Like Nazis, BJP kills Muslims: Digvijay

New Delhi: Making a strong plea for stopping RSS on 19 Dec., AICC general secretary Digvijay Singh accused BJP of killing Muslims in the name of nationalism like Nazis. Digvijay Singh said RSS's "hatred" for Muslims was comparable to that of the Nazis towards Jews. "Why is it that all Hindus found involved in terror activities are members of RSS?" he added. Taking cue, Congress next day urged the government to investigate the links between terrorists and RSS affiliates, embracing Rahul Gandhi's hardline posture on Sangh Parivar whose senior cadre have  been found involved in explosions at Muslim religious places. The Congress plenary session adopted a political resolution which urged the government to tackle the menace of religious fundamentalism strongly and to probe the RSS-terror link as uncovered in recent cases. "Terrorism from wherever it comes and whatever form it takes must be dealt with firmly and effectively," the document said adding, "RSS and VHP are insidious in their effort to break India." Congress also touched upon Gujarat riots, urging the government to "relentlessly prosecute all those responsible for the unforgivable genocide that occurred in large parts of Gujarat in 2002." On Ayodhya, it repeated that the judgment of the Allahabad High Court did not condone the "crime" of demolition and that those responsible ought to be brought to book. At a meeting on Saturday to finalise the resolution, Rahul had suggested that the party should term the demolition as a criminal activity.
