Congress General Secretary, Digvijay Singh on Sunday said that no purpose would be served by banning the RSS.
"There are a number of organisations that are linked with RSS and if the RSS is banned, these will continue its work," Digvijay said.
He said that earlier also, the RSS had been banned but the experience was not entirely happy or successful.
The Congress General Secretary said that senior BJP leader L K Advani had often said that all Muslims were not terrorists but only Muslims were found involved in terrorism.
"Similarly not all Hindus were terrorists but those Hindus who indulged in terrorism had links with the RSS," he added.
