VHP slams Chidambaram over `saffron terror' remark

delhi Updated: Sep 02, 2010 15:07 IST

Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) on Thursday criticised Union Home Minister P Chidambaram for his `saffron terror' remark and sought an apology from him.

The Home Minister should apologise for "insulting" Hindu sentiment. If Chidambaram fails to do so, the Prime
Minister should drop him from the Cabinet, VHP International general secretary Praveen Togadia said in Rajkot.

Talking to reporters here after flagging a `sobha yatra' to celebrate Janamasthami, he expressed the VHP's
commitment to build a grand Ram Temple in Ayodhya.

"It is VHP's determination to build a Ram Temple at Ayodhya. The Parishad will not allow anyone to construct a
masjid there," Togadia asserted.

Gujarat Finance Minister Vajubhai Wala and MP Vijay Rupani also took part in the yatra organised by the VHP.
