New Delhi, Dec 03 (ANI): Taking a jibe at the BJP over the controversy surrounding ‘Hinduism’, Janata Dal (United) spokesperson and general secretary, Pavan K. Varma, on Sunday, said that the ruling party should bring an amendment to the constitution under which party President Amit Shah shall certify if one is a Hindu or not. “Mr. Amit Shah and BJP should bring an amendment to the constitution which says in order to qualify t o be a Hindu every claimant must visit temples at this frequency per day, per week, per month, per year. Only then will Mr. Amit Shah certify if one is a Hindu or not,” Varma said. Mocking the saffron party over the ongoing controversy, the JDU said: “This competitive Hinduism has now become quite amusing. The BJP was not used to a challenge being posed to its so-called and self-annointed monopoly of Hinduism. Now, that it is facing a challenge, I think it is somewhat ‘rattled’. The great Hindu sages are having a good laugh. They said ‘the world is our family’. Now, the BJP is trying to say ‘the world is not our family, only we, the Hindus, that we define, are the family’. It’s a great devaluation of Hinduism.”
