Udaipur, Dec 1: Congress president Rahul Gandhi yet again targeted Prime Minister Narendra Modi, this time questioning his understanding about the very essence of Hinduism.
Participating in an interactive session with business leaders and professionals here on Saturday, Gandhi said "What is fascinating to me, most fascinating fact, is about what is the essence of Hinduism? What does the Gita say about it? That knowledge is with everybody, knowledge is all around you, around him, around him."
"Har Jeev Mein Gyan Hei (every living being has knowledge), this is the essence.
"Our PM says he is a Hindu, but, he doesn't understand the very essence of Hinduism.., what kind of a Hindu is he?” the Congress chief quipped.
Gandhi's observation came amidst a row over certain remarks made by Congress leaders CP Joshi, Raj Babbar and Vilasrao Muttemwar about the PM and the latter's serious exception against the utterances. (UNI)
