RSS men rape, take away tribal girls: Kantilal Bhuria

If Madhya Pradesh Congress chief Kantilal Bhuria is to be believed, RSS activists run away with beautiful tribal girls from every village they set foot in.

"They enter the house on the pretext of having meals but keep an eye on our girls," the former Union minister told a meeting of the Congress's tribal unit in Bhopal Monday. He also listed several instances of rape and molestation allegedly involving RSS men.

"Don't let them enter your villages," the tribal leader told his community. "If they have already entered, throw them out the way you avoid a curse."

Later, speaking to The Indian Express, Bhuria alleged that these RSS activists "get emboldened because police don't register complaints against them" and accused the BJP government of going soft on them.

Bhuria is considered a protégé of Congress general secretary Digvijaya Singh, who has long been a vehement critic of the RSS. Digvijaya had recently reiterated his allegation that the RSS trains its cadre in bomb-making.

Bhuria's remarks did not go down well with RSS and BJP supporters who clashed with Congress workers in Sagar. Some activists from both sides were reportedly injured.

Rajendra Bapat, an RSS activist and lawyer from Dewas, filed a criminal case against Bhuria for hurting his sentiments and insulting an ideology. He accused the Congress leader of creating an atmosphere of distrust between tribals and non-tribals. he court will hear the complaint on August 1.
