Janadhikar Samiti condemns attacks on Kerala RSS cadres

Janadhikar Samiti condemns attacks on Kerala RSS cadres

An RSS functionary today sparked an uproar when he announced a Rs one crore bounty for beheading Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan, drawing condemnation from the Sangh fountainhead, CPI (M) and Congress.

Earlier in the day, Vijayan downplayed K. Chandrawat's threatening remark against him and said the right-wing group has taken heads of several people.

The chief minister found support from across the political spectrum.

At a public meeting in Ujjain on 1 March, the publicity chief of RSS unit of Ujjain (sah prachar pramukh) announced a bounty of Rs 1 crore on the head of Vijayan.

"In India, the RSS has now identified Muslims, Christians and Communists as their internal enemies and were carrying out attacks to eliminate them", Vijayan had said. Talking to ANI, he said, "Its my personal view".




On this raging issue, RSS ideologue Rakesh Sinha commenting on the controversial statement said that this was a wrong statement and won't be acceptable at all.

Kerala has witnessed series of brutal murder in recent past. "The mindset that encourages violence is wrong and the Sangh strongly condemns this mindset".

Yechury said: "RSS reveals its true colours as a terrorist outfit". The silence of the governments is an endorsement that emboldens the RSS to issue such obnoxious threats, the statement added.

The RSS, however, distanced itself from Chandravat's remarks, with a top national-level functionary saying he did not even know him. Sharing the dais with BJP Lok Sabha MP Chintamani Malviya at an event on Wednesday, Kundan Chandrawat also reminded the gathering of the Gujarat riots of 2002. We shoved [their corpses] underground [he gestures downwards, more applause], this same Hindu community. He has no right to live in this country. "We will garland bharat mata with the heads of 3 lakh Leftists", he threatened.
