Joshi slams Shinde over Hindu terror remark

Alleging that home minister Sushil Kumar Shinde’s Hindu terror remarks were a ploy to deflect attention from the failures of the government, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Tuesday  said Congress will have to bear the consequences of this insult inside and outside Parliament.

The party said it will bring up this issue in Parliament in the forthcoming Budget Session and boycott of Shinde is one of the proposals it is seriously thinking about. Senior BJP leader Murli Manohar Joshi  said that Shinde had insulted the nation, its tradition and its culture by alleging that RSS and BJP were involved in training terrorists.

‘What was the need for Shinde to make these remarks at the Congress Chintan Shivir (in Jaipur)? This only means that it was a well thought out strategy of Congress, this is a ploy to deflect attention from his failure to improve internal security, ensure peace and secure the borders,’ said Joshi.

The BJP leader cited the resolution of the Committee on Sanctions of the UN Security Council passed in June 2009 that Arif Qasmani, chief coordinator of LeT, had funded the Samjhauta blast and Al Qaeda had provided the manpower.

Joshi said that Pakistan Interior Minister Rehman Malik had stated in January 2010 that Pakistani terrorists were hired for the blast.Joshi said there was evidence to show that Pakistani terror groups and SIMI, and not any Hindu outfit, were involved in the Samjhauta Express blast.
