The murder of VHP leader Arun Kumar Mahore in Agra even though it has been solved has refused to die down, and now controversial statements by BJP and other right-wing organisations are only stoking further controversy.
Singhvi, however, slammed the government for trying to communalise the entire situation and said that Katheria’s speech was a rabid, provocative and divisive speech.
“This is a union minister we are talking about, and this is not an isolated case, this is just a continuation of the template set by Sadhvi Maharaj and Sakshi Jyoti, and his met by eloquent silence by the Prime Minister,” said the Congress spokesperson Singhvi.
Responding to the question on Imran Masood, Singhvi said, “Two wrongs do not make a right. Masood was ostracized. The campaign which Rahul Gandhi went for was held much later, and we condemned the statement.”
Asaduddin Owaisi questioned the government and asked, “Where was this anger for Hindu Samaj when Hindus were murdered and women were molested in Haryana?”
Senior Lawyer Dushyant Dave said, “PM and BJP should introspect and stop the kind of statement which was made by a Member of State, but unfortunately we are a majoritarian state where majority escapes and minority is caught.”
