NEW DELHI: Opposition leaders on Saturday took a shot at the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government for the alleged attack on Muslim family, which left 12 of a family injured in Gurugram’s Bhondsi on Thursday.
Congress veteran Ghulam Nabi Azad lashed out and accused the BJP of creating an environment of “hatred.”
“Every patriotic Indian is disgusted by the video of a family in Gurugram being mercilessly beaten by hooligans. The RSS/BJP channelises bigotry and hatred for political power. This incident serves as a warning of the dangerous consequences and the dark side of that strategy,” Congress president Rahul Gandhi tweeted.

SP chief Akhilesh Yadav on Saturday condemned the attack. “Whatever happened at the residence of Mohammad Sajid is beyond imagination. The political leaders who are behind such incidents are unable to understand that hatred is such a venom that will destroy everything,” he tweeted in Hindi.
गुरुग्राम में मोहम्मद साजिद और उनके परिवार पर जो गुज़री वो कल्पना से परे है। देश के भाईचारे को बिगाड़ने वाले नेता ये बात नहीं समझ रहे हैं कि नफ़रत ऐसा ज़हर है जो सब को ध्वस्त कर देगा। https://t.co/j27rLIqLyS

In a tweet, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal criticised PM Modi and wrote, “Hitler bhi satta ke liye yahi karta tha. Hitler ke gunde logo to pitte the, unka khoon karte the aur police jinhe mara, unhi ke khilaaf case karti thi (Hitler also used to do this for power. Hitler’s goons used to beat up people, kill them, and police registered cases against those who were assaulted).”
हिट्लर भी सत्ता के लिए यही करता था। हिट्लर के गुंडे लोगों को पीटते थे, उनका ख़ून करते थे और पुलिस जिन्हें मारा, उन्हीं के ख़िलाफ़ केस करती थी।
मोदी जी भी ये सत्ता के लिए करवा रहे हैं, हिट्लर के रास्ते चल रहे हैं। पर मोदी समर्थकों को दिखाई नहीं देता कि हमारा भारत किधर जा रहा है? https://t.co/egOHDZtSnO
