Taking exception to Parliamentary Affairs Minister’s demand that Bangladeshi writer Taslima Nasreen apologise to the Muslim community, BJP on Monday said Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi should also apologise on government’s controversial affidavit on Ram Setu.
”Union Minister PR Dasmusni has been reported asking Tasleema Nasreen to apologise for the comments in her book. We in-turn would like to ask the Prime Minister and Sonia Gandhi why have they not apologised for Centre’s stand on Lord Ram,” party spokesperson Rajiv Pratap Rudy said in a press conference in New Delhi.
The government, in its affidavit in the Supreme Court on Setusamudram project last year, had said that there was no evidence of existence of Lord Ram.
Rudy said ”Taslima is being treated as a football by the West Bengal and the Union government. The government should not hurt the honour of a women”.
”The secular credentials of the nation have been hurt by the Congress,” he said.
