While addressing students of Aligarh Muslim University, Khurshid said that having been associated with the Congress, he too had the blots on his hand.
Khurshid was responding to a question asked by an AMU student.
He said " I won’t hesitate to say that Congress has the stain of Muslim blood on its hands. As leader of the party, I feel the blots are on my hand".
The AMU student had raised questions relating to anti-Muslim riots in Hashimpura, Malyana, Meerut, Muzaffarnagar, Bhagalpur, Moradabad and Aligarh and the demolition of the Babri Masjid that happened during the Congress regime.
