New Delhi: Congress general secretary Digvijay Singh and External Affairs Minister Salman Khurshid might have rallied behind Union Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde to endorse his ‘Hindu terror’ remarks, but Congress Party has distanced itself from the minister’s statement.

When asked about Shinde’s remarks that Hindu terrorist are being promoted at the camps of RSS and BJP, Congress spokesperson Janardan Dwivedi said, “Unhone Anjane me ye kah diya hoga (It seems that he(Shinde) was not serious while making this statement.).”

Earlier on Sunday, Home Minister Shinde at a Congress meeting in Jaipur had said, "We have got an investigation report that be it the RSS or the BJP, their training camps are promoting Hindu terrorism. We are keeping a strict vigil on all this."

Dwivedi also made it clear that terror has nothing to do with any religion. Terrorism is only terrorism.

The Minister’s statement sparked a political row and livid BJP sought unconditional apology from him and the Congress Party. Sinde was backed by the many Congress leaders and Ministers of Union Cabinet.
