Gwalior, Mar 31 (UNI) VHP General Secretary Praveen Togadia today described 'jehadi' terrorism as dangerous for the country and said police should be granted ''Army rights'' to tackle the menace.
Talking to reporters here today, Mr Togadia expressed concern over activities of the banned Students Islamic Movement of India (SIMI) continuing. He alleged that SIMI activists were receiving local support.
He suggested the Centre grant ''Army rights'' to police so that it could arrest 'jehadi' terrorists from their house.
Alleging that the Centre was ''framing policies on religious lines'', Mr Togadia pointed out that it made announcements to the tune of Rs 1,000 crore for the Muslims.
The VHP leader said 'Ram Setu' was a matter of faith for the Hindus. He said an agitation would be launched in the whole country, if efforts were made to demolish it.
