How do you react to the fact that BJP has picked up what you have said?
When you make a speech anyone is entitled to pick it up. But I think, when it comes to journalism, then it is wise to cross-check with the person who made the speech.

You have said that you are accused of being pro and anti-Hindu?
I don't know. I do know that as I have said in a letter to the editor of Asian Age, if you talk of Hinduism, you get labelled as BJP, but that has never been my position.
