“Our faith is our personal matter. We are not required to show a certificate to anybody in this regard. We’re not brokers of religion. We do not want to use it politically,” expressed Rahul.
Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi reacted on his Somnath temple visit row and said his grandmother and family are Shiv Bhakts and his family keeps these things private.
The Congress vice-president added that his family doesn’t speak about their religion in public because they think it is a very personal matter and they don’t need anyone else’s certificate about it.
A row had erupted after Rahul’s name was registered as ‘non-Hindu’ along with Sonia Gandhi’s political secretary Ahmed Patel in Somnath temple’s register during his two-day visit to Gujarat on Wednesday.
At a rally in Bhavnagar, he promised if Congress comes to power, a loan waiver for farmers would be announced in 10 days. He promised “college fees would be cut by 80%”.
