Salman Khurshid’s home vandalised, set on fire days after controversy over his book on Ayodhya

Salman Khurshid’s house set on fire

NEW DELHI:  Days after Congress leader Salman Khurshid drew a parallel between Hindutva and terror groups, his home at Nainital was vandalised and set on fire on Monday.

According to eyewitnesses, the miscreants had a BJP flag in their hands and were raising communal slogans. They also pelted stones before setting the house on fire.


Khurshid has been the target of some Hindu organisations after he compared Hindutva with radical Islamist groups like ISIS and Boko Haram in his book, “Sunrise Over Ayodhya: Nationhood in Our Times”.

Former Congress President Rahul Gandhi has also drawn a difference between Hinduism and Hindutva. He had said, “There is a difference between Hinduism and Hindutva, because if there was no difference, the name would have been the same. In today’s India, the BJP and RSS have spread hatred while the Congress has spread brotherhood and love.”

Congress leader Mani Shankar Aiyar went a step further on the issue, saying eighty per cent Indians who believe in Hinduism are real Indians and the rest of the people are non-Indians.

Aiyar said, “There is a difference between Hinduism and Hindutva. I would like to add that those who believe in Hinduism are hundred per cent Indians. All of us, who are residents of this country are Indians. But there are some people in our midst, who are in power today, 80 per cent of Hindus are the real Indians and the rest of the Hindus are non-Indians.”

A Delhi-based lawyer has also filed a complaint against Khurshid for comparing Hindutva with Jihadi Islam. -IANS


    • anouymous Hindu gutter rat,

      Oh look, the RSS hindu sh1teater is trying to be sarcastic and clever but fails. You monkey worshippers are beyond shameless…even with solid proof, Hindus insist on denials and lying. This is typical Hindu behavior, lying, criminality and violence. What else can they do when confronted with the truth? Hindus are uncivilized low IQ guttersnipes and devout cowards too. No wonder so many Hindutva types adore and praise Hitler.
      Hinduism, and Hinndutva, same fascist sh1t, slightly different smell.

    • Anonymous Hindu gaandu,

      Typical Hindu liar. Hindus terrorists are the ones who attacked Khurshids house for speaking the truth. In fact Hinduism, not just Hindutva is comparable to Nazism and fascism.
