Hours after Haryana Home Minister Anil Vij said there cannot be a terminology as Hindu terrorism, veteran Congress leader Digvijaya Singh on Wednesday was quoted by news agency ANI as saying: “He said it right. Sanghis are terrorists, Hindus can never be terrorists (Unhone sahi farmaaya hai, Sanghi aatankwaad hota hai…Hindu aatankwaad kabhi nahin hota).” Singh was responding to the Haryana Home Minister’s comment when he said, “A Hindu can never be a terrorist and the term was used by the grand old party for taking political mileage.”

The term Hindu terrorism is used to describe acts of violence motivated by members of Hindu organisations close to Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) and Abhinav Bharat. It was first used by former Finance Minister P Chidambaram after some members of the Hindu community were arrested in Mumbai for their involvement in the Malegaon blast in 2008. Malegaon blasts were second major terror attack involving Hindu members after the 2006 Samjhauta blasts which were allegedly carried out by Abhinav Bharat, a Hindu fundamentalist group.

    All terrorists should be hanged. Terrorists should not be allowed to live in any parts of the country.

      Dear Diggi Dogi, You are the supporter of TERRORIST Zakir Naik, who according to you is a proponent of peace. Only mulla's are peaceful according to you. Stop being anti national or you will become like them. M. Nawaz

        How come anybody who differs from ideas is anti national, please grow up? do some readings about major religions and then you will realise what's the difference between a good person of faith and terrorist, they may look the same but they are exactly opposite of each other. One follows path of God while other uses God's name to kill God's creature.

            Very well said, terrorism has nothing to do with religion, every religion promotes harmony, there should be no term like Hindu Terrorist, Christian Terrorist or Muslim Terrorist. A terrorist has no religion, it only believes in hate and destruction. Would you call Hitler a Christian terrorist, or more recently Oklahoma bomber or Swedish Shooter a Christian Terrorist, of course not, what they did has nothing to do with religion. So it can be a RSS terrorist or ISIS terrorist but not a Hindu or Muslim Terrorist.

                Yes, once you are following ideology of hate and ideology of killing innocent people you are going against all the major religions, God created people and you are killing them for no reason so your path of action is in direct opposition of God's plan. That's why it is said that a terrorist has no religion.
