April. 17 (ANI): The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Tuesday accused the Congress party of defaming Hindu community on the global level. For its appeasement politics, the Congress defamed Hindus.

In his response, Rahul told Roemer that forget LeT, it is the Hindu terror of this country which is a bigger threat. "The conspiracy has been exposed", BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra said.

The Congress, however, responded by saying Mr. Gandhi never talked of any saffron terror.

Rahul, who began his three-day visit to Amethi and Raebareli in Uttar Pradesh earlier today, said while addressing a gathering, "Many people in India are farmers, if America's President says that China and Hindustan are the future of the world, it's only the farmers who have brought us to this position. It is our clear belief that terror can not be linked to any religion or any community or caste", party spokesperson P.L. Punia said. "Last month, the court had expressed surprise over the disappearance of the confessional statements of the accused".

The Sensex touched a high of 34,341.46 points and a low of 33,899.34 points during the intra-day trade. Earlier the gauge had gained almost 1300 points in the previous eight sessions.

He also demanded an apology from leader of opposition in Rajya Sabha and senior Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad.

Patra alleged that UPA home ministers Shivraj Patil, Sushil Kumar Shinde and P. Chidambaram had used the terms "saffron terror" and "Hindu terror", which he said had "defamed" Hindus. "Rahul Gandhi will be invited in that programme and, if he wants, he can attend it", BJP's district unit president Uma Shankar Pandey said.

Mr. Patra, however, called it "double standards" of the Congress as the party had welcomed a court order in favour of the 2G scam accused.

Asserting that the people will teach the Congress a lesson in the Karnataka Assembly poll, Mr. Patra, however, accused Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramiah of "hobnobbing" with activists of the Popular Front of India. "Why did not your government develop the historical places linked to his life?" he asked Rahul Gandhi.
