JAMMU: Coming out in support of Congress functionary Salman Khurshid’s new book, in which he compared Hindutva as propagated by some to radical jihadi groups such as the ISIS and the Boko Haram, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) president Mehbooba Mufti on Saturday said there is nothing wrong in comparing political parties with groups killing people in the name of religion.
Mehbooba asserted that the real Sanatan Dharma doesn’t teach communalism and accused RSS-BJP combine of hijacking Hinduism and Hindutva, and making people fight against each other all over the country.
“Those who make Hindus and Muslims fight in the name of religion can be compared with ISIS or any other (terror group) because both of them kill people in the name of religion,” Mehbooba said.
Referring to ‘Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam‘ (the world is one family, as taught by Hindu scriptures), she said: “Sanatan Dharma teaches us that the world is one family. What BJP and RSS are trying to teach us is neither Hindutva nor Hinduism.”
