Rs. 21 cr bounty for Salman Khurshid’s head over Rahul Gandhi like Lord Rama remark

A seer has reportedly announced a Rs.21 crore bounty on Congress leader Salman Khurshid’s head for likening Rahul Gandhi to Lord Ram.
The Congress leader has, however, defended his remarks, saying he does not need instructions from Nagpur, a reference to RSS headquarters, to praise his leader Rahul Gandhi.
“Lord Ram belongs to all. The BJP should not make this debate controversial. Earlier also Lord Ram has been called as ‘Imam-e-Hind’ and he belongs to all religions,” Khurshid told reporters in Meerut on Tuesday
“No one can replace God but everyone can try to walk the path shown by him. Why should anyone object if I say someone is following that path,” he said. Khurshid later told PTI, “I am willing to say whatever they believe I have said. Have I said that Rahul Gandhi is like Ram? Have I said it? I am willing to say it.”
Asked about reports claiming that a seer had offered Rs 21 crore for his beheading, Khurshid retorted, “This will happen if someone takes the name of Lord Ram in this country? We can’t take the name of Lord Ram? Can’t we appreciate Lord Ram?”
Slamming the opposition party leaders for their show of “sycophancy”, the BJP said comparing a person out on bail in a corruption case, a reference to the National Herald probe, to a God worshipped by so many people not only hurts the feelings of Hindus but also the entire society.
BJP spokesperson Gaurav Bhatia targeted the Congress at a press conference following Khurshid’s remarks, another party spokesperson Shehzad Poonawalla, in a swipe at Congress leaders, said they put “parivaar ki bhakti” (devotion to family) above “bhagwaan and rashtra ki bhakti” (devotion to God and nation).
