BJP in a fix on supporting 'terror tainted' RSS

New Delhi: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) lashes out at Home Minister P. Chidambaram for using the term 'Saffron Terrorism' and accused the government of targeting Hindus.


“Terrorism cannot be attached to any religion. Individuals may be terrorists. By using the term ’saffron terror’, he has directly targeted the Hindus", said BJP spokesperson Rajiv Pratap Rudy.


"It is part of the government’s appeasement policy", he added.


“The country is witnessing a lot of chaos. Chidambaram needs an excuse to divert the attention of the nation", he said.

“The government, led by Sonia Gandhi (United Progressive Alliance chairperson), Manmohan Singh (prime minister) and Chidambaram, has messed up on every front, whether it is international dialogue, disturbances in Kashmir, leftwing extremism or the Commonwealth Games. They are now trying to divert the attention of the nation,” he alleged.


Home Minister P. Chidambaram while inaugurating a conference of chiefs of police forces of the country on Wednesday said a new phenomenon of “saffron terrorism” was behind several bomb blasts.

“There is no let up in the attempts to radicalise young men and women in India", he said.

“Besides, there is the recently uncovered phenomenon of saffron terrorism that has been implicated in many bomb blasts,” he said referring to Hindu radical outfits.
