Gujarat riots led to creation of Indian Mujahideen, says Cong; BJP fumes

New Delhi, Jul 21 (PTI): A senior Congress leader today sparked a fresh row saying Gujarat riots had led to creation of terror outfit Indian Mujahideen, evoking a sharp reaction from BJP which accused his party of playing the communal card for vote bank politics.

"Indian Mujahideen (IM) was formed after the Gujarat riots, says NIA in its charge sheet. Even now BJP and RSS will not desist from their communal politics?," Congress leader Shakeel Ahmed said on microblogging site Twitter.

Hitting back, BJP said the remarks were "stupid" and "reprehensible" as the Pakistan links of such outfits were well known and alleged that it was a "desperate" Congress which was actually trying to communalise the political scenario and playing with national security as it had "no answers for all the wrongs" it had done.

When contacted, the Congress General Secretary blamed the "communal politics of BJP for the chain reaction" on the issue of terror.

"This (2002 riots) was the reason behind the creation of Indian Mujahideen. If they foresake their communal politics, outfits like IM will cease to exist," Ahmed said.

BJP said it was well know that Pakistan has been aiding and abetting terror outfits that are active in India.

"There is this competition among the various Congress spokespersons and leaders to deliberately communalise the country's political scenario, because they have no answer to stinking corruption, malgovernance, price rice, unemployment, the general sense of suffering the people of India are having," Deputy Leader of BJP in Rajya Sabha Ravishankar Prasad said.

He said terror outfits were active in the country before the 2002 riots also.

"Why are they playing with national security. Is it not a fact that IM has links with Pakistan-based terrorist outfits.... Is it not a fact that much before 2002, there was SIMI with designs to usher in terrorist attacks in India. These are all too well known. Please dont play with national security.

"This competitive politics for vote bank to deliberately stoke communalism is reprehensible," he said.

Prasad said there is peace in Gujarat for the last 10 years and Muslims were becoming prosperous in the state.

"The growth rate of Muslims in Gujarat is the best in the country. We all know. Yet they are playing this kind of communal politics. It's only their desperation because they have no answers whatsoever for all the wrongs they have done in India for which Indian are seeking answers. They have no answer."

BJP leader M Venkaiah Naidu was also dismissive of the charge and asked Ahmed to stop arguing in favour of terrorists.

"What is this stupid argument....It has become a habit with some people. These organisations are there since the beginning.

"Pakistan is aiding, abetting , funding and training terrorists. Don't argue for IM and other such (terror) outfits. Some people say because of Bombay riots, some people say because of Gujarat (they have emerged)," Naidu said.

Ahmed, however, alleged that RSS and BJP were the main sources of communalism in the country

"So, the communal politics of BJP has led to a chain reaction. They should give up such politics," he said.

"The main source of communalism in the country is RSS and BJP, he alleged and added, "Those who want to stop communal politics should build pressure on BJP and RSS".

    If Jinnah was behind the partition of Great India, why Gandhiji was shot dead? RSS, should have killed Jinnah - not Gandhiji.
    Still, RSS believe and claim that Gandhiji was the man who divide the country.

    This is the reason, one of our top rated politician and Indian neta none other than Shriman Adhvaniji, praised Jinnah mouthful and gave him a clean chit that Jinnah was a pure Secular!

    And it happened in Pakistaan. What a joke?

    So, behind the birth of every terror outfit either it is IM, LET,SIMI or RSS there must be a big story.

    Truth is bitter, but don't try to play communal politics.2 wrongs doesn't make one right. IM is still fictious organisation while riots in Gujrat 2002 are real. For Modi 3000 deaths are like puppies coming under wheel. It was just an accident for his administration.

    I think, the demolotion of Babri Masjid gave birth to terrorism in India. Until then we never heard or read about blasting bombs in our country. And the 2002 Gujarat riots kept the momentum continued. Advani and Mode are to be blamed for all these unfortunate happenings in our country.

    Let the expats / NRI Indians, who are the back bone of Indian economy express their views on the effect of babri masjid demolition on their life. Some politicians with self interest and charas smoking fundamentalist did something very idiotic actions. The ideology is same who killed Ram bhakt Mahatma Gandhi for their political benefits. India is progressed, the youths are educated, no more wearing chaddies and wielding lathis. Indians are controlling some of the major multinational organisations. Indians are counted as intelectuals. Pl. stop those old idiots exploiting the un educated non Brahmin youths in the name of religion for the intrest of Brahmins.

    Dear Ismail Saab, I think we need to go much back into the history, not just recent ones.......

    70 years back, Mr. Mohd. Ali Jinnah, who divided the country in the name of religion... Later his countrymen did ethnic cleansing of Pandits from J&K. If these things would not have happened, BJP or Jana Sangha would not have been formed....

    Of course, we can further think beyond 70 years, to know why Mr. Jinnah behaved like that?

    Anyway, I feel as long as we "aam aadmi" are not united, rulers keep dividing us for their benefits.. You can see the highly educated personnel are fighting in this forum.. When will we learn???
