala‘ barbs from party leaders, the latest to join the list is senior Congress leader from Rajasthan C P Joshi, who has launched a casteist attack against Modi and other BJP leaders.

In a video that has gone viral, former minister C P Joshi is seen claiming that only pandits, intellectuals, Brahmins know about Hinduism, and others should not talk about the religion. Media reports suggest that the was addressing an election rally in Nathdwara in Rajasthan on 21st November:

Joshi is heard saying that the country has become a strange place where anyone starts speaking about Hinduism. He also attacks Uma Bharti for belonging to Lodhi caste (an OBC) but for talking about talking about Hinduism. In later part of the video, he even suggests that these people belonging to the lower castes, including Narendra Modi is from some other ‘dharam‘ (religion) and thus should not talk about Hindu religion.

The Congress party leaders routinely mock Narendra Modi for humble background, often referring to him as chaiwala. Now, CP Joshi has gone ahead and reminded people that Modi belongs to a lower caste. He also says that lowers caste people are not intelligent like brahmins, and they should not talk about Hinduism as that is the exclusive domain of brahmins, pandits and intellectuals.

C P Joshi had made another controversial comment yesterday, when he said that only a Prime Minister from Congress can get the Ram Temple built in Ayodhya. He said that it was Rajiv Gandhi who opened the lock of the Babri Masjid and allowed religious rites inside the disputed structure.
