Rashtreeya Swayamsevak Sangh, New Delhi:
HINDI: गृहमंत्री सुशीलकुमार शिंदे ने जयपुर में कांग्रेस के अधिवेशन में दिए बयान में हिंदू आतंकवाद शब्द का प्रयोग करना अत्यंत अनुचित और आपत्तिजनक है. हम इसकी घोर भर्त्सना करते हैं. आतंकवाद आतंकवाद है. उसे हिंदू या अन्य किसी धर्म के साथ जोड़ना उचित नहीं है. गृहमंत्री ने आतंकवाद की जिन घटनाओं का उल्लेख किया है उनकी अभी भी जाँच चल रही है. ऐसे में गृहमंत्री ने ऐसे बयान देना जाँच प्रक्रिया को प्रभावित करने का प्रयास है जो आपत्तिजनक है.
जिहादी आतंकवाद पर काबू पाने में अपनी असफलता को ढँकने के प्रयास में कांग्रेस सरकार ऐसे राजकीय बयान पहले भी देते आई है. अकबरुद्दीन ओवैसी के प्रक्षोभक एवं देश विरोधी बयान के पुख्ता सबूत होने के बाद भी सरकार करवाई करने से कतरा रही थी. जनता के दबाव और न्यायालय के आदेश के बाद उन्हें करवाई करनी पड़ी. अफजल गुरु की फांसी की सजा सर्वोच्च न्यायालय ने कायम करने के बाद भी उसपर अमल नहीं हो रहा है. ऐसी नाकामियों को छिपाने के लिए गृहमंत्री ऐसे राजकीय बयान दे रहे है.
ENGLISH: The comments made by Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde at Jaipur Congress Conference, using the word “Hindu Terrorism” is highly incorrect, objectionable and dangerous. We strongly condemn his statements. Terrorism is just terrorism, it cannot be associated Hindu or with any other religion. The case which was mentioned by Shinde, is still under investigation. His comment is an attempt to influence the proceedings of the case.
Congress has been issuing such statements to hide its failure in tackling the Jihadi terrorism. Government was not willing to take proper action on Akrabuddeen Owaisi in spite of evidences of his anti-national statements. Later the govt had to take action because of pressure from public and the court. Even though the Supreme Court has given death sentence to Afzal Guru, the Government is not implementing it. To hide such inaction, the Home Minister is issuing such political statements.

Earlier today, Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde said at the AICC meeting in Jaipur “Reports have come during investigation that BJP and RSS conduct terror training camps to spread terrorism. Bombs were planted in Samjhauta express, Mecca Masjid and also a blast was carried out in Malegaon. We will have to think about it seriously and will have to remain alert . This has come so many times in the papers.It is not a new thing that I have said today. This is saffron terrorism that I have talked about. It is the same thing and nothing new. It has come in the media several times,” the home minister said.
To a question if it was Hindu terrorism or saffron terrorism, he said, “This is saffron terrorism (that) I have stated.”
Reacting to Shinde’s comments RSS top functionary Ram Madhav at Vijayawada said, “Being at such an important post of the nation’s Home Minister saying such a thing is irresponsible & Shinde ji has done it to appease Congress vote Bank & also to please his senior leaders. We strongly object to such allegations. It was Congress Govt’s police who earlier had arrested & also filed charge sheets on the Muslim youths for the blasts that Shindeji mentioned. But then later the same Congress Govts has pushed the blame on to Hindu youths & have implicated Hindus in the same cases. Sangh objects to term Hindus & the Hindu organizations Terrorists.”
BJP President Nitin Gadkari has said, “BJP is not anti Muslim. If so BJP would not have appointed Dr Kalam as the President.” BJP spokesperson Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi ji said, “Home Minister making such irresponsible statements about Hindus & the organizations is consemnable & dangerous. He & the Congress President Sonia Gandhi as well as the new VP Rahul Gandhi should apologize to the nation.” After much flutter, Home Minister Shinde has back-tracked on this earlier statement & said, “I did not say Hindu Terrorism; I said Saffron Terrorism. And what I said has already come in the news papers.” Congress spokesman Rajeev Shukla said, “Shinde ji meant Right Wing Terrorism; not Hindu terrorism.” Mani Shankar Aiyaar said, “I 100% agree with the Home Minister Shinde & what the nation knew, Shinde has openly spoken.”
