Saffron Terror

The BJP proudly claims Hindutva as its ideology and has hung a giant portrait of Veer Savarkar, charged as a co-conspirator in Gandhi’s killing, opposite the portrait of Gandhi in the New Delhi parliament building. “Indian constitution has secular outlook which bars conflation of state and religion. But today’s India is anything but a secular state. RSS/BJP has embarked on an arduous journey to make India a Hindu Rashtra where Hindus will be superior and non-Hindus will have no place; its practical reflection can be seen in today’s India.

India disrespects International law and international norms and becomes a threat to regional peace.

The Indian minorities are looking for separate homelands so they could live peacefully and where their basic human rights are protected.

Starting from Kashmir, the Indian government practically rejected the 1947 division formula. Kashmiri population and their genuine leadership, for instance, Sardar Muhammad Ibrahim Khan, wanted to accede to Pakistan.

However, India forcibly occupied Jammu and Kashmir and so far failed to implement the UN Security Council resolutions in 1948/1949, which asked for holding a free and fair plebiscite.

The illegal occupation of the princely states of Junagadh and Hyderabad, and the illegal annexation of Goa manifested the Indian violations of international laws which guaranteed rights to the people to decide their fate.

The RSS worked at the grassroots level, recruiting children who are taught to fight religions. The group consistently criticized pro-minority policies.

RSS supported Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) demanded the building of a temple where the Babri Masjid was constructed. The campaign ended with the demolition of the mosque by a Hindu mob in 1992. It was accompanied by a widespread wave of communal riots.
