Bangalore, Sep 21 (UNI) Vishwa Hindu Parishad Regional Secretary B N Murthy today denied any role of both VHP and Bajrang Dal in attacks on places of worship and prayer halls in Karnataka.
Mr Murthy told mediapersons here that he was pained at the ongoing conversion activities among Hindus by some minority organisations.
His organisations do not subscribe to the ideology of indulging in violence in putting an end to the conversion activities.
To a question, he said the attacks on the places of worship in several parts of the State in the last few days could be the handiwork of some political parties trying to destabilise the BJP Government.
On the arrest Bajarang Dal Leader Mahendra Kumar for claiming responsibility, he said he made the statement in a fit of emotion.
Mr Murthy also alleged Mr Kumar was arrested under pressure from the Centre.
