In a shocking revelation by Wikileaks, Rahul Gandhi, the self-confessed to-be-PM and Congress’s last hope, has been found to claim that Hindu radicals are a bigger threat than the Muslim terrorists.
Just last week, Congress leade Digvijay Singh pointed out that Hindu organizations may have a hand behind the killing of ATS Chief Hemant Karkare, who the entire world knows was killed by Islamic terrorists during the Mumbai attacks. The dust to that controversy hasn’t even settled yet when the news of Rahul Gandhi calling Hindu radicals worse than Islamic terrorists came out today.
According to Wikileaks, Rahul Gandhi told a US ambassador Timothy Roemer in 2009 that there was some support among Indian Muslims for militant organizations such as Lashkar-e-Taiba. But he went on to point that the greater threat to India could come from the growth of radical Hindu groups.
One feels that because of his foreign upbringing, maybe Rahul Gandhi has forgotten the fact that India is also known as “Hindustan”, or a land of Hindus. Claiming that Hindu organizations will harm the country, that too more than the known Muslim terrorist groups can, only smacks of a desire to win minority votes. Rahul’s statement also shows how incompetent, inexperienced and childish he really is as of now, and to consider that this person may lead India some day, just sends shivers right down the spine.
Rahul’s statement is all the more shocking because it came just months after entire world witnessed terror by Islamic fundamentalists in Mumbai.
After Rahul’s disaster performance in Bihar elections, Congress was looking forward to build Rahul’s brand image, and this incident will certainly make their task much more difficult.
