The RSS said that Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde’s recent remarks on ‘saffron terror’ was aimed at attracting minority vote bank.

Reacting to Shinde’s Hindu terror remark, the organisation’s annual report said: “Considering Muslims no more than a vote bank, the Home Minister is making false, malicious and baseless charges that the people responsible for terrorism represent ‘Hindu, Saffron, Sangh and BJP’ and showing their anti-Hindu mentality. Persons talking about ‘Hindu terrorism’ do not have the guts to take action against people or organisations openly involved in terrorist activities. It is the result of the same appeasement policy that an elected representative of an assembly can openly appeal for violence against Hindus and the administration dithers in taking action against him.”

The RSS, which is holding its three-day annual meeting in Jaipur, said the statements issued by the Chief Minister of Jammu and Kashmir (Omar Abdullah) after the hanging of Parliament attack accused Afzal Guru were a matter of concern.

These views were expressed in the annual report presented by Suresh Bhaiyaaji Joshi.

“Pro-Pakistani Jihadi groups are putting into act anti-Bharat programme. Presence of anti-Bharat forces is a big threat to the nation. Need of the hour for the government is to take these incidents very seriously. Presence of well-armed and strong military forces alone can raise the morale of the common citizenry. The Government of Bharat should take right strategic policies suited to current scenario and generate confidence in our people about security of our borders,” the report said.

The annual meeting was inaugurated by RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat.

The meet will discuss the work being carried out by the organisation and the challenges before the country.
