In furtherance of the ongoing debacle against Salman Khurshid’s book “Sunrise over Ayodhya”, the author’s residence in Uttarakhand has been set on fire.
Khurshid, former minister of law and justice has been surrounded by controversies over making comparison of Hinduism with radical Islamist groups.
As many as 21 people have been booked for setting on fire the author and Congress leader’s house.
Taking to the internet to share the pictures of the fire, Khurshid has written, “Am I still wrong to say that this cannot be Hinduism?” Neelesh Anand, the DGP of the area has assured strict action against the perpetrators.
Senior Congress leader Shashi Tharoor has also commented on the incident and remarked it as “disgraceful”.
Mentioning that the intolerance level in the politics of our country is getting higher and higher, Tharoor has said that the ones in power must take actions to denounce this.
The saffron politics has led to many such incidents, and attracts eyes of people of very religion and belief. Many are commenting on the irony that in protest of being compared to radical groups, some are behaving in exactly the same radical way.
