RSS carried out bombings across India to bring BJP in power: Former senior leader of RSS
RSS, India media blames Muslims for attacks carried out by Ultra Hindu extremist organization
By The South Asia Times
NEW DELHI: A former leader of the Ultra Hindu extremist organization, RSS revealed that the group carried out bombing across the country to bring the political wing of RSS into power.
Yashwant Shinde, a former senior functionary of RSS, who submitted an affidavit filed with Nanded Court, claimed that many senior organization members were involved in a country-wide bombing to help the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), India's current ruling party, win general elections, The Siasat Daily.
Shinde, who claimed to be a functionary of the Rashtriya Swayansevak Sangh (RSS), stated that he was part of a bomb-making training camp a year before the 2004 general elections and that organization close to the RSS were responsible for a slew of bomb explosions in the country.
His video has also gone viral in which he says that he is a witness to the bomb blast training.
The court was hearing a case involving a Nanded blast that occurred on April 6, 2006, at the home of a retired irrigation engineer, killing two people.
The country main opposition party, National Congress demanded for high level inquiry over the Shinde claims and called it very serious developments.
“There should be a high-level inquiry into the exposing RSS pracharak Yashwant Shinde's anti-national act,” said Congress in a tweet.
“Those conspiring against the nation to win elections cannot be nationalists, strictest action should be taken against every person involved in this conspiracy,” it’s added.
Shinde said that many RSS and Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) people were part of a group who carried out bomb explosions.
Most of India major media outlets avoided the news because of fear of attacks from RSS and BJP.
“As the RSS and VHP’s plan of causing blasts throughout the country was not as successful as was expected, the BJP was not politically benefitted. Consequently in the 2004 elections Congress party got the majority.
“The persons like Milind Parande who were the main conspirators were scared and went underground, but they continued hatching conspiracies secretly. By remaining underground they carried out many bomb-blasts across the country and with the help of biased police and one sided media blamed them on Muslims. That helped them in 2014 Loksabha elections,” he said in the affidavit.
According to Shinde, in 2014, the BJP captured power at the Centre and Narendra Modi became the Prime Minister. This resulted in the sudden activation of all the underground destructive forces belonging to VHP and RSS.
Asaduddin Owaisi, prominent Muslim leader in India, said its not surprising at all.
“There should be strong anti-terror & anti-radicalization measures against Sangh outfits. Despite mounting proof, there will be no “survey” of schools run by these groups. Should we forget
@PMOIndia’s Wardha speech in 2019?,” Owaisi tweeted.
