Alleging that every commission of inquiry has found the RSS role behind communal riots, the CPI (M) on Tuesday dismissed the Sangh claim that it was being put on the dock by linking it to condemnable incidents such as the Dadri lynching episode as part of a bigger conspiracy.

“Not a single false charge has been made against the RSS. They are not charges, rather they are reflections of the truth,” CPI (M) Politburo member Brinda Karat said at a press conference here.

“Every commission of inquiry, which was set up since Independence, showed that the RSS was behind communal riots,” Ms Karat alleged.

She was reacting to the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh general secretary Bhayyaji Joshi’s comments on Sunday that some forces were out to put the outfit on the dock by linking it with Dadri-like condemnable incidents and called for unravelling the truth.

In the past such charges were found to be untrue, he had said.

Countering the saffron outfit’s claim, Ms Karat said, “I went to Dadri after the horrific incident. The place was a model of communal harmony. But for the last several months the RSS front organisations have been working in that area, spreading their toxic propaganda against the minority.”

“By encouraging young people to directly take arms, they (RSS) themselves are manufacturing rumours to kill someone. So every charge against the RSS is a reflection of the truth,” she stated.
