Is Rahul Gandhi trying to experiment with 'soft Hindutva'?

New Delhi: Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi on Monday came under fire from Professor Rakesh Sinha for repeatedly targetting Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS).

Sinha, who heads the India Policy Foundation (IPF) since 2008 as its honorary director, accused the Congress leader of making baseless allegations against the 'sangh' to divert the attention from National Herald case and experiment with soft Hindutva.

He came down hard on Rahul saying, the Amethi MP has been trying to generate intolerance against RSS by false propaganda.

Professor Sinha also slammed Uttar Pradesh PCC chief Nirmal Khatri and equated the Gandhi scion with Khatri.

Khatri has been booked for allegedly trying to malign the RSS by "morphing" a photo that purportedly shows an activist disrupting flood relief operations in Chennai. As per the complaint, Khatri used a stray 2010 photo of some unidentified people to depict an RSS worker creating disruptions during flood relief operations in Chennai.

Rahul, who has repeatedly targetted the RSS, today alleged that the Sangh and the BJP prevented him from entering a temple in Assam.
