RSS creating communal rifts, says CPI-M
Friday September 13, 2013 6:38 PM , IANS

Describing the Muzaffarnagar violence as "a warning bell", the CPI-M Friday accused the RSS of creating communal rifts to benefit the BJP in the next Lok Sabha election.

"The RSS had deployed its resources towards creating a communal polarisation which would benefit the BJP in the Lok Sabha election," said the Communist Party of India-Marxist.

"The riots in Muzaffarnagar will be utilised to win over the jats to the Bharatiya Janata Party camp," said an editorial in the CPI-M mouthpiece "People's Democracy".

Thirty-two people have been killed in the communal violence in Muzaffarnagar in Uttar Pradesh since the last weekend.

"The disturbing feature was the violence spread to the villages causing many people to flee their homes."

It said the riot followed a series of communal incidents in Uttar Pradesh in the past one year.

The administration was certainly lax in dealing with the situation in Muzaffarnagar, the editorial said.

"While the failure of the administration has to be pinpointed, the overall design and the political game-plan of the RSS-BJP combine should not be overlooked," it said.

It said a BJP legislator had been accused of uploading a fake video which purports to show Muslims killing Hindus -- "which was actually a video shot in Pakistan some time back".

The CPI-M journal said that in the past one year, the RSS and its outfits had been working to raise communally sensitive issues and create tensions.

As major festival fall in October, the CPI-M asked the central and state governments to take precautionary measures "and to nip the mischief in the bud wherever it occurs".

It added: "Muzaffarnagar is a warning bell. Every effort should be made to isolate the communal outfits to whichever community they belong."
