Attack on fundamentalism and corruption, Congress President Sonia Gandhi said majority and minority communalism are dangerous and must be defeated and favoured fast-tracking all corruption cases, including those of politicians. Addressing the Congress Plenary, she dwelt at length a number of corruption charges hitting the party and the UPA government headed by it and the controversy surrounding Rahul Gandhi’s comments about Hindu radicalism being “bigger threat” than groups like Lashkar-e-Taiba. “The Congress party makes no distinction between organisations of the majority and of the minority communities who indulge in communalism and related acts of terrorism. They are all dangerous, they must all be defeated.
“It is the abuse of religion and to spread hatred and bigotry. It is the abuse of religion to polarise our society and to divide us.” Dwelling on the issue of corruption over which the government and the party have been under attack, the Congress President expressed concern over the fact that it has “become a disease” at all levels throughout the society. She underlined the need for instituting a new system of fast tracking all cases that concern corruption by public servants, including politicians.
Rahul Gandhi feels that the “the bigger threat (to India) may be the growth of radicalized Hindu groups, which create religious tensions and political confrontations with the Muslim community”. While comments from Congress Party leaders about internal threats from radical Hindu groups are not new. The candid disclosures to Americans of such critical observations about internal security also comes at a time when Pakistan continues its defense of terrorism as a state policy, articulated most recently by former military dictator Pervez Musharraf, who suggested that there will not be any roll-back of the policy unless the Kashmir issue is settled. India, with its vast Muslim community living side-by-side with Hindus, was having difficulty identifying the sources of radicalization, Narayanan is cited as explaining, adding that even Muslim leaders were confessing they were “losing control of their flock.”
I am asking to Mr. Gandhi first, if he thinks that Hindu radicalism is more threat in India for communal harmony than what they are doing to resolve it. If 60% of population is threat for his own country than who are most community to suitable for this country’s communal harmony. If he is ok on his words than he is trying to play with sentiments Hindu community who are majority in this country if they don’t forget it so. If you are the top politician of country than you have license to speak anything about our people, I think so because there are lot of example recently have been set by our top politicians. Once speak and again sorry I taking back my words. I think they forget the proverb “Words from your mouths once out, that will never back”.
