Aseemanand’s claims against Bhagwat send BJP and RSS in tizzy

While Congress left no stone unturned to turn his statement a ‘big issue’ before the upcoming Lok Sabha elections, the BJP and RSS defended Bhagwat by claiming that the claims are baseless.

The revelation came in to limelight after a Delhi-based political magazine dropped a cover page bombshell in its February edition and quoted Aseemanand saying, ‘RSS top brass, including its current chief Mohan Bhagwat and another top leader Indresh Kumar, had sanctioned the three 2007 blasts.’ The magazine also released audio tapes and transcripts of the interview to prove its claim.

Aseemanand was arrested in 2010 in connection with several blasts in India including Samjhauta Express (February 2007), Hyderabad Mecca Masjid (May 2007), Ajmer Dargah (October 2007) blasts, Malegaon blasts in September 2006 and September 2008. The series of explosions took lives of nearly 119 people and sent a ripple across the security agencies in India. Presently, he is lodged in the Ambala Central Jail. The RSS while claiming that the report is ‘baseless and motivated,’ has raised serious questions on the timing of the article. RSS spokesperson Ram Madhav smells a ‘conspiracy’ behind the article. He said, ‘The timing gives a feeling that it is a political conspiracy.’
