With 2019 Lok Sabha Elections only weeks away, Prime Minister Modi has been on a blitzkrieg against the opposition and especially Congress. Today, while delivering a speech at a public rally in Wardha, Prime Minister Modi launched a scathing attack against the Congress for its coinage of the shameful term “Hindu terrorism”.
PM in Wardha: Iss desh ke croron logo par Hindu atankwad ka daag lagane ka prayaas Congress ne hi kiya hai. Hazaro saal ka itihaas, Hindu kabhi aatankwad kare aisi ek bhi ghatna hai kya? Angrez itihaaskaro ne bhi kabhi Hindu hinsak ho sakta hai is baat ka zikra tak nahi kiya hai. pic.twitter.com/WRsVC8O9Gb

Prime Minister Modi, while speaking in Wardha said that Congress had tried its best to blame the crores of Hindus of this country by coining the term “Hindu terror”. He asked if there is even one incident where a Hindu had been involved in an act of terrorism. Prime Minister Modi took the attack further and said that even British Historians never said that Hindus could be terrorists and indulge in such violence.
Prime Minister Modi’s scathing attack didn’t stop there. He then spoke about Rahul Gandhi contesting from a Hindu minority constituency like Wayanad.
जिसको कांग्रेस ने आतंकवादी कहा है वो अब जाग चुका है।
शांतिप्रिय हिंदू समाज को,
पूरे विश्व को परिवार मानने वाले हिंदू समाज को आतंकवादी कह दिया।
इसी के कारण वो मैजोरिटी से भागकर माइनॉरिटी वाली सीट में शरण लेने के लिए मजबूर हो गए हैं: पीएम मोदी #IndiaSaysNaMoAgain

He said the people who were branded as terrorists by Congress (Hindus) have now woken up to reality. In a tone of exasperation, Prime Minister Modi said that Congress branded the very people as terrorists who consider the entire world as their own family.
The Prime Minister said that it is because of this that Congress had to run away from a ‘majority’ seat and seek shelter in a ‘minority’ seat, hinting at Rahul Gandhi fighting from the Hindu-minority seat Wayanad in addition to Amethi, the Gandhi bastion, which has a Hindu majority.
Interestingly, a sting video had surfaced where Times Now had revealed that a senior Congress leader had himself admitted on tape that Rahul Gandhi’s chances of winning Wayanad is higher because of the non-Hindu majority of the constituency and also because Amethi is not looking like a dicey bet.
The people of Amethi themselves have shown extreme displeasure with the Congress party and especially, the Nehru-Gandhi family. In a report that had surfaced earlier, Rashid, whose father had proposed Rajiv Gandhi and Sonia Gandhi’s candidatures back in 1991 and 1999 respectively, has decided to fight as an independent candidate against Congress scion. “What is the point? That they just want our votes? They are scaring us and the BJP? They should focus on development,” said Rashid.
Another local said that the Congress and the Nehru-Gandhi family do not wish to empower the Muslims in the region because Muslims are more in number. “They know that if we become strong, in future we could become a threat to them that a Muslim from here could become an MP,” said an Amethi resident. Another local, voicing his resentment, said that they have given 70 years to Congress and they didn’t do anything. What will they do now?
As we had opined earlier, Rahul Gandhi choosing Wayanad has a deeper civilisational message for the voters of India. It shows, that the Congress party would much rather prefer an India where non-Hindus form a majority as compared to the Prime Minister, who chose Varanasi as his second seat, as a civilisational message for his voters. The Congress party had tried its best to concoct the “Hindu Terror” narrative that had fallen flat on its face. Now, with the Prime Minister mounting this scathing attack on Congress and its anti-Hindu legacy, it remains to be seen what effect this would have on 2019 Lok Sabha Polls.
