'Hindu terrorism' in India is a fact: Salman Khurshid
23 January, 2013
NEW DELHI: Indian External Affairs Minister Salman Khurshid on Tuesday backed Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde's statement on "Hindu terrorism", saying it was based "entirely on facts" made available by investigative agencies.
Khurshid, however, said that terror has no religion and colour.
"Let me just say this to you very clearly that our stated position, that is shared fully by the home minister and past home minister, is based entirely on facts as the investigative agencies have made available to the government," Khurshid told reporters here.
Unfazed by BJP's demand for sacking Shinde for his statement, Khurshid said, "The attempt to divert attention and to push it in a particular pre-meditated direction by some people was obviously repudiated by the information that was available with the Home Ministry and that is the context in which all these statements are made".
