New Delhi: A day after social activist Swami Agnivesh was allegedly attacked by BJP youth wing members in Jharkhand for his "anti-Hindu" stance, Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday hit out at the government through a pop quiz. Gandhi asked Twitterati to guess the name of the person who "uses hatred and fear to maintain the hierarchy of power".

In a veiled attack at the BJP-led central government, Gandhi said, "Pop Quiz — I bow to the most powerful in the line. A person's strength & power are all that are important to me. I use hatred & fear to maintain the hierarchy of power. I seek out the weakest & crush them. I rank all living beings based on their usefulness to me. Who am I? (sic)."

Police said the 78-year-old was attacked when he was going to participate in the 195th Damin Mahotsav at Littpara. The incident occurred just when he stepped out of his hotel.

"I am alive. I don’t know why they beat me. I think it was some conspiracy… I think BJYM (Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha) and Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) were attackers. They alleged that I was speaking against Hindus,” he said.

Gandhi further said that Congress is a party where "religion, caste or beliefs matter little" and there is "love for all human being".
