02 July, 2024 10:17

Indian opposition leader and member of Indian National Congress Rahul Gandhi, while addressing the Lok Sabha, recited Durood Sharif.

While sending blessings on the Holy Prophet (PBUH), he said that all the great personalities spoke of non-violence, spoke of eliminating fear and said, “do not be afraid.” Gandhi quoted Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) to highlight that the Quran talks about fearlessness.

In his address, Gandhi further said that BJP leaders are spreading hatred, fear and violence. BJP leaders claim to be Hindus but at the same time spread hatred, he added.

Rahul Gandhi’s statement angered the BJP and Prime Minister Modi said that the opposition leader had accused the entire Hindu community of violence.

Narendra Modi demanded an apology from the opposition leader Rahul Gandhi for the statement. In response, Rahul Gandhi said that Narendra Modi and the RSS are not the entire Hindu society.

He said that BJP is always spreading fear and promoting violence and hatred.

Holding up pictures of Guru Nanak, Lord Shiva and Jesus Christ, the opposition leader referred to Hinduism, Islam, Sikhism, Christianity, Buddhism and Jainism to underline the importance of fearlessness. Gandhi also cited the attributes of Lord Shiva and the teachings of Guru Nanak, Buddha, Jesus Christ and Mahavir to state that all religions and great people say, “daro mat, darao mat” (do not be scared, do not scare others)”.

As the opposition leader’s remarks triggered an uproar from the treasury benches, it further led to the Chair striking it off record.
