PULWAMA: Labeling Bhartiya Janta Party (BJP), Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP), Bajrang Dal (BD) and Rastriya Swamsevak Sangh (RSS) as terrorist organizations, India Minister for Chemicals, Fertilizers and Steel and Lok Janshakti party chief Ram Vilas Paswan has demanded imposition of blanket ban on the right wing Hindu organizations.
He blamed the Hindu organizations for the present crisis in Kashmir as they had imposed economic blockade of the Valley. “Economic blockade is the root cause of the present crisis in the Valley. The situation arose only after the terrorist organizations like BJP, VHP, Bajrang Dal and RSS blew the Amarnath land transfer issue un-proportionately and imposed economic blockade of Kashmir. Such organizations should be banned for promoting hatred,” Paswan told reporters on the sidelines after laying foundation stone laying of Steel Processing Unit, here.
He said that the ban on the saffron groups will send a positive signal to the liberation organizations in Kashmir. “There is a trust deficit towards India in Kashmir and this step will help in reducing that gap,” he said.
The union minister asserted that the minorities are not safe in India as they are being regularly targeted by RSS, BJP, Bajrang Dal and VHP. “The saffron parties are not posing threat to Muslims only but are also targeting the Christians. The Hindu activists have been attacking churches and Christians in Orissa, Kerala, Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh,” he said, adding, “Minorities cannot be safe unless saffron parties are banned”.-SANA
