Hyderabad: AIMIM President Asaduddin Owaisi on Friday lashed out at Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) chief Mohan Bhagwat on the Gyanvapi row, saying that “before VHP was formed, Ayodhya wasn’t even on the Sangh’s agenda.”
In a conversation with media virtually, the Owaisi said, “Bhagwat’s speech on Gyanvapi should not be ignored. Recall protest for Babri Masjid that was important for historical reasons. At that time, RSS didn’t respect SC’s orders and participated in demolition of masjid prior to the judgement. Does this mean that they will do something similar on Gyanvapi also?”
He further questioned the assurances of ensuring peace and harmony in India given by BJP chief Jagat Prakash Nadda and RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat.
“Who is Mohan or Nadda to give an assurance on these issues? They hold no constitutional posts. Let the PM’s office give a clear message about where it stands on the issue and on the Places of Worship Act, 1991. He has taken an oath on the Constitution. If he stands by it, all these Hindutva upstarts would have to stop,” he said.
He said, “Before Vishva Hindu Parishad (an outfit of the RSS) was formed, Ayodhya Temple wasn’t even on the Sangh’s agenda. It was only in 1989 that BJP’s Palanpur resolution stated that Ayodhya became part of the agenda. RSS has perfected political doublespeak. All of the jokers raising Kashi, Mathura, Qutub Minar, etc have a direct link to Sangh.”
Notably, Vishva Hindu Parishad was formed in 1964 by RSS leaders MS Golwalkar and SS Apte. RSS was formed in September 1925.
Owaisi in a sharp comment said, “It is an old Sangh tactic to disown things when they are unpopular while owning them later on. Anyone remembers Godse and his friend Savarkar?
