The Polit Bureau of the Communist Party of India (Marxist) has issued the following statement:
Investigate True Nature of Terrorist Activities
The interrogation of some responsible RSS functionaries in Uttar Pradesh on their links with Hindutva terror groups is a serious development. Hindutva terror groups are suspected to be behind the bomb blasts targeting the minority community in at least three incidents in which innocent people were killed. These are the blasts in Malegaon, Ajmer Sharif and Mecca Masjid in Hyderabad. That RSS pracharaks are suspected to be linked to such elements cannot be put down to individual aberrations but it is precisely the hatred filled irrational propaganda and inculcation of rabid anti-minorityism by the RSS which is responsible.
The Congress led UPA has been tardy in investigating these links which have been raised in different fora repeatedly. In 2006, in the context of the Nanded bomb blasts and the blast at the RSS office in Tenkasi, which it was later found that RSS workers themselves had engineered, demands had been raised in parliament by the CPI(M) for a comprehensive inquiry to probe whether there was a wider network in operation. The Government did not act. At least now, it must pursue the cases on a fast track without compromise so that the true nature of these terrorist activities are revealed.
