Bhopal: Congress leader Digvijay Singh on Sunday said the BJP and the RSS should introspect as to why those having links with Sangh Parivar "have been caught" indulging in terrorist activities.

Maintaining that he never supported religious
profiling on the issue of terrorism, Singh said, "All through
my long political career, I have always maintained that
terrorism is bad, irrespective of the religion of the people
who indulge in it."

The Congress general secretary, who has been under
attack from BJP and Sangh outfits for his remarks on Hindu
terror, said, "Not all Hindus are terrorists but a number of
people who had been caught in connection with terrorist
activities had links with the RSS or its allied organisations.

"The time has come for the BJP and the RSS to
undertake an introspection and find out as to why those
having links with the Sangh Parivar have been caught indulging
in terrorist activities," the Congress leader said to a news agency.

Singh said that there was no question of his being
against Hindus as he himself was a "serious and practicing
Hindu."

"Both my parents were Hindus and my wife and kids are
also all Hindus," the AICC leader said.
