Coming to Shinde's defence, AICC general secretary Coming to Shinde's defence, AICC general secretary Digvijay Singh, a known RSS baiter, said what he has been saying for the past several years has been proved right after the Home Minister's comments on RSS and BJP. Prasad said "Shinde is a lightweight Home minister and is in the habit of speaking lightly. I condemn it strongly, very forcefully. It is a malicious, baseless comment made by a lightweight Home Minister who doesn't know what he is speaking about." BJP also said the Home Minister's comments will also help Pakistan use it against India as it has always been in denial mode about flow of terrorism from its territory. The opposition party said Shinde's remarks could also have a serious and adverse affect on the government's relationship with the opposition in Parliament which had led to deadlock on many occasions in the past. Shinde is the leader of the House in Lok Sabha. Madhav earlier tweeted, "Today Jamat ud Dawa etc congratulated Shinde. Now he has become d (sic) darling of real terrorists. It is Shinde who is helping our enemies by such statements. Now even LeT welcomed his statement I am told." With terrorist outfits lauding Shinde's statements in Pakistan, the RSS leader said, "The whole world has seen the consequence of this utterly careless and insensitive statement of the Home Minister calling Hindus as terrorists." Shinde yesterday stoked a controversy by accusing BJP and RSS of conducting terror training camps and promoting "Hindu terrorism". PTI SKC VMN
