Salman Khurshid-Mani Shankar Aiyar's anti-India remarks in Pakistan: Why the top Congress leadership silent?
In democracy it's common that opposition parties sometimes oppose for the sake of being in opposition, while claiming that they are supporters of constructive opposition. However opposition is always considered healthy in a democratic set up even if the oppositions are made purely for the sake of opposing.

But what if opposition starts hating the ruling party and become so intolerant of the Prime Minister that they decide to go against Indian interests and that on enemy's soil? Doesn't it appear unbelievable? But yes it's true. Indian National Congress has stooped to such a low level. In an act of intolerance against PM Narendra Modi, its senior leaders have indulged in anti-national acts while touring Pakistan, a country which is a known sponsor of terrorism in India.

Salman Khurshid, the former Union external affairs minister during his Pakistan visit last week criticized Indian government while holding it responsible for obstructing the peace talks. He said Pakistan is flying pigeons of peace whereas India is shooting them down. He further lauded Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif as an apostle of peace and criticized Indian Prime Minister, Narendra Modi. Reportedly Khurshid, while speaking about Nawaz Sharif's presence at the swearing in ceremony of PM Modi, had said, "If you look back at the first face-to-face between our PMs, your PM took a brave, farsighted decision. What we said and did made things uncomfortable for Pakistan after the visit."

Does it look like a behavior of an ex-external affairs minister? Has he forgotten the fact ignoring the political differences, one should always represent 'India' in a foreign country? What's the message Khurshid wanted to give to the international community? That Pakistan is a peace seeker and India is a rough country! Does the hatred and intolerance towards Narendra Modi is so acute that he forgot his national duty and obligations being an Indian citizen?

Did Salman Khurshid forget that it was the same Nawaz Sharif under whose regime the Kargil attack happened while backstabbing former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee's good will gesture through Lahore his Yatra? Hadn't then Pakistani army mutilated Indian soldiers' dead bodies? Are ceasefire violations not happening under Nawaz Sharif's rule?

How could Khurshid forget recent Udhampur and Gurudaspur attacks by Pakistan sponsored terrorists? Did he also forget that the same Nawaz Sharif referred former Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, in whose government he was MEA, as 'Dehati Aurat'?

Another senior Congress leader and former Union minister Mani Shankar Aiyar has even gone a step ahead to Salman Khurshid.

In an interview to Pakistan's Duniya TV, Aiyar , while responding to anchor's question on what should be done to resolve issues between India and Pakistan, said that bring the Congress government in power and remove PM Narendra Modi. He added that there is no other way. When the Pak TV anchor told Aiyar that this can be done by his party (Congress) only, Aiyar said that they would do it and asked the anchor to wait till that time.

How Pakistan can help you in defeating Narendra Modi? What has happened to you Mr. Aiyar ? Are you all right?

The question is why the Congress is silent over the controversial statements of their senior leaders that have embarrassed the country? The party has distanced itself from Khurshid's and Aiyar's comments but it is not looking serious enough to take action against them for their serious anti-national acts.

Thus an obvious question arises, whether the top bosses in the Congress also endorsing these anti-national deeds of their leaders. Does it mean that the Congress Party is so intolerant of Narendra Modi that they have started endorsing anti-India activities?

In last night TV debates the Congress spokespersons were defending both of their senior leaders while giving irrelevant logics. The Congress chief Sonia Gandhi and it's Vice-President Rahul Gandhi are maintaining mysterious silence over what these two leaders have said despite the fact that they are in favour of Prime Minister's counter comment on every statement made by any BJP leader, which they consider inappropriate.

Congress iis known to be tolerant of its leaders stoopng so low ..During elections we have seen Digvijay Singh in same class as Mani Shankar Iyer the Arrogant and Hamid Ansari who has in one stroke ebalues the office of V P and office of PM . When you start suspecting that the man is musim first and nationalist later , people start talking about religion but Hamid Ansari goiing against India's foreogn policy had made utterances just to show that hee is muslim first. I thik there should be online petion to President of India to eprimand Hamid Ansari who instead of behaving as V P of India took out his grudges against Modi.Despite massive mandate Hamid Ansari shows small mind that he is that he is unable to digest Modi's success and remains typical muslm politician and not dignified Vice President. That Iyer is mad cap we know from hs ealier uttences and he will never become respectable and now he is shamelessly back tracking to show what a petty minded character he is.CCongress President may even be happy that Modi 's reputation is brought down in Pakistan but does she know that Congress als gets implicated ? And look double standards of Sonia & Rahul If there are utternaces from some ignorat guys from BJP, they jump and invoke secularism and all the nonsense they are known for many yeas as appeases of muslim they are only reinforcing that appeasement now extends to neighbouring country's muslims to the exent of damaging dignity of PM and V P office. How come they are tolerating this ?? Their hypocrisy is becoming even more clear to Indian public and another super hypocrites Communists are totally silent on Hamid and Mani.Indian people make anote and kick them out aas son as possible in next elections
