Religion personal matter, not inheritance of political party: Scindia

Press Trust of India  |  Jaipur 

Amid war of words between political parties in poll-bound Rajasthan, Jyotiraditya said Sunday religion is a personal matter and not the inheritance of a party.

Scindia's remarks come a day after said the and his party were confused about his religion and caste.

Swaraj was reacting to Gandhi's statement asking what kind of a Hindu he is as he "does not understand" the foundation of Hinduism.

"As far as religion of any individual is concerned it is his personal matter. Where do you go, which faith you follow, it is a personal matter. Any religion is not an inherited property of any political party," told reporters at a press conference here.

He said religion should not enter the domain of politics and vice-versa.

Attacking the BJP for raking up the issue, he said, "It is their habit to say 'mandir hum wahi banayege lekin tareek nahi batayege' (they make hollow promises on building the Ram temple). It is the BJP's reality."

Clarifying the Congress's stand on the issue, said that the decision of the on the matter will be applicable on everyone and it is our responsibility to abide by it.
