Senior Congress leader and former External Affairs Minister Salman Khurshid has created a stir with his latest book titled – Sunrise Over Ayodhya: Nationhood in Our Times.

In his book Khurshid writes that Sanatan dharma and classical Hinduism known to sages and saints were being pushed aside by a robust version of Hindutva, by all standards a political version similar to the jihadist Islam of groups like ISIS and Boko Haram of recent years.

The BJP reacted to Khurshid’s comments with IT chief Amit Malviya tweeting his reply

“Congress’s Salman Khurshid in his new book writes that Hindutva is similar to the jihadist Islamist groups like ISIS and Boko Haram. What else can we expect from someone whose party coined the term Saffron terror just to draw equivalence with Islamic jihad, to get Muslim votes?” Malviya tweeted.
