New Delhi: Accusing the Congress of adopting double standards, RSS on Saturday said on the one hand the party uses extremists for electoral gains and on the other it pressurises investigation agencies to fabricate cases to prove involvement of Sangh leaders in terrorist activities.

"The Congress party has always used extremists and outlaws, whenever it suited it electorally...on the other hand, the investigative agencies, under pressure from the government, are going about fabricating evidences against selected Hindu leaders in bomb blast cases..." an editorial in the Sangh mouthpiece 'Organiser' said.

It said till recently the bomb blast cases in which RSS leaders are now accused were held as the "handiwork of mushrooming Muslim terrorist groups."

Questioning the logic behind releasing terrorists, the write up wondered why such people are caught, fed in jails and then freed.

"At least five ULFA terrorists were released last year. It defies the logic of crime and punishment to release murderers and secessionists," it said.

It also slammed the government for its silence on the "tantrums" of Mumbai attacks accused Ajmal Kasab in jail like spitting on the camera and abusing the judges.
