Indresh Kumar criticized after Congress MP demanded ban on RSS.

The RSS leader’s comment came in response to Kerala Congress MP Kodikanal Suresh’s call for a ban on the RSS after the Centre’s ban on PFI.
“We demand a ban on RSS too. Banning PFI is not the solution as RSS is also spreading Hindu communalism across the country,” K Suresh had said earlier today.

After the demolition of the illegal structure at the Ram Mandir Janmabhoomi, the Congress again banned the RSS. But they faced defeat,” he said.
“Neither Hindu nor Hindutva can be sectarian. The whole world knows and believes that Hinduism and Hindutva are only universally respected and accepted,” Kumar added.

“PFI is an anti-national organization that resorts to violence. It should be banned. It was a long-standing demand which the Center has fulfilled. The government should teach a lesson so that terrorism ends in India.” ‘
