Condemning Ahmad for his tweet that had Chhota Rajan and Anup Chetia been Muslims, the Modi government would have a different narrative, BJP said Congress is viewing even terrorists through a communal angle and those 'who love the country are losing their trust in it'.

"Congress started an unfounded debate over tolerance and intolerance before the Bihar election. Now it is trying to divide the country on communal lines. Congress should stop communal politics. It should stop its attempt to put communal colour to every issue for polarisation..." BJP Spokesperson Shahnawaz Hussain told a press conference.

"He (Ahmad) is a senior party leader and spokesperson and would not have made these comments without the approval of his party president and vice president. He has made a statement to divide the country on communal lines," he added.

He also highlighted the comments made by Congress leaders Salman Khurshid and Mani Shankar Aiyar in Pakistan while criticising the Narendra Modi government. Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi should break their silence and say if Ahmad's statement is the line of Congress too, he said.
