Swamy asks govt to give facts on right-wing terror

delhi Updated: Jan 11, 2011 19:33 IST

Janata Party President Subramanian Swamy today asked the government to come out with facts on the alleged involvement of right-wing groups in terror activities, saying the nation has a right to know.

In a statement, Swamy said the "attempt to foist" the Samjhauta Express bombing and other cases on the "Hindu community by the UPA government was getting more and more ridiculous."

He claimed that terror accused Swami Aseemananda's alleged confession appears to be a "mirror image" of the confession made by SIMI activist Safdar Nagori, "who too while in custody in 2008, had owned responsibility for the Samjhauta Express bombing."

"The UPA government should, therefore, make it clear which confession they are now accepting and which is the one they are rejecting. I demand that the Prime Minister should direct the Home Ministry to issue a white paper on the so called phenomenon of Hindu terror and lay bare all the official information on file that they have on this matter. Only then the truth will emerge.

"The nation must know all the facts. We cannot allow the government to enable Pakistan to make propaganda about Hindu terror without full transparency on the issue," he added.
