Bengaluru: Accusing RSS of marking houses of Ram Temple donors in Ayodhya, former Karnataka Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy on Monday alleged the move was similar to what the Nazis did in Germany.
“It appears that those collecting donations for the construction of Ram Mandir have been separately marking the houses of those who paid money and those who did not.”
“This is similar to what Nazis did in Germany during the regime of Hitler when lakhs of people lost their lives,” Mr Kumaraswamy tweeted.
However, the RSS dismissed the allegations, saying the comments do not qualify for any response.
In a series of tweets, the JD(S) leader, quoting historians, claimed that the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) was born in India around the same time when Nazi Party was founded in Germany.
“There are concerns on what will happen if the RSS tries to implement similar policies adopted by Nazis. The fundamental rights of people are being snatched away in the country now,” the Mr. Kumaraswamy alleged.
Expressing his apprehensions where these developments would take the country to, he claimed there was an undeclared emergency in the country as people cannot freely express their views.
“It is clear from the emerging trends that anything may happen in the country,” the former Chief Minister stated.
Meanwhile, RSS media-incharge E S Pradeep defying former Karanataka CM’s comments said, “Kumaraswamy’s comments do not qualify for any response.”
