Rahul Gandhi
Washington, Dec 17: The latest release by whistle-blower website WikiLeaks exposed that Congress General Secretary Rahul Gandhi told the American ambassador, India has been facing terror threat from radical Hindu groups than the Muslim militants.

The leaked cables published on Guardian revealed that Rahul Gandhi, warned US ambassador Timothy Roemer in 2009 about the increasing tension over the "growth of radicalised Hindu groups which create religious tensions and political confrontations with the Muslim community".

In one cable, US ambassador described Rahul's statements as "there was evidence of some support for [Islamist group Lashkar-e-Taiba] among certain elements in India's indigenous Muslim community, the bigger threat may be the growth of radicalised Hindu groups, which create religious tensions and political confrontations with the Muslim community."

Another cable related to Rahul Gandhi read, "the risk of a 'home-grown' extremist front, reacting to terror attacks coming from Pakistan or from Islamist groups in India, was a growing concern and one that demanded constant attention".

Another cable sent from Delhi discussed about the "the rising profile of young leaders." US ambassador Roemer found this as a positive development for a better relation with India.

He said, "the rising profile of young leaders like Rahul Gandhi provides us an opening to expand the constituency in support of the strategic partnership."
