Ban RSS, India’s No 1 terror organisation: Former Maharashtra cop – Hindustan Times

Maharashtra’s former inspector general of police SM Mushrif on Tuesday accused the Intelligence Bureau (IB) of being hand-in-glove with right-wing extremists, and called for a ban on the RSS describing it as India’s No.1 terror organisation. At the launch of the Bengali version of his book “RSS – Country’s Greatest Terror Organisation”, Mushrif also termed the ongoing JNU controversy as a manifestation of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh’s (RSS) attempt to turn India into a Hindu nation.“The IB has been and continues to be the most powerful organisation in the country and irrespective of which political party is in power at the centre, it continues to operate the way it wants. “Whatever the IB says or does is considered the truth and its claims or acts are never questioned or verified,” said Mushrif, indicting the agency for colluding with the RSS and its subsidiaries for the killing of anti-terror squad chief Hemant Karkare, who was probing the involvement of Hindu radicals in terror acts. Karkare was killed during the 2008 Mumbai terror attack.
