New Delhi: BJP today strongly objected to
the use of the term "saffron terror" by Home Minister P
Chidambaram in Parliament, saying there was no such word and
the "sacrosanct" colour cannot be associated with terrorism.
"There is no term as saffron terror. We have effectively
said this in both Houses of Parliament... saffron is
sacrosanct for India. It cannot be associated with terrorism,"
Leader of Opposition in Lok Sabha Sushma Swaraj said.

She was replying to a question on whether the party was
concerned about Chidambaram`s use of the term in Parliament
last week.
