PDP chief Mehbooba Mufti has slammed Congress' Indian Overseas chief Sam Pitroda over his shocking 'hua toh hua' against the 1984 anti-Sikh riots. Taking to Twitter, the former Jammu and Kashmir CM stated that while she admires Sam Pitroda for his contributions to India, trivialising the horific 1984 anti-Sikh riots is unaccetable and a self goal for Congress.

She further added that "A wise enemy is better than a foolish friend":

Shockingly, amid the massive controversy over his "Hua To Hua comment on 1984 anti-Sikh riots, Congress' trusted aide Sam Pitroda did not apologise for his shocking remark and instead attempted to blame his 'poor Hindi' for his remarks.

He said while interacting with media in Shimla: "My Hindi is not good. What I meant was 'jo hua bura hua'. I couldn't translate 'Bura' in my mind. What I meant was move on."

Pitroda 24 Hours After '1984 Hua To Hua' Shocker

Meanwhile, the Congress party has issued an official statement in the 'Hua Toh Hua' controversy. Tweeting the press statement, the party's spokesperson Randeep Singh Surjewala wrote that Congress party abhors violence of any kind.
"We continue to support the quest for justice and stern punishment for those found guilty in 1984 riots. Any opinion remarks made by any individual to the contrarty including Sam Pitroda is not the opinion of the Congress party. The party believes that justices should be done to 1984 riots victims and also to 2002 Gujarat riots victims," the statement reads
