Something wrong with Sanatan Sanstha ideology: Police
Panaji: More than a week after two activists of Hindu group Sanatan Sanstha (SS) were killed in an explosion while ferrying bombs to a crowded locality in South Goa, a senior police official has said there was "something wrong" with the Right wing organization`s ideology.
Speaking to a local cable news channel, Deputy Inspector General (DIG) of police RS Yadav said the SS needed to rework their ideological make up in a democratic set up.
"There is something wrong with the ideology of the organisation. On the one hand, they talk of spirituality and contentment and god, then how come their activists indulge in terrorist acts," Yadav asked.
Yadav also questioned the teachings carried out at its ashram by the SS, whose members were earlier caught while attempting to carry out blasts in Navi Mumbai, Thane and Panvel last year.
"What kind of teaching is being done there? What kind of indoctrination is it? You can see for yourself," Yadav said.
Since the Diwali eve blasts, the Goa police have studiously maintained that the role of the SS in the blasts was not clear and that prima facie investigations showed that SS members alone had carried out the blasts.
The questions Yadav raises questioning the very ideology of the SS are a fresh departure from earlier police statements on the issue. Yadav is supervising the Special Investigation Team, which has been appointed by the state government to probe the blast.
No arrests have been made so far in connection with the blast.
