New Delhi, Dec 7 (PTI) Opposition parties attacked Home Minister Amit Shah for his remarks against India's first prime minister Jawaharlal Nehru, with Congress leaders saying nobody has the right to insult those who fought against British Rule and offered everything to support the freedom struggle.

BJP leaders, however, asserted that whatever Shah said in the Lok Sabha about Nehru is correct, and history has to be told.

Shah on Wednesday blamed Nehru's "two major blunders" -- declaring a ceasefire without winning the entire Kashmir and taking the issue to the United Nations -- for the sufferings of the people of Jammu and Kashmir.
