Press Statement

The Polit Bureau of the Communist Party of India (Marxist) has issued the following statement:

The RSS Chief has declared war on the minorities in his concluding speech at the RSS camp in Agra. By demanding that the minorities accept "their Hindu ancestry" and join the national mainstream, the RSS has set out its sinister definition of nationalism based on religious identity.

The Union Home Minister who attended the meeting obviously subscribes to this rabid communal ideology. The NDA government should clarify what the Home Minister’s presence at the RSS show portends for government policy?

The Polit Bureau of the CPI(M) strongly condemns this latest round of hate campaign against the minorities and the mischievous attempt to link this anti-minority stance to safeguarding national security. All secular and democratic forces in the country should unitedly counter this disruptive RSS game.
