Congress not RSS practicing religious polarization: Rakesh Sinha
Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) supporter Professor Rakesh Sinha has accussed Congress of practicing religious polarization. According to him it is the Congress which has coined the term 'Hindu Terrorism'.
Sinha said, "There is nothing new in what Mohan Bhagwat said, ever since the establishment of RSS in 1925 we have been saying that 'Hindutva' is the identity of India".
He said, "It's not only the RSS, but Maharishi Arvind, Bipin Chandra Pal , Bal Gangadhar Tilak have all agreed on this. If you are opposing this fact, then tell me if the identity of India is not 'Hindutva' then what else it is."
When asked about religious polarization he said that Congress practices polarization based on religion.
He further said, "The word 'Hindu terrorism' did not exist in the world dictionary. The Congress has coined this term and insulted the Hindu civilization, Hindu culture and Hindu society under the leadership of Sonia Gandhi. I am sure that all this was done to please Sonia Gandhi".
"I feel that a discussion on Hindu civilization and Hindu culture was long due in this country. If it is being discussed now then it should done in a healthy, positive manner. There is nothing negative about it", he added.
Earlier, RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat had said that India is a Hindu nation and 'Hindutva' is its identity.
