Photos of Congress workers worshiping in the Shiva Temple at 10 Janpath today have been released.

“Let Rahul Gandhi declare that I am not a Christian, but a Hindu. Why does he have a church at 10 Janpath and does he go there to pray? So unless he claims he is a Hindu like his father Rajiv Gandhi, we will not believe him,” Swamy said after Rahul visited four temples in Gujarat in 2017.

During his visit to Gujarat, Rahul had visited Dwarkadhish Temple, Chotila Temple, Khodal Dham Temple and Jalaram Temple.

Congress has repeatedly asserted that party leader Rahul Gandhi was a janeu-dhari and a Shiv bhakt.
