'Communal Violence Bill' will create differences among citizens: Mohan Bhagwat ji
Jammu , Sun, 25 Sep 2011ANI 'Communal Violence Bill' will create differences among citizens': Mohan Bhagwat
Jammu, Sep 25 (ANI): Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) chief Mohan Bhagwat on Sunday said the proposed 'Communal Violence Bill' would create differences among the citizens and divide the country on the basis of caste, creed and religion.
Addressing a meet in Jammu and Kashmir's Jammu city, Bhagwat said the bill does not adhere to the constitutional principles and democratic values.
"Communal Violence Bill is about to be introduced. If somebody goes through it cursorily, you do not need a scholastic approach for it, that person will understand that it is a bill to create differences. So, that tension and differences prevail in the country and India will break due to differences. Such kind of a bill it is," said Bhagwat.
"It is contrary to the general rules of law, neither it follows the constitutional principles, nor it holds the democratic values. It discriminates among the citizens of the country," he added.
The Prevention of Communal and Targeted Violence (Access to Justice and Regulations) Bill 2011, seeks to protect various groups from communal riots.
It has proposed to define the victim groups as 'religious and linguistic minority, in any state in India, or Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes'.
Talking about the UPA Government, Bhagwat said the government is neck-deep in corruption and has lost its credibility due to their alleged involvement in various scams.
"In such a situation, people who should guide the society are quarrelling for being in power. These people have lost their credibility due to corruption. They are extremely selfish. Just to attain power; they are ready to stoop down to any level. The existence of country, for which they are attaining the power, has been put on stake," said Bhagwat.
Speaking about the perforated international borders, Bhagwat said the borders are not fully secured and are not fenced properly and there are repeated attempts of infiltration.
"In northern region, there is China, which time and again keeps on threatening the country. It has its peripheral presence surrounding the country and has befriended India's enemy Pakistan. The friendship is so strong, that Pakistan dares threaten America, that if they (America) will interfere much in the country's (Pakistan) matters, then we (Pakistan) would end this friendship and they (America) will lose a friend," said Bhagwat.
"And in this condition, our borders are perforated. Our borders are not fully secured, infiltration bids are taking place, and borders are not fenced. At some places, the demarcation of border lines is unclear," he added. (ANI)
