According to Union Minister Kiren Rijiju, it is extremely unfortunate that some citizens of the nation still consider the person who supports the Muslim League as Secular. Rijiju was criticising Congress leader Rahul Gandhi for his “completely secular” comments on the Indian Muslim League party. Rijiju also asked how Mohammad Ali Jinnah’s Muslim League which was responsible for India’s partition on religious lines be a secular party.
Taking to Twitter, the BJP leader said, “Jinnah’s Muslim League is a secular party? The party responsible for India’s partition on religious lines is a secular party? Extremely unfortunate that some people in India still consider the person who supports the Muslim League as Secular!”
The Indian Union Muslim League, is an ally of the Congress-led UDF in Kerala. Rahul Gandhi represented Wayanad in the Lok Sabha before being disqualified from Parliament.
Responding to a question on Congress’ alliance with the Muslim League during his interaction at the National Press Club in Washington DC, Rahul Gandhi said, “Muslim League is a completely secular party. There is nothing non-secular about Muslim League. I think the person (who sent the question) has not studied the Muslim League.”
Gandhi is currently on a visit to the US.
The BJP has criticised Rahul Gandhi for his remark stating that the Congress leader’s compulsion to remain acceptable in Wayanad that he called Muslim League a “secular party”.Rahul Gandhi claims that Jinnah’s Muslim League, the organisation in charge of dividing India along religious lines, is a’secular’ party. Despite his terrible reading skills, Rahul Gandhi is just being deceptive and evil here.Amit Malviya, a BJP leader, remarked in a tweet that it is also his obligation to maintain his popularity in Wayanad.
