The Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) will start a nationwide campaign
The Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) will start a nationwide campaign from this month to educate the masses on efforts being made to malign Hindus in the country by linking them to terrorist activities.
The chief of publicity of RSS, Manmohan Vaidya, told reporters here on Monday that three issues would be taken up during the two-month campaign. “The Ramjanmabhoomi and Kashmir issues will also be highlighted during the campaign,” he said.
“The RSS will prepare literature on these three issues and its members will undertake a door-to-door campaign, distributing the literature and educating people on these issues,” he said, adding that meetings will also be organised.
Reiterating that the RSS is not involved in any terror-related activities, Vaidya said there are certain forces in the country that are defaming Hindus by linking them to terrorism. “The RSS does not believe in violence and its aim is to work for the society and the nation,” he said.
Asked to comment on the chargesheet filed by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) against the RSS leader, Indresh Kumar, in connection with the Ajmer blast, Vaidya said Kumar did not run away from the investigations.
“If there is involvement of anyone, it must be probed into and proved. After the chargesheet was filed, all kinds of statements began coming in from different quarters. Whenever the government is in trouble, the RSS has been targeted and defamed,” he said.
On the Ramjanmabhoomi issue, the senior RSS leader said that during the campaign, the thrust would be to highlight its history, the past agitation on the issue and the verdict of the court.
“We will also highlight the problems in Kashmir to drive home the point that it is an integral part of India. The recent turmoil and the problems faced by our security forces too will be highlighted,” he added.
