Case against Shinde to be heard over 'Hindu terror' remarks
Shinde had accused the BJP and RSS in January of running terror camps.
New Delhi: A defamation case against Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde will be heard in a Delhi court on Monday regarding his remarks on "Hindu terror". On January 20, at the Congress' Chintan Shivir in Jaipur, Shinde had accused the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) of running terror camps.
The minister had also cited an investigation report that proved BJP and RSS were supporting terrorism. He received sharp criticism from both BJP and RSS over the remarks who also and criminal complaint was filed against him.
BJP had demanded that sedition charge be pressed on Shinde. It said, "What Shinde has done is inexcusable. He has acted more like Pakistan's agent and not as our Home Minister. A case of sedition should be filed against him. He should resign from office."
Shinde had said, "Training camps of both BJP and RSS are promoting Hindu terrorism. Whether it is Samjhauta blast or Mecca Masjid blast or Malegaon blast, they plant bombs and blame it on the minorities." The BJP had slammed Shinde saying his statement on terror reflects an anti-Hindu mindset.
