Siddaramaiah calls himself as 'humane Hindu', criticises BJP

Clarifying his remarks on the ongoing war of words on ‘Hindutva’ with BJP leaders, Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah on Saturday asserted that he is a Hindu with ‘humane’ face unlike those who spread hatred in the name of Hinduism. “I am also a Hindu, but a humane Hindu. Hindu dharma means humane Hindu and not hatred. That is Hindutva”, Mr Siddaramaiah told reporters after a meeting with Congress president here to discuss the party’s preparations for the Karnataka assembly polls, which are likely to be held in April-May.Mr Siddaramaiah said the BJP was raising irrelevant issues. “The BJP has no other issues. UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath is raising the same issue. Amit Shah is also raising the same and Prime Minister Narendra Modi may also raise the same issue”, Mr Siddaramaiah said while responding to a question about the BJP attack against him on Hindutwa. The Karnataka Chief Minister clarified that he did not call the BJP leaders as terrorists, but said that they have spreading hatred in the name of Hindutva. While speaking at a rally in the Southern state last week, the BJP President Amit Shah alleged that the Congress government led by Siddaramaiah is ‘anti-Hindu. Following it, Mr Adityanath also attacked Mr Siddaramaiah and asked him to prove him as real Hindu by disown beef eaters. Responding to this criticism, Mr Siddaramaiah described the RSS, BJP and Bajrang Dal are ‘Hindutva extremists’. Also he had stated that if he wants to eat beef, he would eat it and the BJP has no role to decide people’s food habit. UNI KNA SHK 1908
