New Delhi: Janata Party president Subramanian
Swamy on Tuesday asked the government to come out with facts on
the alleged involvement of right-wing groups in terror
activities, saying the nation has a right to know.

In a statement, Swamy said the "attempt to foist" the
Samjhauta Express bombing and other cases on the "Hindu
community by the UPA government was getting more and more
ridiculous".

He claimed that terror accused Swami Aseemananda`s alleged
confession appears to be a "mirror image" of the confession
made by SIMI activist Safdar Nagori, "who too while in custody
in 2008, had owned responsibility for the Samjhauta Express
bombing".

"The UPA government should, therefore, make it clear which
confession they are now accepting and which is the one they
are rejecting. I demand that the Prime Minister should direct
the Home Ministry to issue a white paper on the so called
phenomenon of Hindu terror and lay bare all the official
information on file that they have on this matter. Only then
the truth will emerge.

"The nation must know all the facts. We cannot allow the
government to enable Pakistan to make propaganda about Hindu
terror without full transparency on the issue," he added.
