The VHP on Sunday accused the Congress-led government of trying to "malign the image of Hindu leaders by terming them as terrorists" and claimed it was the "greatest lie" that Swami Aseemanand has confessed to the Samjauta Express blast.

"We are trying to enlighten the people. If Congress tries to entangle Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh and Vishwa Hindu Parishad leaders, then a movement will be started against them (Congress)," VHP International President Ashok Singal told reporters.

At the end of a three-day long conclave in Ramnathi, Singhal said a resolution was adopted condemning Congress for "defaming" Hindu leaders by terming them as "saffron terrorists".

Noting that leaders like Swami Aseemanand were being linked to Samjhauta Express blast, the VHP chief commented that the "Congress was saying unbelievable things".

"Detailed investigation was carried out in Samjhauta Express blast, Malegao blast and Mecca Masjid blast in Hyderabad. It has come to light that Jehadis are involved in it," he said.

"Now they are trying to blame Hindus to create a new plot by blaming the Hindu organisations for that," Singhal added.

"It is the greatest lie that Swami Aseemanand has confessed to the blasts. Shameless media is reporting absolute baseless things. These are all made up stories. His lawyer has come on record saying that Swami Aseemanand never confessed," he said.

A resolution adopted during the VHP meeting said, "The use of terms like Hindu terrorism or saffron terrorism is an insult to the entire Hindu community. If Congress tries to push this conspiracy to blame Hindus for terrorism, then they will have to face the consequences".

Singhal, who was re-elected as International President of VHP unanimously today, said that people have huge faith and hope in VHP and RSS leaders.
