The Congress on Sunday slammed Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) patron Ashok Singhal over his ‘Hindu nation’ remark saying that what he had said reflects his ‘narrow-minded’ ideology.
“This country is proud to be a secular and inclusive one. We do not discriminate on the basis of creed, caste or religion. What Ashok Singhal has said reflects that he is extremely narrow-minded,” said Congress leader Shobha Oza.
Singhal sparked another controversy on Saturday by saying that India would be a ‘Hindu’ nation by 2020.
“I was at the Sai Baba Ashram where Sai Baba told me by 2020 the entire country will be Hindu and 2030 the entire world will be Hindu. I feel that revolution has started,” he said at a function in the national capital.
He also said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led NDA Government has put an end to 800 years of ‘slavery’.
