Ujjain: Congress Lok Sabha MP Rahul Gandhi is seen visiting temples and religious places every day with the Bharat Jodo Yatra. Sometimes Rahul puts up photos on his social media bowing to the gods and sometimes uploads videos of conversations with priests. Recently, Rahul Gandhi shared a photo of him bowing at Ujjain's Mahakaleshwar temple. Amidst all this, the BJP has targeted Rahul Gandhi, calling him an 'election Hindu'.
Rahul Gandhi, son of a Catholic mother and a Parsi father, should stop this fancy dress drama in Hindi heartland.— Amit Malviya (@amitmalviya) December 2, 2022
When in Kerala or TN, he never bothered to visit a single Hindu temple. Visited minority religious places though.
His beliefs change depending on electoral maths… pic.twitter.com/zj0Gh2PZkW
Attacking Rahul Gandhi, BJP IT cell chief Amit Malviya wrote in a tweet, ''Rahul Gandhi, son of a Catholic mother and a Parsi father, should stop this fancy dress drama in the Hindi heartland. When Rahul was in Kerala or Tamil Nadu, he neither visited even a single Hindu temple nor any minority religious places. His beliefs change on the basis of electoral maths.'' At the same time, MP Culture Minister Usha Thakur targeted Rahul and said, 'It is my humble request that any spiritual activity should not be made a means of political gain. These activities are an integral part of our life. You go to temples, it is welcome, but you should also understand the importance of worship and the darshan of the deity.
At the same time, while campaigning in Ahmedabad for the Gujarat elections, Union Minister Smriti Irani has said that 'He is now reminding of Hinduism because he is losing the election and he knows that if he insults religion and Hindus, then he will not get a single vote from the people of this religion.' Accusing Rahul of pretending to be a Hindu, BJP IT cell chief Amit Malviya tweeted, "Rahul Gandhi is as honest a Hindu as Arvind Kejriwal is." This is just a showoff, there are electoral compulsions and nothing else.
