    Are you denying that the Mosque was demolished by Hindu extremists since the conspiracy part hasn't been proved in court?

    Anyways, this is not a soccer match where we keep scores.

    The perceived threat is a retaliatory action by Hindu extremists in future at a terrorists attack. Just because it hasn't happened yet doesn't mean it ceases to be a valid threat.

    i am not denying or justifying the act of demolition of disputed structure in ayodhya

    so he want Indians to remain silent on terrorist attack towards them...and it also shows he is sure that there will be terrorist attack in Indian soil, or in other words his government cannot prevent a terrorist attack

    Rahul stands by his comments on Hindu terror

    New Delhi: Congress General Secretary is standing by his comments on Hindu terror leaked by WikiLeaks. The Congress party issued a statement on Friday saying that India should remain vigilant against terrorism of all kinds.


    "Rahul Gandhi's view is that terrorism and communalism of all types is threat to India. We need to remain vigilant, against acts of terrorism of all kinds no matter who commits them," the press statement said.


    The latest WikiLeaks cables on Friday revealed that Rahul Gandhi had voiced fears about the growth of Hindu extremists groups to US Ambassador Timothy Roemer in 2009.

    The cable contained details of Rahul's conversation with the envoy at a luncheon hosted by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh at his residence in July 2009 in honour of visiting Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.


    "Responding to the Ambassador's query about Lashkar-e-Toiba's activities in the region and immediate threat to India, Gandhi said there was evidence of some support for the group among certain elements in India's indigenous Muslim community," the cable notes.


    "However, Gandhi warned, the bigger threat may be the growth of radicalised Hindu groups, which create religious tensions and political confrontations with the Muslim community," it said.


    Rahul's comments have come under sharp attack from the Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP). Speaking to CNN-IBN, BJP spokesperson Tarun Vijay lashed out at Rahul saying that he was dividing the country on communal lines.


    "I think Rahul is dividing India on communal lines. He thinks if he speaks against Hindus, Muslims will vote for him in Uttar Pradesh. This is most unfortunate for the country's future," he said.


    A livid BJP also said that the Gandhi scion is helping Pakistan's cause.

    No, he never said Indians should remain silent on terrorist attacks. Terrorism is a law and order problem that needs to be tackled as such.

    Everyone is sure is that there will be another terrorist attack, I don't think there is any doubt in anyone's mind about that. The only question is when and where.

    No government can ever provide a guarantee that there will be no terrorist attacks during its rule, it is futile to expect that from any govt.

    'Congress leaders in race to make wild charges'

    New Delhi: The Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh (RSS) slammed Rahul Gandhi for his "shocking" remarks against Hindu groups, saying there was a "race" in the senior Congress leadership to project Hindus as terrorists.

    "It is shocking that there is a race in the senior Congress leadership to indirectly or directly support jehadi terror and to project Hindus as terrorists in this country, that too in gross violation of established diplomatic norms and procedures," senior RSS leader Ram Madhav said.

    According to Wikileaks, Gandhi had told US Ambassador Timothy Roemer that growth of radicalised Hindu groups was a bigger threat than Lashkar-e-Taiba.

    "Going to a foreign ambassador and talking with him about India's international issues is most shocking. It only betrays utter lack of knowledge of Indian reality as well as lack of knowledge of government diplomatic practices in a person who aspires to be whatever in this country tomorrow," Madhav said.

    He alleged that Gandhi was making "wild charges" against Hindus.

    Wikileaks has exposed how Congress has no qualms in using religion and caste and exploiting these sentiments for electoral gains, he alleged.

    "There is no secret now about Congress' politics of religion," he said.

    The RSS leader was referring to Roemer's predecessor David Mulford's remarks, who had said that Congress planned to polarise the electorate on religious and caste lines to gain votes, according to Wikileaks.

    Your priorities are wrong. If the majority gets radicalized there is no turning back from there. Look at PAK- radicalized islam is a part of the mainstream. A section of minority getting radicalized is actually much easier to handle than the other way around.
