Hon’ble Home Minister of India
New Delhi 110001Dear Sushil Kumar Shindeji
I hope you had time to read “The Believer” report in the current issue of Caravan magazine which is on the news-stands now. Based on four interviews with Swami Aseemanand, a prime accused in Hindutva terror cases, this report makes abundantly clear that the umpteen terror attacks across the country including Samjhauta, Ajmer and Makkah Masjid, were not the handiwork of a small group.
Rather, the whole RSS organisation including its current supremo Mohan Bhagwat and top leader Indresh Kumar blessed, planned, financed and protected the saffron terrorists. It is also clear that Aseemanand is not remorseful in the least about what he and his group of terrorists did as says that there is no point of being sorry about them and that these acts will continue.
It is a painful reality that the security and probe organisations under your direct control have failed to properly probe the saffron terror attacks which were passed off as handiwork of Muslim boys. The organisations under your direct control are yet to even interrogate Mohan Bhagwat and Indresh Kumar. This should have been done long ago as Malegaon 2008 and Ajmer blast charge sheets are clear about these and other RSS leaders’ role in planning and financing those blasts.
This is a fit case to outlaw RSS as it has been flagrantly violating the undertaking it gave in 1949 to get the ban lifted on its activities (which was imposed after the assassination of Mahatma Gandhi by its members in 1948) that it will remain a social organisation and it will shun political activity. Now it is clear that not only it indulges in divisive political activity through its proxy (BJP), it also clearly indulges in high treason by planning, financing and abetting terror activities aimed at dismantling the secular and constitutional system of our country.
Mr Shinde, you and your UPA government will be responsible to the nation and to history if you fail in your constitutional duty to punish the real perpetrators of terror in India as this activity is not a simple crime but high treason since it involves a plan to illegally demolish the legitimate secular edifice of our polity.
