Adopting an aggressive tone over the debate on ‘Hindu terrorism’, the Shiv Sena on Monday said India is “one hundred per cent a Hindu nation” and the community has no reason to spread terror in its own country.
The statement comes days after Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh accused Congress of weakening the fight against terror by coining the term ‘Hindu terrorism’.
“Giving terror a saffron colour and playing politics over it was a cunning and selfish move. Terming Hindus as terrorists and putting a veil over green terror sponsored by Pakistan is being dishonest towards your own country,” an editorial in Sena mouthpiece ‘Saamana’ said.
“India basically belongs to the Hindus and one hundred per cent it is a Hindu nation. Hindus have no reason to spread terror in their own country,” it said.
