New Delhi, Jun 19 (UNI) All Indian Anti-Terrorist Front (AIATF) chief M S Bitta today described as a ''cruel attempt to communalise society'' Shiv Sena Chief Bal Thackeray and Shiv Sena mouthpiece SAAMNA for advocating Hindu suicide squads and praising Hindus allegedly involved in bomb-making.
''What kind of Hindutva is it ? On one hand, Shiv Sena has been a proponent of throwing out non-Maharashtrians from the state, on the other hand it is advising the entire community to adopt terror,'' Mr Bitta said in a statement.
Pointing out that Islamic terrorists were increasingly being isolated in society, the AIATF chief said it was time for India's political establishment to encourage the trend of declining support to Islamic terrorists.
''It is atrocious for leaders like Shiv Sena Chief Bal Thackeray to try to fuel tensions ands terror...nobody has the right to encourage terror in one form or the other,'' Mr Bitta said.
