At the official dinner hosted by the prime minister, Manmohan Singh, for the visiting U.S. secretary of state, Hillary Clinton, on the 20th July 2009, the Congress general secretary Rahul Gandhi told the U.S. ambassador to India, Timothi Roemer, that the Hindu extremists were a bigger threat to India's security than the Lashkar-e-Taiba. This has been revealed by a recent Wikileaks leak of a secret cable sent on the 3rd August 2009 by the U.S. ambassador to the state department in Washington D.C.
The leak, so far not denied by the Congress party, shows that Rahul has internalised so much his party's policy of treating the Muslims as a vote bank as to consider the LeT's Muslim jehadists, who are clearly in the service of the Pakistan army's Inter Services Institute and who do not miss any opportunity to declare their intentions not only to free, by use of arms, the state of Jammu and Kashmir from Indian control but also to balkanise India, a lesser evil than the Hindu extremism, which is not at all anti-national and, at the worst, may turn out, if not checked in time, to be a danger to communal harmony in Maharashtra and perhaps also in Madhya Pradesh. From this, it is clear that Rahul has not been able to understand the true spirit of India and all his whistle stop visits to a large number of villages, towns and cities of the country have been a sheer waste of his party's money. Further, the readiness with which he has shared his "profound knowledge" with a foreign diplomat only goes to indicate on his part an abysmal lack of discretion and a grievous error of judgment.
But thanks to the Wikileaks the way Rahul's mind works has been exposed; and the people of India are not going to ever accept this ignorant and immature person as their prime minister.
