Misguided youth

Sir, - I fully endorse the view expressed in your Editorial `Majoritarian prescriptions'(Oct. 29) on the remarks of the RSS chief, Mr. K.S. Sudarshan. It is a pity that he indulged in such rhetoric repeatedly. This could stoke communal tension in the country. This kind of derogatory statements did kindle communal frenzy in the past in which innocent people lost everything. Misguided youths are being dragged to the path of terrorism by such leaders.

Sir, - This has reference to the news report `Re-interpret your scriptures - Sudershan tells minorities' (Oct. 27). In his Dusshera day address at Nagpur, the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh chief, Mr. K.S. Sudershan has defended the Government's move to saffronise education and also advised the Government to stockpile nuclear weapons. He failed to condemn the vandalism at the Taj Mahal and the forceful entry of the Vishwa Hindu Parishad leaders into the disputed land at Ayodhya against the court's rulings.

Instead of educating the VHP, Bajrang Dal, BJP etc. to behave properly with the minorities in the interest of peace and harmony, he asked Muslims and Christians to re-interpret their scriptures which preach tolerance and goodwill. This only reminds us of the saying about the devil quoting the scripture.
