Expressing his condolences to the families of 12 Hindu Nepali citizens, who were brutally killed in Iraq, Shri K.S. Sudarshan, Sarsanghchalak of Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), strongly condemned the killing of innocent people. In a letter written to the King of Nepal, Shri Gyanendra Vir Vikram Shah, Shri Sudarshan appealed to the entire Hindu society of Nepal to express its ‘natural and strong anger’ under the law of the land.
In his letter written on behalf of the Hindus of India, Nepal and other countries, Shri Sudarshan said the incident of Iraq had brought about anguish and agony to the entire civilised humanity, specially the Hindus living in India and other countries of the world. He said that the stronger the massacre is condemned, the less it would be. He further said that it was ironical that the people, who claimed themselves to be the followers of Islam, which is publicised as the ‘only’ messenger of brotherhood and peace in the world, would commit such a heinous act. He questioned the silence of mullahs and maulvis who led the Muslim society, on the killing of innocent Hindus.
The Sarsanghchalak said that the Muslims living in Nepal had also come under fire from the shocked Hindus, reaction, which the Foreign Minister of India, Natwar Singh, had described as ‘natural reaction’. Shri Sudarshan appealed to the Hindu society that in such circumstances it should react only within the limits of law and order. In his letter, he prayed, May Lord Pashupatinath rest the souls of the departed people in peace and provide the strength to the Hindus of India, Nepal and other countries of the world so that they could constitute a united and formidable force, to which no power in the world could see with evil eyes.
