Asim Goyal’s statement came after Rahul Gandhi’s statement, in which he explained the difference between Hinduism and Hindutva.
Haryana BJP MLA Aseem Goel has retaliated on senior Congress leader Rahul Gandhi’s statement of ‘Hindu and Hindutva’. Talking to the media, Asim Goyal said, ‘Rahul Gandhi himself does not know whether he is a Hindu or a Muslim or a Christian. There should be research on this topic. He should not worry about the country but should worry about himself and the geography of his family.
Asim Goyal’s statement came after Rahul Gandhi’s statement, in which he explained the difference between Hinduism and Hindutva. He said, ‘Hindus follow the path of truth, whereas Hindutvawadis loot in the name of religion’. Rahul Gandhi has expressed his views on Hindutva many times before. Earlier, he had said that Hindus believe that every person’s DNA is special and different, but Hindutvawadis believe that all Indians have the same DNA.
There is a constant conflict between Rahul Gandhi and BJP over the statements related to Hindu and Hindutva. On 23 December 2021, BJP leader and Union Minister A Narayanaswamy also targeted Rahul Gandhi. He said, “For the last few days, Rahul Gandhi has been continuously telling Hindus to be tolerant and Hindutva as greedy for power. Whenever elections come, Rahul Gandhi talks like this every now and then. But he is not a Hindu at all.
BJP’s Bengal unit president Sukanta Majumdar had also recently targeted Rahul Gandhi for his Hindu and Hindutva statements. Majumdar said, “When elections come, Rahul Gandhi presents himself as a Hindu. Well it is our achievement that today Rahul Gandhi is projecting himself as a Hindu. He wears janeu during elections, visits temples, but when elections are over, he goes to the beach, after elections he has nothing to do with Hindutva. ,
Actually, Rahul Gandhi had said at that time, ‘Hindutvawadis live their whole life in search of power. They don’t want anything except power and they can do anything for power.’
