Lucknow: Uttar Pradesh Minister Azam Khan has stoked a fresh controversy by demanding that RSS be declared a “terrorist” organisation, accusing it of planning riots and orchestrating them, drawing a sharp reaction from the BJP.

“They have orchestrated many riots and many others have been planned. The RSS should be declared a terrorist organisation,” Khan said here on Sunday.

Hitting back at Khan, BJP secretary Shrikant Sharma said when Prime Ministers like Jawaharlal Nehru, Indira Gandhi and Rajiv Gandhi could not harm RSS, then people like him were of little worth.

“It’s just an effort to create communal tension, appease a section of people and cover up the failures of the Uttar Pradesh government,” he said.

“RSS-phobia” and their rants against it have made no difference to the “nationalist” organisation. RSS works to integrate country and attach people to their culture, Sharma claimed, adding that Khan and his party represented “fissiparous” forces which believed in the politics of appeasement.

On the Ram Mandir issue, Khan was quoted as saying by www.india.com, “We want to assure the BJP and the RSS that if Babri Masjid is built at the same place (in Ayodhya) all the Muslims of India will leave no stone unturned for the BJP to come back to power.”

BJP MP Sakshi Maharaj ruled out the construction of a masjid at the disputed site.

“No power in the world can build a masjid there. The entire world may raise chants of Babri, Babri. A temple was there, a temple is there and a temple will be there always,” he told reporters.

Khan had earlier sparked a row by accusing Jama Masjid’s Shahi Imam Syed Ahmed Bukhari of being hand-in-glove with Hindu outfits which were “silent” on his son’s marriage to a Hindu though they were vociferously raising the issue of “love jihad”.

The UP Minister had described Imam Bukhari as an RSS agent, a charge dismissed by the latter.

World Hindu Congress: RSS Chief says that Hindus Don’t Aspire to be Dominant

Hindus don't oppose anyone, don't aspire to dominate: RSS chief

Asserting that Hindus neither oppose anybody nor aspire to dominate, Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) chief Mohan Bhagwat on Saturday said the community needs to unite to end its centuries of sufferings.

Speaking at the 2nd World Hindu Congress here, Bhagwat said the key to unite the world is to control ego and accepting the consensus.

“We do not have any aspects of dominance. Hindus do not live to oppose anybody. We even allow the pests to live. There are people who may oppose us. You have to tackle them without harming them,” said Bhagwat addressing delegates from across the globe.

“Why are we suffering for 1000 years? We had everything but we forgot to practise values. We also forgot to work together. Hindu society has largest number of meritorious people in many sectors. But they never come together, stay together.

“Coming together of Hindus itself was a difficult task. Earlier, when our Swayamsevaks would try to organise people, they would say ‘a lion never walks in a group’, but even that lion or a Royal Bengal tiger who is the king of the jungle… if he is alone, wild dogs together can invade and destroy him…,” he said calling upon Hindus to unite.

The 2nd World Hindu Congress is being held on the occasion of 125th Anniversary of Swami Vivekananda’s historic speech at the Parliament of World Religions in 1893.

Talking about uniting the world, Bhagwat cited the example of Lord Krishna and Yudhishthir from the Mahabharata, who he said never contradicted each other.

“One of the key values to bring the whole world into a team is to have controlled ego and learn to accept the consensus.

“It is time the Hindu society showcased its oneness to the world and went back to its ancient wisdom and values,” Bhagwat said.

“Of all the main characters, Krishna never contradicted Yudhishthir and Yudhishthir never disobeyed Krishna because it is important to work unitedly, keeping your ego aside,” he added. (IANS)
