Nagaur (Rajasthan), Mar. 12 (ANI): The Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) on Saturday slammed Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad for comparing them with the terrorist group ISIS, saying that such a remark showed intellectual bankruptcy of the grand old party.
“Mr. Ghulam Nabi Azad comparing ISIS with RSS, exhibits the intellectual bankruptcy of Congress,” RSS leader J Nand Kumar said at a press conference here.
Azad had kicked a row after he sought to draw a parallel between RSS and ISIS, evoking sharp responses from the Hindutva outfit and BJP, which demanded an apology from him.
“So, we oppose organisations like ISIS, the way we oppose RSS. If those among us in Islam too do wrong things, they are no way less than RSS,” the Leader of Opposition in the Rajya Sabha said at a event organised by Jamiat Ulama-i-Hind. (ANI)
