“24×7 Hindu-Muslim Hatred Being Spread”: Rahul Gandhi In Delhi

Rahul Gandhi-led Congress’s Bharat Jodo Yatra reached Delhi today

New Delhi:

Congress MP Rahul Gandhi today attacked the BJP government for allegedly spreading hate using religious differences as a weapon. During a speech at the Red Fort after the Bharat Jodo Yatra (unite India march) reached the monument this evening, Mr Gandhi said, “Hindu-Muslim hatred is being spread 24×7 to divert your attention from real issues.”

Congress leaders Sonia Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi Vadra joined the yatra this morning. Later, actor Kamal Haasan came to walk with the Gandhis when the march was nearing the Red Fort.

“I have walked 2,800 km, but did not see any hatred. When I turn on the TV, however, I see violence,” Mr Gandhi said.

“The media is a friend. But it never shows the reality of what we say because of a gag order from the backstage…But this country is one, everyone wants to live in harmony,” he said.

Mr Haasan, the founder of the Makkal Needhi Maiam, said initially people came to him to say that joining the Congress’s Bharat Jodo Yatra and walking with Mr Gandhi would be a costly political mistake.

“I asked myself, this is the time the country needs me. Kamal, my inner voice said, bharat todne ki nahi jodne ki madad karo (help unite the country, not break it),” Mr Haasan said.

The actor did not speak about political alliances. His party, which contested its first election in Tamil Nadu in April 2021, had lost the electoral battle.
