RSS Sarkaryavah Shri Bhaiyaji Joshi strongly condemned the attempts on the part of a section of the media to defame the RSS by involving its name in some destructive activities. In a statement issued in New Delhi on May 3 he said: “The news of the arrest of some of the persons by ATS in connection with blasts at several places in the past has been reported by newspapers. The newspapers have, however, also linked these incidents to the RSS. The RSS condemns this in strongest words.
“The RSS always believes in the due Constitutional process. The Sangh would neither support nor give protection to any illegal or violent activity.
“Having faith in the impartiality of the investigation, the concerned office bearers have relieved the individual charged in this particular incident of all responsibilities. There should be proper investigation and the appropriate legal action should be taken against the guilty, the innocent should not be harassed.”
