Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Friday said that all religions pay a price for the violence propagated by hate-mongers.
“Hindutvadis always spread hatred and violence and Hindus Muslims Sikhs and Christians pay the price but not anymore,” Rahul Gandhi said in a tweet.
Rahul Gandhi’s statement comes after a video clip circulated on social media saying that “Hindus should arm themselves like those seen in Myanmar, every Hindu must pick up weapons and conduct a Safayi Abhiyan.”
Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra had sought action against those people who incited hatred and called for ‘unleashing violence against followers of a particular religion’.
“Strictest action should be taken against those who incite hatred and violence of this kind. It is despicable that they should get away with making an open call to murder our respected ex-PM and unleash violence against people of different communities,” Priyanka said.
“Such acts violate our constitution and the law of our land,” she added.
