Taking strong exception to the stem entry of Ghulam Nabi Azad, Leader of Opposition in Rajya Sabha & former Chief Minister of J&K, on comparing RSS with ISIS, the state Bharatiya Janata Party has said that it shows lack of knowledge and disregard to the significant contribution of RSS in nation building .
In a joint press statement, BJP State Chief Spokesperson Sunil Sethi and State Spokesperson Balbir Ram Rattan, have asserted that RSS, since its inception, has been involved in engineering social change for betterment of the society and have been involved in number of projects for upliftment of poor and down trodden, irrespective of religious and regional affiliation and name of RSS is taken with utter respect to and regards by all, including significantly minorities.
It is only small group of people with petty political motives and ambitions like Azad, who turn blind eye to the truth and deliberately make false and misleading statements hoping that people will fall prey to their vicious propaganda but actually they make fool of themselves as nobody believes in such rhetoric.
They further said RSS has been working for inculcating nationalistic feelings in the masses and untiring efforts to make India strong and united. It is against any sought of violence against humanity and has been educating masses to stand together for cause of nation and national interest, irrespective of religious and regional feelings. Comparing an organisation which is working for upliftment of humanity and patriotism with beastly organisation having no regards for human existence like ISIS, shows the total mind corruption on the part of Congress.
Sunil Sethi further said that statement of Ghulam Nabi Azad has not only hurt sentiments of all Indians with nationalistic thinking and patriotism but it is meant to serve the cause of enemies of the country by giving such statement without even understanding it’s consequences which was unexpected of a person of his stature. They demanded immediate apology from Azad and Congress party to the whole nation.
