The United Progressive Alliance (UPA) government was branding Hindus as terrorists to veil its "complete failure to combat rampant terrorism", Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh (RSS) chief KS Sudershan said on Sunday.
"As elections are around the corner, the government has floated the term 'Hindu terrorism' to gain political mileage," Sudershan told reporters here Sunday after addressing an RSS gathering.
"There is nothing as Hindu terrorism. In fact, terrorism cannot be associated with any religion like Hindu, Muslim or Christian. It is disgraceful that the government is linking terrorism with religion," he added.
Sudershan is in the city to participate in a five-day annual meet of the RSS' Awadh region unit, which started Nov 21. The Vishwa Hindu Parishad and Bajrang Dal are also participating.
