Congress glorifying Hitler: BJP

September 30, 2004 21:54 IST

The Bharatiya Janata Party on Thursday blamed the Congress for glorifying Hitler and Nazism in schoolbooks in Gujarat, saying these were brought out in 1986 when the Congress was in power.

The Narendra Modi government plans to withdraw these books, party spokesman Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi said in New Delhi.

Naqvi said he had a telephonic talk with Modi in the wake of reports that "in Gujarat, Hitler is a textbook hero".

He said the CM told him that the books were published when the Congress was at the helm of affairs.

Naqvi also dismissed Congress criticism over certain schoolbooks in Gujarat in which Kashmir has been depicted as part of Pakistan. He said what had been shown was a physical map and not a political one.
