‘Hindu terror’ a conspiracy against India, Congress wanted ‘Christian rule’: Subramanian Swamy

Rajya Sabha MP and Bharatiya Janata Party leader Subramanian Swamy on Monday hit out at the Congress party, accusing it of working against the country. Speaking to Times Now after a special NIA court acquitted all five accused in the 2007 Mecca Masjid blast case, Swamy once again debunked the Hindu terror theory, saying it never existed. The BJP leader said on Hindu terror that there was a conspiracy against Hindus by Rahul and Sonia Gandhi and P Chidambaram, adding that PM Narendra Modi should now act against them.

“There was never a Hindu terror theory. It was a concocted thing from day and the first indication of concoction is when Rahul Gandhi went to the US Embassy, according to WikiLeaks, and said that Congress party has decided, Hindu terror is more dangerous than Lashkar-e-Toiba and we are going to accordingly modify our future action… and they started manufacturing things, P Chidambaram started forging documents,” Swamy said.

Swamy said Rahul Gandhi was trying to please the Christian lobby. “It was because of Hindus that we have a democracy and they wanted to convert this into some kind of Christian rule with help from Muslim nations,” he alleged, adding the entire conspiracy must be unravelled now.

Earlier today, a special NIA court in Hyderabad pronounced the judgement in the 2007 case of Mecca Masjid blast which claimed nine lives. The fourth additional metropolitan sessions-cum-special court for NIA cases acquitted all five accused in the case. The blast at the historic Mecca Masjid in Hyderabad on May 18, 2007 during Friday prayers had also left 58 others wounded.

Initial investigations were conducted by the local police and the probe was later transferred to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), which had filed a chargesheet in the court. The National Investigation Agency (NIA) took over the probe from the CBI in 2011.

Initially, 10 people with links to right-wing organisations were named as accused in the case. However, only five of them -- Devendra Gupta, Lokesh Sharma, Swami Aseemanand alias Naba Kumar Sarkar, Bharat Mohanlal Rateshwar alias Bharat Bhai and Rajendra Chowdhary - were arrested and put on trial. Two other accused -- Sandeep V Dange and Ramchandra Kalsangra -- are absconding while another accused Sunil Joshi has died.
