Attempts made to give terror a saffron colour: RSS

A senior RSS leader alleged that a section of the media was being used by vested elements to spread lies about the RSS.

Terming as a political conspiracy the linking of its senior member Indresh Kumar with the Ajmer bomb blast case by the Rajasthan ATS,a senior RSS leader on Sundayy said vested elements were trying to give terror a “Hindu and saffron color”.

“On one hand,these people who are related with the Union government claim terrorism should not be linked with any religion. However,these very people and some vested elements are now trying to spread canard by levelling misleading charges of Hindu terrorism and saffron terror,” RSS’ Punjab unit chief Kishorkant said.

He alleged that a section of the media was being used by the vested elements to spread lies about the RSS.

On Indresh Kumar,whose name figures in the chargesheet relating to the 2007 Ajmer Dargah blast case,he claimed that it had been done intentionally as part of a “tirade against RSS by some political leaders and investigators”.

Kishorkant said,”Indresh’s name has been dragged and till date he has not even been questioned and no one knows what are the charges against him. Some political leaders and a section of the media have already portrayed him as a convict.”

“He will always remain a Sangh member and part of our family because we believe once a Sangh member always a Sangh member,” he said when asked if the RSS would disown Indresh if he was convicted in the case.

When asked if a platform was being created to ban the RSS,Kishorkant said “at the moment,it is for one to imagine (such a thing happening)… but they (the government) have to see (what to do)”.
