Without naming P Chidambaram, he charged the then Home Minister with giving "colour" to terrorism by coining the term 'saffron terror'. Responding to a calling attention motion on "alleged alteration of affidavit relating to Ishrat Jahan case" in the Lok Sabha, the Home Minister said "unfortunately, I have to say this that there was a flip-flop by UPA government in the Ishrat Jahan case."
Amid protests and slogan shouting by Congress members who had trooped into the Well of the House, Singh charged Chidambaram of coining the term "saffron terror" and "Hindu terror".
"Colour, creed and religion should not be associated with terrorism. Terror has no colour... The seculars gave colour to terrorism. Selective secularism cannot be accepted by the country," Singh said.
