Somnath temple visit: Rahul Gandhi listed as non-Hindu
Congress party's media coordinator Manoj Tyagi made the goof-up on Wednesday when Rahul Gandhi was paying a visit to the Somnath temple ahead of a two-day campaign tour in the poll-bound state. While writing the name of Congress MP Ahmed Patel, who was also part of Rahul's entourage, in the special register for non-Hindus visiting the temple, Tyagi also jotted down the Congress vice-president's name.
A famous pilgrim place of Lord Shiva, the Somnath temple is barred to non-Hindus, who must obtain permission from the temple authorities to enter the sacred place.
Taking a swipe at Rahul for his stopover at Somnath temple, PM Modi remarked that his great-grandfather and India's first Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru had been opposed to the building of the shrine. Gujarat Congress leader Arjun Modhwadia dismissed the incident as a storm in a teacup and panned the BJP for questioning Rahul's faith over the matter. while also insisting that Rahul Gandhi was unaware of the error.
