New Delhi, Nov 12 (UNI) Accusing the government of diverting the nation's attention away from its failure to handle 'jehadi terrorism', by slapping false and baseless allegations against Army personnel and saints, the VHP today said the 'Hindu Samaj' would not tolerate such an affront and give a befitting reply.
Speaking from Allahabad, VHP International president Ashok Singhal alleged in order to divert the attention of the society from this bitter truth, Congress Supremo Sonia Gandhi had initiated a campaign to implicate Hindu saints and organisations in various dubious cases.
''This was being done to humiliate them even though they have not been remotely connected to such activities,'' he said, adding to subject Sadhvi Pragya to narco tests four times was only to torment her into submission and speak out what the government wanted.
Stating that under pressure from the Maharashtra Government the ATS was plotting to implicate a 'dharma-guru' of Uttar Pradesh, Mr Singhal warned the Congress president and her government against such a move saying he would oppose such a move tooth and nail.
''After having miserably failed in containing Jihadi terrorism, Maoist terror activities, and church sponsored terrorism the government was now, in the fear of losing the forthcoming Parliamentary elections, trying to malign the Hindu society and its saints,'' he alleged.
Reminding the government that people had not forgotten the humiliation of the Kanchi Shankaracharya, Asha Ram Bapu, several saints of Kerala, and the recent gruesome murder of Swami Lakshmanananda in Orissa, the VHP leader alleged Ms Gandhi was implicating saints in the web of terror in order to hide the government's failure on all fronts - economic, social and religious.
