A hateful speech by Indian Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) party’s leader has once again left a question mark on the country’s secularism as he boasted killing thousands of Muslims during Gujarat massacre in 2002 and called for beheading Kerala’s CM, The Wire reported.

RSS leader Kundan Chandrawat’s inflammatory speech on March 1 reignited sentiments against the massacre which killed some 2,000 Muslims under the then chief minister Narendra Modi.

“Have you [Hindus] forgotten Godhra? You killed 56, we sent 2,000 to the graveyard. We – this same Hindu community – shoved [their corpses] underground,” he said.

As Muslim population in India rises, their rights decrease, says professor

The RSS leader was responding to the Communist Party of India (Marxist) which is believed to be fighting against the right-wing party in Kerala. “You have killed 300 pracharaks and activists, we will present Bharat Mata with a garland of 300,000 skulls in return,” he said to the communists.

The tipping point for Indian Muslims is not too far away

“Leftists, beware,” he warned.

As the video of his speech went viral on social media, he dissociated it from the party line of RSS, claiming it was his personal stance. “It’s my personal view”, he said.

“I gave [an] explosive statement just like Bhagat Singh used bomb on British (sic). They must know Hindus aren’t sleeping.”

    The irony is that outfits like RSS and Jana Sangh are packed by the funniest looking individuals who are under the illusion that they represent the spearhead of the Aryan race on the Subcontinent.Recommend

    We are now witnessing such disgusting and vile statements throughout the world these days.

    Such statements of hatred and evil, which spur on actions which represent such ill words.

    The masses, ignorant and of little education seem to be supporting such people.

    This is a global phenomena. Hatred for others based on trivial matters is a norm.

    The good and decent people must unite before it is too late.Recommend

    BIMARU states cannot be compared to Kerala. (Court punished all involved in riots)

    Anyway he has withdrawn the statement. This may be a case of local guy calming that he is a “hero” because he belongs to the family of king shivaji.Recommend
