News4u News desk-Ahmedabad, Gujarat Congress leaders today hit out at
Chief Minister Narendra Modi for his remarks on B R Ambedkar embracing

During his speech at the launch of his book yesterday, which is a
compilation of Modi's articles and speeches on Ambedkar and social
issues, Modi had said Ambedkar embraced Buddhism instead of Islam or
Christianity because these religions were not originated in India.

According to Congress leaders, Modi has misinterpreted Ambedkar's
social, political and religious views.

"Chief Minister said that Ambedkar left Hinduism but did not convert
to Islam or Christianity and embraced Budhdhism, which was originated
in India," Congress general secretary Girish Parmar said.

"This is CM's interpretation which is absolutely baseless. He must
read Ambedkar to know why he deserted Hinduism to accept Budhdhism as
his religion," he added.
