Nagpur: RSS ideologue M G alias Baburao
Vaidya, on Monday expressed concern about the usage of newly
coined term "Hindu Terror" appealing Hindu leaders to remove
the blot.

"The word Hindu Terror has earned its place in the media
and no one knows who invented it. Though somebody gives credit
to NCP president Sharad Pawar and others says it was Congress
General Secretary Digvijay Singh who has coined the concept,"
Vaidya wrote in his weekly column in a local Marathi daily
here.

He said the government has accused Abhinav Bharat and
Sanatan Sanstha, Goa based right wing Hindu organisation, of
being involved in violence and some arrests have been made in
this regard but none of the accused have been convicted by the
courts till date.

The term of "Hindu terror" was being used to woo Muslim
votes in the country and thereby defaming Hindus, he said.

Those who had earlier claimed that terrorism has nothing
to do with religion were now tagging Hindu community with the
term "Hindu terror" to justify that terrorism was not just
restricted to Islam but also to other religion (Hinduism),
Vaidya wrote in the article.

Vaidya asked all religious and social leaders to take
initiative to remove the blot on Hindus.

"Swami Vishweshatitha of Uddipi, Dr Pandya of Gayatri
Parivar noted Yoga Guru Baba Ramdev and Dayanand Sarastwati of
Coimbatore should tell the government to stop defaming
Hindus," he said.

"Should we call it Congress terror when 3,000 Sikhs were
massacred in Delhi during 1984 riots broke out after the
assassination of Indira Gandhi," Vaidya asked.
