Gujarat events are state terrorism:
Top Hindu religious leader
New Delhi: A top Hindu religious leader described the
anti-Muslim riots in the Indian state of Gujarat as 'state terrorism' and
demanded that the organisation behind these events should be banned.
Shankaracharya Shri Aadhog Shajananda of Shri Govardhan Math said in a
statement today that 'Whatever happened in Godhara (Gujarat) on Wednesday
is highly condemnable and barbaric. Subsequent mob attacks all over
Gujarat (during bandh call of VHP) on minorities and their properties with
direct assistance of VHP office-bearers and police on Thursday is still
more saddening as it could be termed as state terrorism.'

The Hindu pontiff said that the Government of Gujarat should have captured
the culprits of Wednesday act and it was duty-bound to save the innocent
people and uphold the rule of law but it miserably failed to do so, purely
as a result of political thinking.
He added that 'Provocative actions of VHP in the pious name of
tolerance-oriented Hindu religion is the root cause of it. Should VHP be
allowed to denigrate the world renowned Vedic philosophy and Hindu culture
just because their fraternal political organ, BJP, has started loosing
power in various states?' He went on to say that the BJP would never be
forgiven by the majority Hindu community for allowing the VHP to misuse
religion in the name of Lord Ram who was a personification of humanity.
'Gujarat is burning in communal riots and if VHP and similar organizations
are not checked immediately the country would start burning and
unfortunately there is no good political leader whose advice would be
listened then. As such for the sake of unity and communal harmony and in
order to save Hindu religion from further denigration VHP should be
banned, like SIMI, and all their so-called leaders and activists should be
arrested forthwith under National Security Act,' the Hindu pontiff said.
He observed that the international community would suspect the intentions
of the Government of India and its resolve to fight against terrorism if
BJP continues supporting covertly the riot mongering VHP. q
