Minister says exploring rules to ban Khurshids book in Madhya Pradesh

Bhopal: After a volley of condemnations over a statement equating Hindutva to Jihadist version in the Congress leader Salman Khurshid's new book on Ayodhya, Madhya Pradesh minister Narottam Mishra said he is exploring possibilities to ban the book in the state.

Mishra called out Khurshid for his remarks saying he is in the league of those who are continuously utilising opportunities to divide Hindus or divide the country.

Khurshid, whose book was also questioned by colleague Ghulam Nabi Azad, told news agency PTI: "I have not called these guys terrorists, I have just said they are similar in distorting religion."

"Salman Khurshid's book is condemnable. They don't leave any opportunity to divide Hindus into castes or to divide our county... Was Rahul Gandhi not the first to go to those who said 'Bharat tere tukde honge'? Salman Khurshid is working on the same agenda," Mishra told reporters.

The Minister was referring to Kanhaiya Kumar's slogan at JNU when he was the student leader there.

"What (former Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister) Kamal Nath said - 'it's not 'mahan Bharat but badnam Bharat (not a great country but an infamous one)'. This is a part of the same thought process. They just want Hindus to get divided. It is a way to attack our faith. The Supreme Court said 'Hindutva' is a way of life... then what's there to question?" he asked.
