New Delhi, Nov 8: Condemning the use of language by Rahul Gandhi against the RSS, the latter pro-Hindu organization today said it exhibits the "undemocratic and intolerant mindset" of Congress and all sane minds should protest against it.
"The kind of language (not just defeating but smashing the RSS) used by Rahul Gandhi exhibits the undemocratic and intolerant mindset of the Congress. All democratic and well meaning forces should protest the language used. RSS condemns such undemocratic attitude, intemperate language and intolerant mind set of Congress party," head of RSS' communication cell Manmohan Vaidya said in a statement.
He said the Congress and the Nehru family have carried this "hatred and intolerance" since Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru's time but not been able to arrest the growth of RSS or create a dent on its popularity.
"With all their political might Congress could not arrest the growth of RSS and dent its popularity. Now the support for RSS has increased multifold," he said. Rahul Gandhi had yesterday said that Congress will not just defeat but smash the RSS. He termed the poll verdict today in Bihar as a defeat of the "divisive agenda of Narendra Modi, BJP and the RSS".
