'Hindu terror': Petition in court against Shinde
A Delhi court on Monday is likely to take up a petition seeking criminal complaint against Union Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde on his 'Hindu terror' remark.
"Professor Ved Prakash Sharma has filed the petition seeking direction to the police to register an FIR against Shinde over his 'Hindu terror' jibe made earlier this month during the Congress's national summit in Jaipur," India Today reported.
At the Chintan Shivir of the Congress in Jaipur, the Home Minister had accused India's main opposition Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and its ideological patron Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) of promoting Hindu terrorism in India in their training camps.
"On one hand we are trying to restore peace in India and looking into injustices on minority or stopping infiltration while on the other hand the training camps of BJP or RSS are looking after promotion of Hindu terrorism in their camps," said Shinde speaking at the Congress conclave on Jan 20.
Later when pressed for clarification, he told media that what he said is nothing new but had come out in media many times.
The BJP slammed Shinde for his comment and demanded his resignation.
The BJP on Thursday launched nationwide protests against Shinde's remark.
