Bhopal: Congress General Secretary Digvijay
Singh on Thursday said Rahul Gandhi did not do any wrong by
comparing RSS with banned outfit SIMI.

"When Rahul compared the two organisations he had merely
said that they had almost same ideologies," Sing said in an
informal talk with reporters here.
Singh said there were a number of instances of RSS
activists being involved in terrorist activities like blasts
at various places in the country.

The first instance of making bombs by Hindu right wing
organisation Vishwa Hindu Parishad had come to light in
Neemuch in 1992 when BJP was in power in Madhya Pradesh.
Singh said when he was Chief Minister of the state, he
had presented proof of involvement of SIMI and Bajrang Dal in
terrorist activities to the then BJP-led NDA government.

"The government had accepted the proofs about SIMI but
did not do anything about the proofs given with regard to
Bajrang Dal," he said.
