Congress leader Digvijaya Singh has once again accused Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh of promoting terrorism.Citing an example of Mahatma Gandhi killing,Former Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister said Nathu Ram Godse was also a staunch believer of Sangh ideology and all the Hindu terrorists caught up by the authorities belonged to Sangh.
“Jitne bhi Hindu dharma wale aatankwadi pakde gaye hai sab Sangh ke karyakarta rahe hai (All Hindu terrorists caught so far have been RSS members in the past),’’ the Congress leader said in Jhabua.
While speaking to media at Madhya Pradesh’s Shajapur he said RSS’ ideology spreads nothing but hate, violence and violence leads to terrorism,’.
Digvijaya had claimed that he has always spoken about Sanghi terrorism and not Hindu terrorism.
Reinforcing his stand on “Sangh terror,” he said, “bomb blasts were executed by people influenced by Sangh ideology, be it Malegaon blast, Mecca Masjid blast, blast in Samjhauta express or Dargah Sharif.”
Defending Singh’s charges, senior Congress leader Salman Khurshid said that his statements needs to be seen in the right context. “Ideologically Digvijay Singh has very strong views. He has opposed minority extremism and said that every kind of extremism is bad. We must contextualise what he said rather than generalise it and think he is saying it against one community or organisation,” Khurshid said.
