Palakkad: Congress leader V.T Balram, MLA, Monday, in a Facebook post, reiterated his earlier remark that the relation between the Hindu religion and the Hindutva was akin to the one between the Islam and the Islamic State.
“I reiterate my earlier remark in ‘hundred times’ that the nexus between Hindu and Hindutva is akin to the one between Islam and Islamic State, the terrorist outfit,” Balram said in his FB post.
Balram began the post asking, “controversy? what controversy?” and went on saying that the Hindutva ideology had no links with the beliefs and cultural traditions of common people of Hindu faith.
"Hindutva is the nomenclature given to the ideology of a truly fascist organisation that Sangh Parivar is,” he said.
