Jammu: Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) President Mehbooba Mufti Saturday said that the communal parties, which “make people fight or resort to lynching in the name of religion can be compared to ISIS or any other similar organisation” not Sanatan Dharam or Hinduism.

“SanatanDharam does not teach us communalism. It’s about RSS, Jan Sangh, and BJP, which make people fight in the name of religion across the country. They have hijacked ‘Hindutva, Hinduism’ in the name of their parties. They feel that Hinduism or Hindutva is BJP or RSS, it’s not like that,” Mufti said on the sidelines of a party function outside PDP headquarters in Jammu.

She was responding to media queries about Congress leader Salman Khurshid’s remarks in his recent book.

“They say ‘VasudhaivKutumabkam’ (the whole universe is a family). Hindu that is SanatanDharam teaches that. However, what RSS or BJP wants to teach us is neither Hinduism nor Hindutva,” Mufti said.
