The ruling party BJP has posted a video which shows Rahul Gandhi calling terrorist organisation Jaish-e-Mohammad's leader as 'Masood Azhar JI'. The party slammed Rahul for giving so much of unnecessary respect to a terrorist.
During the speech, Rahul criticized the BJP and addressed Modi as a 56 inch chested man. He said, 'the National Security Advisor Ajit Doval went in an aircraft with Masood Azhar ji and handed over Masood Azhar there in Kandahar.'
The gesture of respect over a terrorist bought an instant outrage among the BJP leaders and Union minister Ravi Shankar Prasad threw a sarcastic statement that the Congress has always spoken illogical. He took an old example of Digvijay calling Osama Ji and Hafiz Saeed Sahab. In reply to that, the Congress chief spokesperson Randeep Singh Surjewala claimed that the ruling party is deliberately twisting Rahul's sensible speech.
Union minister Smriti Irani also reacted in a sarcastic way. She tweeted, "What is common between Rahul Gandhi and Pakistan? Their love for terrorists. Please note Rahul ji's reverence for terrorist Masood Azhar - a testimony to #RahulLovesTerrorists'.
The hashtag #RahulLovesTerrorists is all over the social media and condemned for his admiration towards the jeM group. BJP MLA has supported to the trending hashtag that a congress member from Telangana called Modi a terrorist and here, Rahul calls Masood Azahrd with a suffix Ji.
Netizens also expressed their anger and outrage by reminding Rahul how his father and grandmother died due to terrorist operations and Rahul is still having a soft corner for terrorism.
