Why so much respect for a terrorist? BJP questions Rahul Gandhi's 'Ji'

New Delhi : Hours after Rahul Gandhi was heard adding 'ji' after terrorist Masood Azhar's name at an event in the national capital, the BJP questioned him, “Why so much respect for a terrorist?”

Speaking to a news agency ANI, the Union Textile Minister expressed shock over Rahul Gandhi’s respectful address to terror organisation Jaish-e-Mohammed’s founder (JeM). She said, “Nation is shocked… Rahul Gandhi adressesed a terrorist Masood Azhar with respect. Families of martyrs and people who lost their relatives in terrorist attacks want to ask him, why so much respect for a terrorist? Why he calls the Army chief a goon, while respects a terrorist?”

The Congress chief went into a controversial situation when he suffixed Masood Azhar's name with 'Ji' while slamming National Security Advisor Ajit Doval for handing him over at the time of IC 814 hijack in 1999.

The Indian government had ceded to demands of a terror organisation who secured the release of terrorists Mushtaq Ahmed Zargar, Ahmed Omar Saeed Sheikh and Mulana Masood Azhar in exchange for 150 passengers of the Indian Airlines flight 814. Ajit Doval, the then chief of Intelligence Bureau had travelled to Kandahar after Azhar was released to ensure the safety of all flyers.
