Havan and Puja in UP, promoting man who butchered a calf in Kerala: The Rahul-Priyanka brand of ‘secularism’

The glaring duplicity exhibited by Congress and its president Rahul Gandhi shows that they have little regard for the sentiments of Hindus. Anti-Hindu elements in the party are not punished, instead, they are promoted to superior ranks to continue promulgating their hostile propaganda against Hindus.

The former Kerala Youth Congress President Rijil Makkutty who was supposedly suspended from Congress for dragging a calf and brutally butchering it in full public view in 2017 is now seen aggressively campaigning for the party in Kerala for the ongoing Lok Sabha elections.

Photos of senior Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi and Congress president Rahul Gandhi socialising with Rijil Makkutty were posted by Rijil himself on his Social Media page.

Congress President Rahul Gandhi with Rijil Makkutty(Source: Facebook)

Rijil had uploaded his picture alongside Priyanka Gandhi on April 20, 2019, while she was on her visit to Kerala for addressing election rallies and public meetings. In another post uploaded by him on April 17, 2019, Rijil can be seen welcoming and greeting Congress president Rahul Gandhi.

In 2017, in defiance against the centre’s move to enforce a ban on cow slaughter, Rijil Makkutty along with his aides had dragged a calf and brutally slaughtered it. Cow is considered as a sacred animal by Hindus and the act of publically slaughtering a calf was meant to send a strong signal to Hindus and a pro-Hindu government at the center. Congress president Rahul Gandhi had then expressed his anguish and condemned the incident.

However, the charade of having a genuine concern for the feelings of Hindus stands exposed as Makkutty continues to remain involved in party activities. The agony expressed by Rahul Gandhi on Social Media as well as the suspension of Makkutty appears as an eyewash as no action seems to have been initiated against Rijil Makkutty.

The fact that Rahul had allowed Makkutty to continue to work for the Kerala State Congress unit asserts that he had no compunction in associating himself with someone who had wantonly hurt the Hindu sentiments by butchering a calf. The recent pictures of Rijil along with Rahul and Priyanka only reaffirm it.

In fact, within three weeks of the cow slaughter incident, though many Congress leaders claimed that there was no place for such elements in the party, Makkutty was seen presumably attending the plenary session of Congress. He was also seen carrying out other party-related activities in various social media posts.

The glaring duplicity exhibited by Congress and its president Rahul Gandhi shows that they have little regard for the sentiments of Hindus. Anti-Hindu elements in the party are not punished, instead, they are promoted to superior ranks to continue promulgating their hostile propaganda against Hindus. The party’s disposition towards Hindus and Hinduism has been quite obvious for some time now. Perhaps, this explains why Rahul Gandhi scurried away to Wayanad, a Hindu-minority region to file his nomination from the second seat.

There have been umpteen instances where Congress has appeared to betray Hindus. Recently, the Supreme Court verdict scotched the fabrication of ‘Hindu Terror’ concocted by the Congress party to malign the Hindus. A few days back, Congress had released a video in which they had depicted Hindu religious symbols of ‘Tripundra’ and saffron flags in a slanderous form to depict the Hindus as ‘extremists’.

Actor-turned-politician Urmila Matondkar, who has recently joined the Congress, was also quick to voice Congress’ stand vis-vis Hinduism. Vilifying Hinduism, Urmila claimed that of Hinduism has become the most violent religion in the world.

So, though Congress machinery may organise a large number of temple runs for their president and other assorted measures like havans and pujas to dispel suspicion among Hindus regarding their anti-Hindu disposition but incidents such as socialising with a cow butcher unmask their true intent and their apathy towards Hindu sentiments.
