New Delhi: Congress general secretary Digvijaya Singh Monday supported his colleague Shakeel Ahmad who, in a tweet, accused the BJP and the RSS of communal politics.

“Religious fundamentalism is at the root of terrorism,” Digvijaya Singh told reporters  while saying that even before BJP leader Narendra Modi became the chief minister of  Gujarat, his party was practising divisive politics.

“Before independence, the Muslim League was also practising religious  fundamentalism,” he said.

A tweet from Ahmad alleging that the banned terror outfit “Indian Mujahideen was formed after the Gujarat riots” stirred a political storm Sunday with the BJP reacting sharply to it.
