Thiruvananthapuram, July 20 (ANI): Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh (RSS) Chief Mohan Bhagwat has said that his party does not encourage violence.

Addressing a gathering here on Monday, Bhagwat said: " It has been repeatedly made clear that violence has no place in work of the Sangh. It has never encouraged violence and would not do so in the future as well."

He said he would support officials in investigations into recent attacks by party workers on a media house in the New Delhi as well as other incidents.

"Our party has already specified that there is no place for any kind of violence and we do not support it. If the government in investigations needs any information the party will help them. We have done this and will do it in future as well. But without any reason, making a big issue out of nothing and tarnishing the image of the party can be someone's selfish motive," he added.

He also said that the party workers follow the law and order regulations laid down by the government.

More than 100 activists of RSS had attacked the offices of a media house on July 16.

Reportedly, the attack by RSS workers was in retaliation to a news item that was aired on Thursday about the involvement of the RSS and other right-wing Hindu outfits in blasts Malegaon and Ajmer cities. (ANI)
