ISIS, Hindutva equal, not equal: Salman Khurshid on his new book

After controversy erupted over the comparison between Hindutva and ISIS in his new book, senior Congress leader Salman Khurshid on Saturday clarified that he has said that they are similar, not equal.

The former Union Minister said that the enemies of Hinduism are those who are trying to defame the religion.

Talking to media persons during his visit to Kalki Dham, he said, “I am visiting Kalki Dham. I would not be here if I had any problem with any religion. I believe that Hinduism spreads peace in the world.” Is.”

He said, “It seems that some people are trying to defame Hinduism. They are enemies of Hinduism and are afraid that their truth will come out. They will ban any book which exposes their truth. does.”

“ISIS and Boko Haram have defamed Islam but no Islamic follower has opposed it. I didn’t say ISIS and Hindutva are same, I said they are same,” he said.

On Wednesday, former Union minister Salman Khurshid in his recent book “Sunrise Over Ayodhya: Nationhood in Our Times” was embroiled in controversy for allegedly “maligning Hinduism and comparing it to terrorism”.

Khurshid’s book on the Ayodhya verdict was released last week. It explored the landmark Supreme Court verdict on the Ayodhya dispute. Senior Congress leader Khurshid compared Hindutva to radical terrorist groups like “ISIS and Boko Haram”.

Reacting sharply to the book’s exception, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) spokesperson Sambit Patra on Friday said the Congress party’s attack on Hinduism is not a coincidence but an experiment. He alleged that whenever given an opportunity, the nature of Congress is to attack Hinduism.

Meanwhile, two Delhi-based lawyers have filed complaints with the Delhi Police against Khurshid for allegedly defaming Hinduism in his book and comparing it to terrorism.

The development comes at a time when assembly elections are due in the year 2022 in seven states of the country, Goa, Manipur, Punjab, Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Himachal Pradesh and Gujarat.
