delhi Updated: Oct 30, 2009 23:26 IST

Congress today rejected the views of RSS that madarsas encourage terrorism saying the party does not support it.

"Congress does not support it (madarsas encourage terrorism). We do not endorse it," party spokesperson Jayanthi Natarajan told reporters here.

She was replying to a query on RSS Chief Mohan Bhagwat's views on the issue.

Addressing a gathering of students of Sangh-affiliated Eklavaya schools here, Bhagwat gave an example of an RSS student interacting with his teacher.

"The student tells his guru that he had not got education of violence....The education I have got and the education we are imparting is not one of committing atrocities on others. Our education is not of madarsas that it would encourage terrorism," Bhagwat quoted the student as saying.

Natarajan claimed everybody knows the origin of his (Bhagwat's) views.

"We do not endorse...It shows the attitude and mind of the person making it," she said.
