Swami Aseemanand comments on RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat, RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat involved in Terror attacks
New Delhi: RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat has been accused of involvement in the 2007 Samjhauta Express, Hyderabad Mecca Masjid and Ajmer Dargah blasts.
The accusations have been levelled by none other than Swami Aseemanand, who is himself an accused in these blasts.
The revelations have been made by a magazine, which reported Aseemanand as saying that the RSS chief had sanctioned these terror attacks.
Aseemanand claimed that Bhagwat had sanctioned the attacks when he was the RSS general secretary. Bhagwat had specifically told Aseemanand that the attacks should not be linked to the RSS.
The magazine yesterday issued a press release and quoted Bhagwat as telling Aseemanand that “it is very important that it be done. But you should not link it to the Sangh”.
The Sangh has rubbished the allegations as baseless.
Doubting the veracity of the magazine’s interview with Aseemanand, who is currently lodged in Ambala Central Jail, the RSS dubbed the interview as “rubbish and concocted”.
RSS’s all-India publicity chief Manmohan Vaidya told an English daily that Aseemanand’s lawyer has dubbed the interview contents as false, baseless and concocted.
In fact, the lawyer has even denied that the magazine ever interviewed Aseemanand, Vaidya added.
As per the magazine, the article was based on a series of interactions held with the blasts accused. The magazine yesterday also released audio tapes and transcripts of the interview to prove its claim.
