As the media carried excerpts from an article in RSS Hindi journal “Panchjanya” virtually justifying the murder of Mohammad Akhlaq in Uttar Pradesh, the RSS said the magazine was not its mouthpiece.

“The report that RSS supports the Dadri incident is blatantly false and baseless,” a statement by RSS spokesman Manmohan Vaidya said, referring to the place where the gory murder took place on September 28.

“RSS never supported any incident of violence.

“RSS has clearly stated about Dadri violence that a thorough inquiry should be conducted and the guilty should be punished,” he added.

Vaidya added that “Panchjanya” and its English counterpart “Organiser” were “not the mouthpiece of RSS. An official office bearer only speaks on behalf of RSS.”

Founded in 1925, the Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh (RSS) is a Hindu revivalist group and is considered the ideological parent of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).

Vaidya’s statement follows the publication in mainstream media of a “Panchjanya” article that said that Islamic seminaries and Muslim leaders teach Indian Muslims to hate the country’s traditions.

It added that Akhlaq, who was dragged out of his house and lynched by a mob following rumours that he ate beef, “perhaps slaughtered a cow under the influence of … bad deeds”.

The magazine also justified the attack on Akhlaq, 50, by quoting Newton’s theory of “natural reaction to any action”.

The RSS denial also came on a day when BJP president Amit Shah, speaking on behalf of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, pulled up five BJP leaders for making controversial statements on beef consumption and the Muslim man’s murder.

  1. RSS spokesman Manmohan Vaidya – “RSS denies supporting Muslim man’s lynching”.

    RSS says, “Panchjanya” and its English counterpart “Organiser” were “not the mouthpiece of RSS’. RSS disowns them to hide their involvement because they published articles supporting Hindu Police Acts taking law in their hand illegally. RSS papers saidthat Akhlaq, who was dragged out of his house and lynched by a mob following rumours that he ate beef, “perhaps slaughtered a cow under the influence of … bad deeds” RSS paper justified the attack on Akhlaq by quoting Newton’s theory of “natural reaction to any action”.

    THE BEEF EATERS AND THE MINORITY COULD BE MURDERED BY RSS. THEY GOT MAHATMA GANDHI KILLED, JOINING HANDS WITH VIR SAVERKER OF HINDU MAHA SABHA. IRONICALLY, PRIME MINISTER VAJPAYEE, HOME MINISTER ADVANI AND HEALTH MINISTER SUSHMA SWARAJ, JOINTLY INSTALLED THE PORTRAIT OF SAVERKAR JUST CLOSE TO THE ALREADY EXISTING PORTRAIT OF MAHATMA GANDHI IN THE CENTRAL HALL OF THE PARLIAMENT DURING THE NDA GOVERNMENT. THEY DID SO WITH A SENSE OF VENGEANCE AGAINST THE MAHATMA!!!

    SEE FOR THE PORTRAIT BEING INSTALLED http://www.thehindu.com/thehindu/2003/02/27/stories/2003022705830100.htm

    WE HAVE ELECTED THE RSS MAN MODI AS OUR PRIME MINISTER. HE IS “MAVN MOHAN MODI” WHEN ALL THIS HAPPENS, FOR OBVIOUS REASONS.

  2. Even when an organization clearly denies something using its official spokesman, many anti-sanaathana groups continue to blame RSS for doing exactly the opposite!! These are the same groups who never came forward to apologize for wrongly accusing the newly elected Govt for imaginary attacks on churches. The same groups behind anti-semitism are busy with their anti-sanaathana agenda in India. Read history and you will know what groups I am referring to.

      READING HISTORY IS OF NO USE IF YOU DO NOT UNDERSTAND HISTORY.

        I JUST wish our Joker Rampu’ji would advise his chaddi fanatics to read some history/old books (before they even dream about dress up in chaddis to lynch somebody)! Lol! What a joker!

  3. @ Pincode pai – You will never understand History unless you start reading it. smiles…
    @ Joker Praveena Pinto – You will never understand anything unless you learn to read!! LOL

  4. Dear readers,

    RSS disassosiates itself from Killer of Father of Nation.It proclaims itself as ‘social organisation’ and proudly wielded Lathis,swords,Trishul and bombs to protect Indian culture as if constitution of India granted them special rights.

    They denied any links to bomb blasts of Nanded,Malegaon blast,Ajmer blast,Mecca masjid and Samjhota express.They successfully martyr Late Hemant Karkare when he exposed the saffron terror and sent Mohan Bhagwat to Congress PMO office to ‘sashtanga pranam’ to drop the name for International terror organisation.

    Three time banned organisation even denies political involvement but Mod’s Minister line up in RSS office and reveal violating oath of secrecy.

    They get their funding from 40 countries and never publish auditing report of their finance and don’t maintain members list.

    If ‘Panchajanya’ and ‘Organiser’ are not linked to RSS mouthpiece,why don’t RSS demand ban of the publisher?

    Jai Hind

  5. RSS uses front groups like VHP, BD etc to carry out violent acts to further the agenda of building a Hindu state so that it has plausible deniability. Nobody besides modi’s toadies are fooled by the RSS.
