New Delhi. After blaming a BJP leader for planting false news of misconduct by his son, Home Minister Rajnath Singh has now hinted at a possible malicious campaign by the opposition Congress party to silently convert BJP members into Congress agents.
Throwing some more light on the alleged campaign, Rajnath Singh coined a new term “Friendship Jihad” and called it a conspiracy by Congress to increase its power and strength inside the Parliament.
“Members of Friendship Jihad brigade, disguised as Hindu nationalists are meeting BJP leaders and increasing their friendship with them by praising Israel, talking about problems of Kashmiri Pandits, and ranting against Pakistan,” said Rajnath Singh while addressing a press conference, “To increase their impact, many of them wear saffron clothes.”
“After taking BJP leaders in confidence, they invite them to their home for lunch or dinner, where they serve our leaders sedative mixed food. Once they become unconscious, these Congi jihadist make them sit on sofa and they take their photographs with senior Congress leaders like Digvijay Singh and Salman Khurshid, to give an impression that our leaders are chaddi-buddies with them,” the Home Minister claimed that these photographs were later used by the friendship jihadists to blackmail BJP leaders.
“This way our leaders are getting into a trap set by Congress. Afraid of getting exposed publicly, many have started following their orders and planting unfavorable news in media,” Mr. Singh explained how the news about his son appeared in some parts of media.
BJP is still not sure of the extent of damage these friendship jihadists have done. They also suspect some journalists to be part of this “jehad”.
Sources tell Faking News that as a damage control exercise, BJP has issued a circular warning its leaders to stay alert while meeting unknown persons.
Reportedly, while meeting any stranger, all BJP leaders have been asked to perform what they call a “Red Litmus test”, which will reveal if the stranger is a Congress agent or not.
“All they need to do is to start criticizing Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi in the worst possible way. If the stranger’s face turns red with anger, it means he is a friendship jihadist,” explained a senior BJP leader.
