Gandhi also attacked the BJP and said the party was trying to divide Uttar Pradesh.
BJP leader Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi tweeted: "Congress embossed the stamp of "made in al-Qaeda "on the beard and cap of Indian Muslims in last nine years......Keeping the tradition of congress alive now Rahul baba stamps them 'made in ISI'..what a SECULAR SPIRIT."
Criticising Gandhi for his remarks, BJP spokesperson Ravi Shankar Prasad told media, "It is a very irresponsible statement."
The BJP said said it would complain to the Election Commission (EC) against Gandhi's remarks.
Gandhi on Thursday claimed Pakistan's intelligence agencies were contacting some Muzaffarnagar riots victims.
"A couple of days ago, an intelligence officer walked into my office. I asked him what is happening in Muzaffarnagar? He told me that people from Pakistan are talking to few Muslim youths whose brothers or sisters were killed in Muzaffarnagar," Gandhi said while addressing a rally in Indore on Thursday.
"The officer told me that he was trying to convince victims not to get swayed by them," he said.
Gandhi attacked the BJP and said: "The BJP thought they will not be able to come to power in Uttar Pradesh unless Hindus and Muslims fight in the state...So they did it."
Several people were killed in communal violence at Muzaffarnagar district in Uttar Pradesh this year.
