Srinagar: An independent legislator on Saturday continuously disrupted the first day of Jammu and Kashmir assembly’s autumn session as he accused the PDP-BJP government of carrying forward the agenda of the RSS.

MLA Engineer Rashid asked Chief Minister Mufti Muhammad Sayeed, who was present in the house, to clarify his party’s stand on the beef ban issue.

“To hurt the sentiments of Muslims of the state, you (ruling PDP-BJP coalition) are carrying forward the agenda of the RSS (Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh). It will not work,” he said.

“No interference in religious affairs,” read a banner that Rashid displayed in the assembly.

“Please speak about those are alive and not about the dead,” Rashid said as Speaker Kavinder Gupta was making obituary references on former president APJ Abdul Kalam and former ministers Ghulam Rasool Kar and Mir Ghulam Muhammad.

Rashid even tried to storm to the speaker’s podium but marshals prevented him from doing so.

Later, he walked out of the house alleging that the speaker did not allow him to speak.

The legislator has already submitted a bill seeking revocation of a 1862 law that bans slaughter, sale and possession of beef in the state.

Chief Minister Sayeed and Leader of Opposition Omar Abdullah paid tributes to former president Kalam and others in the obituary reference.

The house observed two-minute’s silence as a mark of respect. The house was later adjourned for the day.

  • RSS (Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh) is a is an Indian right-wing
  • RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat expressed his views on Indian Army’s preparation in his speech to RSS workers in Muzaffarpur in Bihar
  • Kiren Rijiju said if the Constitution permits, RSS can go ahead with its interference in military matters.

The Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh wants to re-mould the Indian State with a military which adheres to Hindutva, the Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPI-M) has said.

This is the message that emerges from RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat’s speech to RSS workers in Muzaffarpur in Bihar that while the Army takes six to seven months to train its soldiers, the RSS can get its cadres ready for battle in two to three days, the CPI-M said.

“This remark has drawn widespread condemnation, with the main criticism being that the RSS chief had insulted the Indian army by claiming that the RSS can do a better job than the Army in training soldiers,” an editorial in the CPI-M journal “People’s Democracy,” said.

“While this criticism is valid, the intent of these remarks is much more serious,” it said. “The statement has revealed a vital aspect of the RSS outlook about the Army and the militarization of society.”

The editorial said: “What the RSS wants in the re-moulding of the Indian State is armed forces which adhere to Hindutva. For Bhagwat, the soldier in the Indian Army and the Swayamsevak of the RSS are on the same footing.

“Under the present Indian Constitution, such an integration of the Army and the RSS is not possible.

That is why, both the RSS clarification and the defence put out by (Minister of State for home) Kiren Rijiju makes this qualification that if the Constitution permits, the RSS can go ahead with its interference in military matters.

“The implication is ominous: a re-worked Constitution should enable this to happen.”
