Thiruvananthapuram: The Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS)-Sangh Parivar agenda is similar to what Hitler pursued, a CPI-M leader said on Monday.
Addressing reporters in Thiruvananthapuram, politburo member Pinarayi Vijayan said the RSS and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) were trying their best to divide the society on communal lines in the name of Hindutva.
“The RSS is trying to do what Hitler did,” he said, referring to the attacks on Muslims and Dalits.
He quoted RSS leader MS Golwalkar as praising Hitler’s ideology.
“We wish to know which Hindu scriptures say that killings should be done,” said Mr Vijayan, a senior leader of the Communist Party of India-Marxist in Kerala.
He said the people of Kerala had seen through the agenda of the Rashtriya Swayasewak Sangh in trying to forge an alliance with the SNDP, the social organisation of the Hindu Ezhavas.
“This has come a cropper as the SNDP is not in the hands of a few. We see serious differences of opinion breaking out in the Ezhava community over this,” said Mr Vijayan.
