“Today Jamat ud Dawa etc congratulated Shinde. Now he has become d darling of real terrorists. It is Shinde who is helping our enemies by such statements. Now even LeT welcomed his statement I am told (sic),” Madhav tweeted.
“Shinde says what he said abt Hindu terror is what was reported in media. Then he shud b a news reader, not home minister of India (sic),” he added.
Union Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde on Sunday alleged that the training camps run by the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) were promoting Hindu terrorism. He also alleged that the RSS and the BJP were behind the Samjhauta Express, Meccca Masjid and Malegaon blasts.

"It is saffron terrorism that I have talked about. It is the same thing and nothing new. It has come in the media several times," the Home Minister said.
