Congress party becoming an arm of Christianity: CSHF on Rahul Gandhi's elevation
The Congress Secular Hindu Forum (CSHF), a pressure group within the Congress party to protect interests of Hindu population, has protested against elevation of party's general secretary Rahul Gandhi as Vice President of the party at the just concluded three-day Chintan Shivir in Jaipur.

In a strongly worded letter dashed to party supremo Sonia Gandhi, it has said that the elevation sends wrong signals to the people giving an impression that the Congress party is becoming an arm of Christianity.

It recalled that already the party Sonia Gandhi, who is heading the party for a record period, is a Christian and presently making her son as the second in the party would give an impression that Christians are practically taking over the party. Incidentally, it said that Rahul Gandhi’s name was proposed by another Christian leader A K Antony.

In his letter dashed to Sonia Gandhi, CSHF central committee general secretary K Ravi Kumar demanded Sonia Gandhi to take corrective measures so as to impress upon the Hindu population that the Congress party will take care of them too. For this, CSHF suggested that she should immediately nominate two more Hindu leaders as Vice Presidents of the AICC. This will boost the Congress party’s image among majority community of the country. Among two new Vice Presidents to be nominated, one should be from the Southern states and the second one may be from the Northern states, he added.

Kumar cautioned that in a country where more than 80 per cent of people are Hindus and the population of Christians constitutes only about 2 per cent, the people may believe the leadership of the major political party Congress is being hijacked by Christians.  He fears that this may be suicidal decision for the party in an election year.

CSHF also took objection to the Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde’s allegations from the AICC dais against RSS and BJP, accusing them of training Hindu terrorists in their meetings. It warned that it may also send wrong signals to the Hindu population of the country. CSHF lamented that Shinde’s comments were unnecessary and may lead to contempt of court as cases referred by him are before various courts. It is not expected from a Home Minister to make such irresponsible allegations from the party forum, it added.
