VHP leader praises Dec 6 events
|New Delhi: Continuing with his diatribe against Muslims, VHP vice-president Giriraj Kishore told the Liberhan Ayodhya Commission on Wednesday that the Babri Masjid demolition was a ‘‘collective response’’ of Hindus to ‘‘atrocities by Muslims’’.
He went on to explain why the demolition was important: ‘‘It was our misfortune that no collective response was given to the atrocities carried out by Muslim invaders. Individual struggles were waged in the past too. But the task was fulfilled on December 6. Muslims understood that Hindus will not tolerate this anymore.’’
The ambiguity of his earlier depositions was nowhere in sight as Kishore owned up his statement in which he had said that the demolition had helped ‘‘put Muslims in their place’’ besides ‘‘awakening Hindus’’. Kishore is reported to have said, ‘‘The demolition had three spin-offs.
First, it resulted in a tremendous awakening among Hindus. Then it helped in reining in our fanatic Muslim brothers who were forever dictating terms to us.
"That has stopped at least and they have been put in their place. Lastly, it sent a signal to the international community that Hindus could no longer be taken for granted,’’ Kishore told the panel (Times News Network, May 30, 2002). q
