New Delhi, India: With the formation of BJP government in India, the Hindutva color is making it’s reflections from state-platforms. Hindutva fountainhead body Rashtriya Swayam Sewaksangh (RSS) chief’s ‘Dusshera speech’ was aired by state-owned TV channel – Doordarshan (DD).
Immediately after the speech of RSS chief, Indian Prime Minister went on to shower praise saying that annual Dusshera speech of RSS chief raised “important national issues.”
The RSS – the Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh – is the ideological parent of the PM’s party, the BJP.
The opposition has objected to the broadcast of Mohan Bhagwat’s speech by state-owned broadcaster Doordarshan. It said state-run television has no business in telecasting a speech by an organization that promotes communal tension, a charge the BJP and RSS describe as baseless.
Mohan Bhagwat, 64, in his address to cadres, flagged “a serious upsurge in the jihadi activities” in Kerala and Tamil Nadu and alleged that illegal immigration “of a particular community (Muslims) from across the border in West Bengal and Assam has endangered the life of local Hindu communities” and law and order in those regions.
