Congress for strict action against RSS
Swami Aseemanand on Friday confessed to his role in Samjhauta Express blast.
New Delhi: Congress on Friday stopped short of
asking for a ban on RSS after Swami Aseemanand`s reported
confession of his involvement in Samjhauta blast, terming it
as "Sanghi terrorism" and advocating strict action against
such organisations and people.
"Reports about the confessions of Aseemanand which
have appeared in media have brought out the new terror face of
RSS. This is Sanghi terrorism which poses a big threat to the
country," party spokesperson Shakeel Ahmed told reporters
Ahmed said Congress is asking the government to take
strict action against such organisations and people. "There is
a need to act firmly against such persons," he said.
To a question whether Congress would seek a ban on
RSS, he said, "Ban it or disband it but take firm action. New
facts have come to light and government should definetely take
action after examining all facts."
Aseemanand, who worked for Vanvasi Kalyan Ashram in
Dangs in Gujarat, reportedly confessed about his involvement
in the Samjhauta train blast before a magistrate.
