AICC Presidential candidate Kharge suggests ‘celebrating Muharram’

Bhopal (Madhya Pradesh) – On 12th October, All India Congress Committee Presidential candidate Mallikarjun Kharge seemed to mock Muharram. He made the Muharram reference when the media asked him whether the Congress would field him or Rahul Gandhi as its Prime Ministerial face in 2024.

To this, Kharge said, “There is a saying – Bakrid mein bachenge to Muharram mein nachenge”. First, let these elections get over and let me become President, and then we will see”. BJP Spokesperson Shehzad Poonawalla shared Kharge’s video and said, “Firstly, Muharram is not a celebration but a mourning ! This is highly insulting to Muslims. Kharge’s statement is highly objectionable”.

Editorial Viewpoint

  • It seems to have become a routine matter for leaders of all political parties to ‘express’ their ‘views’ on subjects they know nothing about !
  • When such leaders speak on religion or Dharma without any study whatsovever, they do not even realise the extent of harm they are doing to themselves and their parties.
  • In the coming ‘Hindu Rashtra’, the study of Dharma will be made a part of school curriculum, so that at least the coming generations do not repeat the mistakes of their ‘elders’ !
