In a video shared by The BJP, the Congress leader could be seen taking unusually long pauses when asked for his views on violence in India. The video soon went viral and BJP mocked the Congress leader.

Rahul Gandhi was asked, "How have you envisioned the compact between violence and non-violence in Indian society?"


He said, "Ah.... I think, a word that comes to mind is forgiveness... it's not precisely the most accurate, it's you realise..," at this moment the audience claps to break the silence and Rahul responds by saying, 'I am thinking.' The interviewer then remarked, 'I did not mean to stump you, I am sorry nobody asked you this before." To which Rahul said, "No, you didn't stump me. I am trying to go deeper into the answer."
