What was written by Salman Khurshid
In the chapter ‘The Saffron Sky’, on page number 113, Khurshid writes, ‘The Sanatan Dharma and Classical Hinduism which the sages and saints know are being sidelined and such a version of Hindutva is being promoted which is like ISIS and Boko Haram on every scale. Jihadi is like a political form of Islamic organizations. He has claimed that Hindutva is used for political gains. It is mentioned in election rallies.

BJP said- a web of hatred against Hindus
The BJP on Thursday targeted the Congress over this and alleged that the opposition party was weaving a web of hatred against Hindus like a spider. Senior BJP leader and Parliamentary Affairs Minister Pralhad Joshi had urged Congress President Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi to take action against Khurshid for insulting “Hindu sentiments and Hindutva”. BJP IT cell chief Amit Malviya, in a tweet, outlining a paragraph from the book said, “Salman Khurshid of Congress, in his new book, compares Hindutva to jihadi Islamic groups like Boko Haram and ISIS. What else can be expected from the person whose party coined the word saffron terrorism for minority votes and to compare it with Islamic jihadists.’
