Allahabad: VHP on Thursday accused Union Home Minsiter P Chidambaram of labelling RSS pracharaks as Hindu terrorists on the basis of "fabricated evidence."
"Ever since the UPA government led by Congress has come to power there has been a surge in conspiracies against Hindu outfits and their leaders.
Efforts are being made to label RSS pracharaks and VHP workers as Hindu terrorists on the basis of fabricated evidence," VHP president Ashok Singhal said here.
"A whole lot of Hindu leaders like Kanchi
Sankaracharya Jayendra Saraswathi, Pragya Thakur, Asaram Bapu
and Swami Nithyananda have been harassed and defamed ever
since the Congress-led government assumed power," he said.
Chidambaram had on May 11 said "Terrorism of the
jehadi variety is just one of kind of terrorism in our country
and there are examples of terrorism sponsored by other
religious groups, particularly extreme right-wing Hindu
Singhal said that Chidambaram`s statement was
tantamount to "spewing venom against the Hindu society".
"It is a matter of great concern. The Home Minister
must withdraw his statement, refrain from making such
statements in future and put an end to implicating Hindu
religious leaders in false cases," the VHP supremo said.
