New Delhi: Congress today demanded a ban on Sri Ram Sena after the right wing outfit's chief Pramod Muthalik was allegedly caught on camera accepting money to vandalise an art exhibition.

"If these facts are proved, then there should definitely be a ban of Sri Ram Sena. Moreover, there is a need for consideration about the role of even those organisations, which patronise it," party spokesperson Shakeel Ahmed told reporters at the AICC briefing.

He said that the sting operation had exposed a "business of riots", which is a matter of concern for the country and society.

Lashing out at Karnataka Chief Minister BS Yeddyurappa , AICC general secretary Digvijay Singh said the BJP leader does not have the courage to arrest Muthalik.

"Yediyurappa should take strict action. Muthalik should be immediately arrested. What other proof is required, when he has been caught on camera demanding cash. But the Chief Minister does not have the courage to take action against the Sene chief as he knows it is through these people his party creates communal divide to come to power," Singh said.

To a question whether RSS should be banned, Ahmed said it is for the government to decide. "More facts will come and all the organisations with whom the Sene is linked can be probed," he said.

He added "the country knows which are the organisations, which have promoted Sri Ram Sene. The same organisations are now trying to distance themselves from it after the sting operation."

Stressing that "there is a need to keep an eye on both Hindu as well Muslim fundamentalism," Singh said, "When I was Chief Minister, I had demanded a ban both on Bajrang Dal and Student Islamic Movement of India (SIMI).
