Unapologetic Varun Gandhi plays Hindutva card

"In up atmosphere of fear. This is political conspiracy against me. In that tape there is no my words not my voice. The tape is manipulated. I myself want to know about the tape. The tape was recorded on fifth march and shown on 11th march. I did not us any communal words. In that tape face was mine but voice is not mine. I did not use any communal language. This is not my Culture tradition. How can I do this mistake?"

A day after the Election Commission filed a case against him for his vitriolic remarks against the Muslims, an unrepentant Varun Gandhi said he is the victim of a political conspiracy. He said he is well aware of his roots as a proud Gandhi, an Indian and a Hindu in equal measure.

In a brief statement to the media, Varun said there was an effort to malign his faith.

He also said that anyone attempting to identify with Hinduism was inevitably branded communal.

"I am a victim of political conspiracy," the young Gandhi, son of sitting Pilibhit MP and former central minister Maneka Gandhi, said on Tuesday. "I am a proud Gandhi, an Indian and a Hindu in equal measure," he said.

"Nothing I have said was to incite anybody. There is a rigorous attempt to malign my faith," he said, adding "each time anyone tries to identify with Hindusim, he is being branded communal."

"I am pro-India, I am not against anybody," he said.

Meanwhile, the BJP's allies are divided over this issue. While the party's ally in Maharashtra, the Shiv Sena has patted him on the back for his speech, Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar has condemned Varun's remarks, terming them disrespectful.

Nitish says he is sure the BJP will take appropriate action against Varun Gandhi.

On the other hand, BJP leader Venkaiah Naidu has said that Varun's tape has been doctored and what he has said has been twisted.
