Accusing RSS of ‘appeasing’ Muslims by organising an ‘Iftar’ party for them on July 2, a Hindu outfit has sought cancellation the event and an apology from the Sangh.
The Akhil Bharat Hindu Mahasabha, a lesser-known Hindu organisation, has said that Keshav Hegdewar had founded RSS to serve the interests of Hindus but the Sangh is now serving Muslim interests instead, for which it should apologise. “Now, the Sangh has abandoned pro-Hindu tasks and is serving the Muslim interests instead. Iftar parties are being organised for Muslims…But Sangh never organises Navratra fasts and festivities.
“It will be construed that the Sangh has diverted from the path shown by its founders. RSS is urged to cancel its Iftar party and it should seek an apology from Hindus for this mistake, or else the Hindu Mahasabha will oppose any such move,” a statement by general secretary Munna Kumar Sharma and Viresh Tyagi, Office Secretary of the Mahasabha said.
