Shatrughan Sinha, Yashwant Sinha and others attend event convened by man who blamed RSS for Mumbai Terror Attacks

Farooq Abdullah, Yashwant Sinha and TMC MP Idris Ali also attended the event

As the Lok Sabha election comes closer, rebel BJP leader Shatrughan Sinha has started attending an increasing number of anti-BJP, anti-Modi events. After participating in the United India Rally organised by Mamata Banerjee in Kolkata, Sinha announced on Twitter on Tuesday that he had recently attended the Tahaffuz-e-Watan conference at Grand Oberoi, Kolkata.

As per Sinha, the conference was attended by Farooq Abdullah, former Chief Minister of Jammu and Kashmir, Idris Ali, MP from Trinamool Congress, the Muslim Ulema and other Muslim intellectuals.

As per Sinha’s own admission and the poster of the event that is visible in the photograph tweeted by Sinha, the convener of the event was the ex-adviser of GOI during the UPA era, Aziz Burney.

For those unaware, Aziz Burney is the same man who had authored the infamous book ’26/11 RSS ki Saazish?’. In the book, Burney had alleged that the RSS was behind the 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks, not terrorists from Pakistan. RSS had filed a case against him for the book, following which he had tendered an apology. It appears extremely dangerous that politicians are endorsing such conspiratorial people by attending events organized by them merely because of their personal enmity towards Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

As we had reported earlier, the US Ambassador had noted that the Congress party had deliberately chosen to pander to Muslim fears and was indulging in ‘dangerous politics’ for electoral benefits. One should also remember that senior Congress leader Digvijay Singh had endorsed the book blaming the RSS for the Mumbai Terror Attacks by attending the release of Burney’s book.

The event was also attended by Yashwant Sinha who recently claimed that he was the ‘closest’ man who had the capabilities required to the Prime Minister of the country.

It certainly appears dangerous that leaders of the proposed Mahagathbandhan are endorsing such a man which could cause great damage to the social fabric of the nation.
