Union Minister Smriti Irani had earlier attacked Shashi Tharoor for insulting Hinduism through his remarks and alleged Rahul Gandhi’s tacit approval of Tharoor’s remarks. “It is appalling to see his tweet and he has done it with the support of Rahul Gandhi,” Smriti Irani said in response to Shashi Tharoor’s tweet insulting the world’s largest Hindu congregation in Kumbh.
This is not the first time that Tharoor has hurt the sentiments of Hindus. He has often been critical of Hinduism and the demands raised by Hindus. Apart from keeping a stoic silence on the atrocious murders of Hindu activists in Kerala, he has also gratuitously claimed that no ‘good Hindu’ would want to build a Ram Temple in Ayodhya. Later, he also went on a tirade against Ram Temple at the Ramjanmabhoomi by sermonising Hindus to follow their scriptures.
Even the Congress president Rahul Gandhi is not far behind in insulting Hindus and Hinduism. He recently claimed that building Ram temple is a non-issue for his party. His party Congress also wanted to pass the Communal Violence Bill which basically ensured that only Hindus would be considered perpetrators and never a Muslim, should there be any communal violence. The bugbear of “Saffron Terror” narrative was concocted by Congress for falsely implicating Sadhvi Pragya and even Lt Col Purohit. It was Rahul Gandhi who deemed mythical “saffron terror” more dangerous than LeT. The list of Congress’ betrayal with respect to Hindus is rather interminable.
