BJP to give calling attention notice against Azad in RS

New Delhi : Amid the row over Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad drawing a parallel between the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) and the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS), the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is planning to give a calling attention notice against him in the Rajya Sabha.

Azad had yesterday kicked a row after he sought to draw a parallel between the RSS and ISIS, evoking sharp responses from the Hindutva outfit and the 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 an event organised by Jamiat Ulama-i-Hind.

The RSS in response slammed Azad, 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. (ANI)
