BJP silent on Varun Gandhi's hate speech
Posted on: 17-03-2009 , 04:: | DY365 Bureau

He has come under fire from the Congress, the Election Commission and some of his own party leaders for insulting the minority community and speaking dismissively about the father of the nation.

"All the
Hindus stay on this side and send the others to Pakistan. This is the Lotus hand, it will cut their throats after elections. They have names such as Karimullah, Mazurullah. If you see them in the night you would get scared," he had said in his rally on Tuesday.

Varun also said that anybody who dares to raise his hand on a Hindu, Varun Gandhi will chop his hand off. These remarks have made the grandson of Indira Gandhi and Jawaharlal Nehru's great grand son in an extreme right avatar.

These shocking remarks by the young Gandhi, who is fighting his first election from Pilibhit, led to the Election Commission issue him a notice. His father's party the Congress too jumped on the opportunity to point out the contrast to his cousin Rahul and target the BJP.

"It is not just immoral but also illegal. But why are you surprised? This is the ideology of the party that he belongs to and it is very shocking and condemnable," Congress spokesperson Abhishek Manu Singhvi said.

The BJP found it hard to defend Varun Gandhi. Varun, in his official reply to the District Magistrate, may have denied he had made communal remarks, but for this novice politician here is one important lesson -- the camera doesn't lie.
