On Sunday, Aam Aadmi Party has clarified the picture of a man, who was chasing the ‘Nazi symbol with a broom’ shared by AAP Chief and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal was a part of an ‘attack’ on German Dictator Adolf Hitler and not intended to hurt the sentiments of Hindus.
The development came a day after a BJP delegation met the Delhi Chief Electoral Officer to register a complaint against the AAP Chief, who is accused of inciting communal tensions and religious frenzy.
The opposition party alleged that the picture, which was shared by CM Kejriwal on March 20, highlights a man chase a “Hindu Swastika” with a broom, the symbol of state ruling AAP.
In a statement, AAP reported that BJP was intending to propagate a false narrative against the party by charging that it had hurt the religious sentiments of Hindus.
The tweet was just an “attack” on Hitler and his ways of operating the nation, added the AAP.
The party statement continues, “The BJP should, first of all, understand the difference between Hindu and Nazi symbols.”
It might look “very foolish” for BJP that claims to be a Hindu Nationalist party, to claim the symbol of Nazi as its own, it said.
“The BJP should apologize to Hindus for relating them with Germany’s Hitler and for simply trying (to take) a cheap shot at the Delhi CM,” the AAP added.
On Saturday, CM Kejriwal said that PM Modi is using the tactics of Aloft Hitler to grab the power and influence voters as well.
