Lucknow, Nov 23: Accusing the UPA Government of politicising terrorism, the RSS on Sunday said that the Centre had coined terms like 'Hindu terrorism' to cover up its failure in combating terrorism.

"There is nothing like 'Hindu terrorism' or 'Muslim terrorism', anyone killing innocents is a terrorist," RSS chief K S Sudarshan said on the sidelines of a RSS meeting here.

Taking a dig at the Centre for maligning the image of Hindus, Sudarshan said, "instead of taking any step to effectively combat terrorism in the country, the government is trying to divert the attention of people by coining terms like Hindu and Muslim terrorism."

He added that the UPA is involving in the game of politicking, since the general elections are approaching.

Earlier addressing a session here, Sudarshan said, "the recent agitations over Amarnath shrine and Ram Setu indicate that the Hindu awakening has taken place."

The RSS chief also condemned the role of PDP and termed it a pro-Pakistan party.

He also said that unlike Christianity or Islam, Hinduism is not a religion, it is a way of life in sync with nature.

Pointing to western lifestyle as reasons for global recession and global warming, Sudarshan said, "individualism takes an upper hand in the west over family and society, unlike in India, where we follow 'Sarve Bhavantu Sukhina'."

The RSS chief criticised Nehru for his pro-western approach and stressed on de-centralised and pro-people approach.

He also praised the institution of family and said the country's families are still safe and sound.

Sudarshan also blamed Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Finance Minister P Chidambaram for the kind of economic recession India is facing coupled with decline in production.

He said that the villages should be the centre point of all developmental activities in the country.
