Gandhi Nagar: Vishwa Hindu Parishad leader Pravin Togadia on Monday alleged that he was being victimized for belonging to the Hindu community.

“My crime is that I am Hindu. If my name had been Hussain, the SIT would not have summoned me, they wouldn’t have been ready to file cases against me. The innocent Hindus of Gujarat are being targeted through the SIT,” said Togadia.

Togadia also threatened to act democratically against those who are targeting the innocent Hindus of Gujarat, like him.

“Both Zakia Jafri and Teesta Setalvad have complained against me. I will let you know within a few days what are appropriate measures. I will give them democratic answer who have targeted the innocent Hindus of Gujarat,” Togadia said.

Togadia arrived at the SIT office accompanied by sadhus and supporters in tow.

When asked about the questions posed to him by the SIT, Togadia said: "I was asked whether I had come to Ahmedabad during the communal riots. I told them where would I go, to Pakistan?"

According to Togadia, the SIT also asked him who all he met during his visit to Ahmedabad during the riots.

"I met crores of hindus, I met sadhus. If I don't meet them, will I meet Imam Bukhari (Jama Masjid cleric)?" Togadia said.

Togadia also slammed the apex court appointed panel.

"There is no enquiry ordered on 57 'Rambhakts' (Ram devotees) burnt to death in the Sabarmati Express train carnage, while we are being harassed. For the SIT, this case file is the Bible, Gita and the Koran. We have only god with us and nobody else. But I will definitely give a fitting answer to all this," he added.
