Bengaluru: Even after losing out to the BJP in a humiliating manner in the Lok Sabha polls 2019, the Congress has not learnt its lessons. 

For a long, long time, the Congress has used Muslims as a vote bank and continues to do so, especially by putting down Hindus. 

In the latest episode of its stepmotherly treatment to Hindus, Congress Member of Parliament from Rajya Sabha Husain Dalwai slammed BJP MP Sadhvi Pragya Singh Thakur and also called out the BJP over Hindu terrorism. While talking to a news agency on Tuesday, the Congress MP said that instead of educating others on the matter of terrorism they (BJP) should first educate themselves.

He said, "You appoint Pragya Thakur into parliament when she was linked with various terror-related activities. Even lynching is terrorism. Not only Muslims but even Hindus are also responsible for spreading terror. They were also involved with the Bhima Koregaon violence."

Earlier, the former AICC president Rahul Gandhi had termed Sadhvi Pragya Singh Thakur as a “terrorist”. The remark came after Sadhvi Pragya’s comment referring to the assassin of Mahatma Gandhi, Naturam Godse, as a “deskbhakt” (patriot) in a Lok Sabha debate. Rahul in his tweet also expressed the session as a sad day in the Indian Parliament.

Almost 10 years ago, the then PM Manmohan Singh had hit headlines for another controversy of the same kind. He had said that Muslims have the first claim to the natural resources of India. 

Even now, the Congress is wilfully spreading rumours that the Citizenship Amendment Act affects Indian citizens and Muslims and strips them of their citizenship. In fact, CAA applies to only persecuted non-Muslims from the countries of Pakistan, Afghanistan and Bangladesh and to only those who have been residing in India hitherto December 31, 2014.
