Gandhi emphasized that while statements may be expunged in Modi’s realm, the truth cannot be erased in reality. Speaking to reporters outside Parliament, he reaffirmed his stance, asserting, “I spoke the truth. They can expunge as much as they want. Truth remains truth.”

During his first address as Leader of the Opposition, Rahul Gandhi accused the ruling party leaders of fostering communal divisions, which sparked strong objections from the government benches. Prime Minister Narendra Modi particularly criticized Gandhi for allegedly labeling the entire Hindu community as violent.

Rahul Gandhi delivered his remarks during the debate on the Motion of Thanks on the President’s address to Parliament. He invoked Prophet Muhammad and cited passages from the Quran advocating fearlessness. Holding up images of Lord Shiva, Guru Nanak, and Jesus Christ, he referenced various religions including Hinduism, Islam, Sikhism, Christianity, Buddhism, and Jainism to underscore the value of fearlessness.

During Gandhi’s speech, Prime Minister Modi intervened multiple times, and several cabinet ministers interjected, with Home Minister Amit Shah demanding an apology from Gandhi. Gandhi, while addressing the uproar, challenged the BJP and stated, “You are not following true Hinduism,” citing the religion’s emphasis on standing for truth without fear.

In his concluding remarks, Rahul Gandhi urged the ruling party to refrain from spreading fear and animosity. He expressed readiness for constructive dialogue, urging cooperation for the country’s progress: “Do not view the opposition as adversaries. We are willing to discuss any issue. Let us work together to move the nation forward.”
