Sri Ram Sene chief Pramod Muthalik on Wednesday claimed that "bigger Hindutva organisations" have become "inactive" leaving the smaller groups to unite for the cause.
"Today bigger Hindutva organisations have become inactive. On the contrary, smaller organisations which are striving sincerely for the cause of Hindutva are getting united," Muthalik said, addressing the All India Hindu Convention in Goa through tele-conferencing.
Muthalik has been banned from entering Goa by the state government fearing a law and order situation, which has forced him to cancel his visit for the convention.
"I am confident that this Hindu Parivar will definitely establish Hindu Rashtra with divine power and Hindu unity," he said.
Muthalik, who was linked to the 2009 Mangalore pub attacks, said BJP government was displaying double standards on the issue of Hindutva.
"BJP government has refrained a real Hindu activist like me from entering Goa although every Indian citizen has freedom of speech and expression. On one hand, anti-nationals like drug mafia, Taliban are allowed entry in the state, a patriot like me is disallowed," he commented, adding "I feel proud that BJP fears a real Hindu activist."
Referring to the ongoing controversy surrounding union minister Sushma Swaraj and Lalit Modi, Muthalik said, "She assisted corrupt Lalit Modi on humanitarian grounds as latter's wife is suffering from cancer."
Muthalik said that on the same ground Sadhvi Pragya Singh Thakur, a key accused in 2008 Malegaon blast case, should also be assisted.
"On the contrary, on similar humanitarian grounds, no one assists Sadhvi Pragya Singh who too is suffering from cancer and is in jail for years. This is unfortunate," he added.
