RSS to campaign in Gujarat to counter anti-Sangh `propaganda`

Ahmedabad: RSS on Friday announced to launch a
state-wide campaign from tomorrow against Centre`s
"pre-planned attack" on the organisation for "tarnishing" its
reputation.

"There has been a pre-planned attack on the RSS by the
Union government which is aimed at tarnishing the reputation
of the organisation," Gujarat RSS chief Amrut Kadiwala told
reporters here.

He said there was an attempt to get the RSS banned and
efforts were also made from international quarters to weaken
the Hindu strength in India.

Kadiwala alleged the Centre of using the politics of
"misinformation" and implicating influential religious leaders
in false cases. He cited Swami Aseemanand, Laxmanand and
Shankaracharya of Kanchi as examples.

"It is to counter this false propaganda against the
Sangh that this 15-day campaign, a part of the nation-wide
programme, is being launched," he said.

Kadiwala said RSS members would go door-to-door, talk to
people and make them aware of the facts about RSS and
"politics of misinformation".

RSS workers would also meet the community leaders and
opinion makers in the society and will discuss various issues
on which the RSS was being portrayed wrongly, he said.

When asked why the Sangh was planning a nation-wide
campaign if it was innocent and not involved in terror
activities, he replied, "This campaign is not because we are
worried about the misinformation, but it is to make people
aware about the facts."

This state-wide campaign by RSS would begin on January 22
and continue till February 6.
