New Delhi: In a fresh trouble for Sushilkumar Shinde, a petition has been filed against the Union Home Minister in a Delhi court for his remark on “Hindu terror”.

According to the petition, the Shinde’s remark has hurt the sentiments of Hindus and can spread hatred amongst the community. The court has fixed the date of 28 January for the next hearing.

Meanwhile, the BJP is holding nationwide protest against Union Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde’s “Hindu terror” remark made at the Congress' Jaipur conclave last weekend. The BJP workers burnt effigy of the Sushilkumar Shinde and demanded immediate apology from UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi.

The protest in national capital was spearheaded by the newly elected BJP president Rajnath Singh along with leader of opposition in the Lok Sabha Sushma Swaraj.

Addressing the gathering at Jantar Mantar, BJP leader Sushma Swaraj asked Shinde to not cross his limits. She said politics can be practised to the extent that it benefits the Congress or even harms the BJP but "should not be taken to a level where national interest is affected".

The BJP workers are holding protest in Lucknow, Kanpur, Chandigarh and many other big cities apart from Delhi.
