” Salman Khursheed com pares Hindutva with ISIS and Boko Haram, Tharoor likened the Sanatan religion with Taliban and now Shivraj Patil compared the most revered book on humanity with fanaticism, ” said BJP in a statement.

” What Shivraj Patil said is a symbol of their party’s per verse and disgusting mindset. Bal Gangadhar Tilak saw Karma Yog – Shastra in Gita , Mahatma Gandhi saw Ana sakti . But the people of Rahul Gandhi’s Congress see jihad in it. Their mind is filled with vote bank, ” said BJP spokesperson and Rajya Sabha MP Sudhanshu Trivedi.

Congress disowned Patil’s remarks. AICC spokesperson Jairam Ramesh said, ” My senior colleague Shivraj Patil reportedly made some comments on Bhagavad Gita that are unacceptable. Subsequently, he clarified. Congress’ stand is clear Bhagavad Gita is a key foundational pillar of Indian civilization. ” Ramesh attached a page from Jawaharlal Nehru’s ‘Discovery of India ‘ to stress the salience of Bhagwat Gita.

Trivedi said Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge or Sonia Gandhi should respond to Patil’s comments.

Another BJP spokesperson Prem Shukla said Patil’s statement reflected the general mindset of Congress leaders and the party’s politics of appeasement.

” The remarks of the Congress leader show that the opposition party can stoop to any level for a vote – bank politics, ” he said.

Vishwa Hindu Parishad ( VHP ) said Congress leaders cannot think beyond Muslim appeasement.

” They justify jihad because of their personal interests and that is the reason why incidents of ‘ sartansejuda ( separation from the head ) are increasing in the country, ” VHP Joint General Secretary Surendra Jain said.

He said, ” Lord Krishna had taught Karma Yoga to Arjuna in the Gita and it talks about the welfare of the world. but if Congress leaders can see jihad in it, it is the result of their unfortunate thinking. “
