Expressing shock over Congress leader Rahul Gandhi's remarks that radicalised Hindu groups could pose a 'bigger threat' to India than the Lashkar-e-Tayiba, the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh on Tuesday said the statement indicated his lack of understanding of Indian history.

"The remarks of the Congress general secretary prove that he is totally unaware of the history of Hindutva as well as the concept of nationalism," Sangh mouthpiece Panchjanya said in its editorial titled Think before you speak Rahul.

"Will the Congress, which considers Rahul Gandhi as its future and the future prime minister, be able to protect its very base by relying on his ignorance? The electorate of Bihar has already given its reply," it said.

Such statements would not only weaken the nation's fight against Jihadi terrorism but also encourage it, said the editorial.

"Some of the documents released by WikiLeaks exposed the Congress policy of Muslim appeasement. But everyone is shocked at the anti-Hindutva mentality of Rahul," the editorial said, pointing out that earlier, Rahul had compared the Students Islamic Movement of India with RSS.

The weekly claimed that though such statements are a result of 'half-baked' knowledge, they are part of a pre-planned move.

"There is a need for the country to remain vigilant against the anti-national thinking of the Congress," it said.

According to WikiLeaks, at a luncheon hosted by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh at his residence in July 2009, Rahul had told US Ambassador Timothy Roemer that growth of radicalised Hindu groups was a bigger threat than LeT.
