New Delhi: Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday said that BJP and RSS are “fake Hindus” who use religion for their benefit.
Addressing the foundation day of the All India Mahila Congress, Gandhi said that the ideology of the Congress was completely opposite of the BJP and RSS and only one of the two ideologies can rule the country.
Asserting that Goddess Lakshmi stands for the power that helps one attain one’s goals and Goddess Durga stands for the power that protects, the former Congress chief said while his party had strengthened these powers when in government, the ruling BJP dispensation have diminished these powers, reports said.
” Ye kis prakar ke Hindu hain. Ye jhoote Hindu hain. Ye Hindu dharm ka prayog karte hain, ye dharm ki dalali karte hain, magar ye Hindu nahin hain.”
What kind of Hindus are they? They are fake Hindus. They use Hindu religion, they are brokers of religion, but they are not Hindus, Gandhi said, attacking the BJP-RSS.
Responding to Gandhi’s statement, BJP general secretary Arun Singh said: “Rahul Gandhi should not make these statements. He is totally disconnected from the ground. He has no information. That is the main problem.”
