Pune: The RSS will stage nation-wide protests
on November 10 against what it called "political conspiracy"
to malign it by the ruling Congress and raising the bogey of
"saffron terrorism" to defame Hindu organisations.

"RSS is perceived by the people as a patriotic and nation
building organisation which has always condemned violence
indulged in by outfits like Naxalites and Maoists in different
parts of the country. The Rajasthan ATS has falsely implicated
senior RSS activist Indresh Kumar in the chargesheet filed in
the Ajmer blast case to malign the image of the organisation,"
Dattatraya Hosbale, joint general secretary of RSS who
announced the protest programme, told reporters here.

He said Congress leaders were levelling "irresponsible
allegations" against the RSS leaders since the filing of the
chargesheet by the ATS and the organisation would not tolerate
this vicious misinformation campaign and propaganda and the
coining of the term "saffron terrorism".

"Anti-Hindu and anti-national elements are targeting RSS
to achieve their political goals," Hosbale said.

As part of the protest, RSS volunteers will stage a
dharna in front of district collectorate and hand over a
memorandum to the authorities.
