Actor Siddharth smashes Congress, BJP
Accused of being a Congress agent after he repeatedly criticized Narendra Modi and the BJP over the last few weeks, actor Siddharth on Thursday described both the parties in strong terms.
"Millions of Hindus are against both the BJP and the Congress. Congress has stood for corruption and pseudo-secularism. BJP stands for Hindutva and pseudo-nationalism. Neither is Anti-Cong = Anti-Secular nor is Anti-BJP = Anti-Hindu! There are many middle grounds," he said, using the hashtag 'Democracy'.
He added, "I am a proud Hindu! That means many profound things. I don't want to change my faith or fear another religion or leave my beautiful India. Anyone hijacking my faith and culture whether by fake secularism or using fundamentalism is equally culpable. Beware of hatemongering!"
