Indian National Congress’s leader and ex-Member of Parliament, Wayanad Rahul Gandhi, is currently visiting the USA. Over here, he has been doing some programs in which there are discussions about India and Indian politics. A day before, Rahul Gandhi allegedly mocked Indian culture, like bowing down to something sacred in the Hindu religion. Today, the news suggested that Rahul Gandhi has certified Muslim League as secular in a program in the USA. Twitter has shown anger at Rahul Gandhi’s statement on Muslim League in the US.
The day before yesterday, Rahul Gandhi was addressing a program in San Francisco and just a few hours back, he was addressing journalists at the National Press Club in Washington. In one of the questions asked by a journalist regarding his calling BJP communal but his party, the Congress, is in alliance with the Muslim League in Kerala, Rahul Gandhi’s response was like the Muslim League in Kerala is an entirely secular party and there is nothing non-secular about it.

Later, the ex-Congress president and MP added, “I think the person who sent this question has not studied much about the Muslim League.” The Congress and the Muslim League have been part of the Kerala UDF alliance for the last decades.
After the video of Rahul Gandhi’s above statement went viral, the Twitteratis came heavily on him. The overall reaction by the Indian Twitter users regarding the statement by Rahul Gandhi on Muslim League is of anger and disappointment. Rahul Gandhi had already created controversy just a day before when he commented about Hindu rituals and other things. Now, he has saved Muslim League by calling it secular.
We have curated a few Twitter reactions here that show anger at what Rahul Gandhi says about the Muslim League.
Mihir Jha tweets his view by putting his tongue in the cheeks and saying that even Muhammad Ali Jinnah would have been surprised by Rahul Gandhi’s views on Muslim League.

Union Minister Kiren Rijiju has slammed Rahul Gandhi for his recent comments and made him aware of which party was responsible for the Indian partition in 1947
Jinnah’s Muslim League is a secular party? The party responsible for India’s partition on religious lines is a secular party?
Extremely unfortunate that some people in India still consider the person who supports the Muslim League as Secular! pic.twitter.com/vkx7mm1fDd

Shashank Chakraborty believes that Rahul Gandhi has now made his most significant political mistake by calling Muslim League secular.
All these years, all comments of RaGa were treated as jokes as he being the biggest Pappu of India.
But with this line, he axed himself with the biggest mistake of his political career!
MUSLIM LEAGUE IS SECULAR..🤮🤮🤮🤢🤢🤢 pic.twitter.com/oLsIiKencK

User Cogito is also making Rahul Gandhi remember what happened in Kerala in 1946 when Muslim League asked for the partition of India.
The IUML Rahul refers here to US media is the successor to Jinnah’s Muslim league that canvassed votes for creation of Pakistan in 1946 elections & won 29/29 Muslim seats in the south including Kerala.
It was founded on the principle of an Islamic state & Rahul say it’s secular.

Shashi Shekhar Singh has a different view on this issue; look at them.
Muslim League is secular party
CONgress is non-corrupt party
Jawahar Lal Nehru was freedom fighter
Indira Gandhi was democratic and not dictator
Above said things have no truth to it, they are based on imagination, they are stated just for fun.
