Why NIA is silent over RSS weapons display: Ktka SDPI asks

Bengaluru: In the backdrops of nationwide raids and arrests against the Popular Front of India (PFI), the Karnataka unit of the Social Democratic Party of India (SDPI) questioned the silence of the National Investigation Agency (NIA) over the overt display of weapons by the RSS and the involvement of its affiliated organisations in the anti-national activities.

In a press conference held by the SDPI, the state General secretary Bhaskar Prasad termed the crackdown on PFI by the ED and NIA a move to suppress a movement that has raised its voice for minorities, Dalits and other oppressed communities.

Prasad said that the NIA seems to have been blindfolded at the display of hundreds of weapons in several RSS offices for Puja sermons. He also questioned the no-action stand by the investigation agencies against the RSS' weapon display.

He urged the authorities to reveal the names of people, under whose names the weapons are registered.

"Moreover, how can an unregistered organisation perform transactions worth crores (of rupees)? Is the NIA blind to this? Is it (the RSS) an independent organisation or a lapdog of the government?" Bhaskar asked.

The Dalit leader also highlighted that the affidavit filed by former RSS leader Yeshwanth Shinde mentioned that he was among those involved in bomb blasts carried out across the country.

The NIA and the Karnataka Police arrested 21 PFI and SDPI leaders in Karnataka during the nationwide raids carried out against the organisations last Thursday.
