The RSS has slammed Home Minister P Chidambaram for his "saffron terror" remarks saying it has exposed the Congress' strategy of votebank politics.

"It is a political conspiracy for votebank politics to place saffron before Islamic jehad sponsored by Pakistan which has killed thousands of people so far," Sangh mouthpiece Panchjanya said in its latest issue.

The editorial said that by making the remarks at a conference of police chiefs recently, Chidambaram has only exposed the "mentality" of Congress.

"...the 85 per cent Hindus of the country should now understand that their interests are not safe under the present government...only a united Hindu power can defeat such anti-national conspiracies," it said.

It said the same government shied away from linking terror with any particular community despite the role of "Islamic jehad" in the killing of scores of people.
