Aam Aadmi Party Sunday clarified that the picture of a man chasing the Nazi symbol with a broom shared by party supremo Arvind Kejriwal was an "attack" on German dictator Adolf Hitler and not intended to hurt Hindu sentiments.

The apology came a day after BJP delegation met the Delhi Chief Electoral Officer to the complaint against Mr Kejriwal's alleged attempt to hurt Hindu sentiments and ignite communal tensions

The complaint claimed that the picture shared by Mr Kejriwal on March 20th, showed a man chase a "Hindu swastika" with a broom, the symbol of Delhi's ruling Aam Aadmi Party (AAP).

In a statement, AAP claimed that BJP was propagating a false narrative against the party by claiming that it had hurt the religious sentiments of Hindus.

The tweet was simply an attack on Hitler and his way of operating, the AAP said.

The party then added that firstly BJP should understand the difference between Hindu and Nazi symbols saying, It looks "very foolish" for the BJP, which claims to be a Hindu nationalist party, to claim the Nazi symbol as its own”

AAP then said that the BJP should apologise to Hindus for relating them with Germany's Hitler and for simply trying (to take) a cheap shot at the Delhi CM. Kejriwal on Saturday claimed that PM Modi is using the tactics of Hitler to grab power.
