- Mr Gandhi left on the pilgrimage on August 31
Congress president Rahul Gandhi today shared pictures of Mansarovar lake during his Kailash Yatra, commenting that "there is no hatred here".
His tweets, embellished with pictures of the breathtaking lake and the mountains, still managed to stir the pot back home.
A man goes to Kailash Mansarovar when it calls him, tweeted Mr Gandhi from his official handle. He described the waters as "gentle, tranquil and calm" and said they "give everything and lose nothing".
A man goes to Kailash when it calls him. I am so happy to have this opportunity and to be able to share what I see on this beautiful journey with all of you.#KailashYatra- Rahul Gandhi (@RahulGandhi) September 5, 2018
The waters of lake Mansarovar are so gentle, tranquil and calm. They give everything and lose nothing. Anyone can drink from them. There is no hatred here. This is why we worship these waters in India.#KailashYatrapic.twitter.com/x6sDEY5mjX- Rahul Gandhi (@RahulGandhi) September 5, 2018
The BJP's Amit Malviya re-tweeted him and outraged over a word in the Congress president's tweet.
'It'? Did you just refer to Lord Shiva as 'it'? Unless you have gone to mount Kailash with the sole objective of trekking, this smacks of ignorance about the cultural and religious significance of the Mansarovar Yatra. https://t.co/uVGsYJyLfb- Amit Malviya (@amitmalviya) September 5, 2018
