New Delhi: The CPI on Friday asked the Centre
to take stern action against Hindu extremist outfits allegedly
involved in terror acts, claiming there was "enough evidence"
"The Union Home Ministry should take note and act
against them. There is enough evidence against these
organisations like the Sri Ram Sene and others on their
alleged involvement in terror acts," CPI National Secretary D
Raja said here.
He said the government has been "more focussed" on
tackling Leftwing extremism but "rightwing extremism is
proving to be more dangerous to national unity and integrity"
Raja`s statement came after the CPI(M) castigated the
Centre for "lack of firmness" in dealing with Hindutva
extremists and demanded a coordinated probe into the attacks
in Malegaon, Hyderabad and Ajmer allegedly carried out by such
"The terrorist attacks in Malegaon, Hyderabad and
Ajmer must be seen as the handiwork of a network of Hindutva
extremist groups. They are a mirror image of their Muslim
counterparts. What is required therefore is a coordinated
investigation into all these attacks.
"It is inexplicable why cases involving the Hindutva
terrorist attacks have not been handed over for investigation
by the newly set up National Investigation Agency," barring
the Goa blast case, CPI(M) leader Sitaram Yechury had said.
