Indore: Madhya Pradesh BJP on Friday
said that the Union Home Minister P Chidambaram had insulted
the "majority community" by his remarks that BJP government in
the state was encouraging religious fundamentalism.

"The statement of the Union Home Minister is an insult
of the majority community and if Chidambaram and Congress
General Secretary Digvijay Singh continue to do so, then they
(the majority community) are also ready to settle the score
with them," said the State BJP President, Prabhat Jha, here.

Jha was reacting to Chidambaram`s statement at the
local Congress office here yesterday. The Union Home Minister
had said that BJP, which rules the state, was encouraging
religious fundamentalism, and dividing the society.

Jha said that it appeared Chidambaram was not aware of
prevailing situation in the state and instead of saving the
Congress, he was "making another hole in the party`s sinking
boat".
