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.
