Ban on RSS unlikely to work as it has many sister outfits: Congress

Against the backdrop of Rahul Gandhi equating the RSS with Students Islamic Movement of India, Congress on Thursday said a ban on the saffron outfit like the one on SIMI was unlikely to work as the Sangh has many sister organisations.

Party General Secretary Digvijay Singh told reporters that there could not be any comparison between RSS and SIMI as RSS has many sister organisations and suggested that therefore a ban will be of no use.

He wanted the RSS to rethink about its approach.

His comments came after Congress went full blast in attacking the RSS and its sister organisations during a day-long session of the AICC on Tuesday.

The AICC had accused the RSS of being involved in terrorism and held that the Allahabad High Court verdict on Ayodhya title suit does not condone the demolition of Babri Masjid.
