    Congress leader Mani Shankar Aiyar often finds himself in hot water by making controversial statements that do not even go down well with his own party. Once again he has caused a furor by reportedly justifying the Paris terror attack and the killings of cartoonists of the satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo. While speaking to a news channel, he said that ‘powerless’ people will find powerless means of responding to American aggression and there will be a backlash.
    Aiyar said: “We have to admit that ever since there has been a war on terror after 9/11, many innocent Muslims have lost their lives. This is what America did in Iraq and Afghanistan. It is, therefore, only to be expected that there will be a backlash. Countries like America can’t do what they want just because they are powerful. Why should just powerful countries act this way? Why should those who are less powerful not respond? Powerless people will find powerless means of responding, when there are drone attacks.”
    It is not the first time though when Aiyar has found himself caught in a cleft stick by virtue of making controversial statements.
    Today, we bring you five instances when Aiyar embarrassed his own party and supporters.
