Shinde’s comment unpardonable: RSS

Now he has become the darling of real terrorists, says Ram Madhav

The Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh and the Bharatiya Janata Party, seeking to turn the tables on the Congress, invoked the indignation across the country caused by the beheading of a soldier, reportedly by the Pakistan Army, and said comments of the Home Minister about “saffron terror” would only please the extremist forces across the border.

Their case was that Pakistan could cite Mr. Shinde’s comments to deny its involvement in attacks directed at India planned from its soil.

RSS spokesperson Ram Madhav described Mr. Shinde’s “insensitive” remark as “unpardonable,” and said it could influence the investigations into Malegaon and Samjhauta blasts cases.

“Today, Jamaat ud Dawa etc. congratulated Shinde. Now, he has become the darling of real terrorists. It is Shinde who is helping our enemies by such statements. Now, even the LeT has welcomed his statement I am told,” Mr. Madhav tweeted.

“Shinde has to prove what he has said,” senior BJP leader Arun Jaitley said. “Otherwise, he has to withdraw the remark or apologise.”

BJP chief spokesperson Ravi Shankar Prasad demanded an unconditional apology from Congress president Sonia Gandhi and Prime Minister Manmohan Singh. He said the BJP had taken serious note of the comments made by a “lightweight” Minister only because they were aired in the presence of Dr. Singh and Ms. Gandhi at the AICC session.

“The BJP shall not tolerate this repeated insult to Hindu and saffron traditions in India,” he said. “Our party has never linked religion with terror, as terrorists have no religion.”

All this time they thought they could carry out all sorts of outrageous
activities, considering themselves above the law, now suddenly when
people have starting pointing the finger on them, they cant take it. Two
young girls were taken into custody for exercising their birthright, and
they were condemned, by this so called Mumbai police. It is all Hand in
glove in INDIA. You just cant trust anybody, who is in power, will keep
on abusing it.

I don't believe that the RSS is an all peaceful and non violent
organization. I am a christian and I personally know christian pastors
who were beaten up by RSS cadets. I believe that they can go to any
extent for their political motives.
