New Delhi, September 01: AFTER CONGRESS VICE PRESIDENT RAHUL GANDHI WITHDREW HIS PLEA FOR QUASHING THE DEFAMATION CASE FILED BY RASHTRIYA SWAYAMSEVAK SANGH, SENIOR CONGRESS LEADER KABIL SIBAL SAID THAT RSS SHOULD CLARIFY IN THE COURT WEATHER NATHURAM GODSE WAS “A HINDU WHO COULD KILLED MAHATMA GANDHI. CAN RSS EXPLAIN IF GODSE WAS NOT A TRUE HINDU?”
As per the latest development, Rahul Gandhi’s counsel Kapil Sibal told the Supreme Court that the congress vice president stands by his remark against RSS and is ready to face the trial.
Meanwhile the Supreme Court refused to grant Rahul Gandhi an exemption from personal appearance in the lower court. The case is pending before a magisterial court in Bhiwandi in Thane district of Maharashtra. Kapil sibal in a press conference briefed the media that the Supreme Court has been pending the defamation case for long.
“We have been requesting the court to declare it unconstitutional. In other words it means no criminal investigations in respect of offences related to defamation. That challenge was pending for year and a half and that judgment was rendered recently, and there is no delay as such. Since the Supreme Court upheld the validity of section 499, no delay as such, he said. He added that he will fight the case till the end. Anyone who embraces Hindu religion truly would never kill Gandhiji. RSS said they did not kill Gandhi. So I want to know if Nathuram was a true Hindu or not.Who is the true Hindu? Apart from caste and religion, this fight is about humanity” he said.
On being asked why he withdrew the petition he said, “I withdrew the case because of simple reason. We insisted what we said, we will not backoff, what we said was on record. AS per the RSS , they say Rahul Gandhi should in the court say RSS as an organization need nothing to do with assassination of Gandhi. We said we will stand by with what we said, nothing less, nothing more. The fight is between what India stands for and we believe true Hindu would never kill Gandhi. Now RSS has to say whether Nathuram was a true hindu or not, because a true hindu would never kill Gandhi”.
“The fight is legal and political. Rss is an ideology and I am not member of RSS because I don’t believe in the ideology of RSS. I am a Hindu who believe in a way of life- insaniyat- If RSS as an ideology will judge on who should eat what –who should wear what- we will fight against it. what Rahul Gandhi said has already been said by Tushar Gandhi. RSS just want to take political agenda because UP election is coming” he added.
