New Delhi: Senior Samajwadi Party leader Azam Khan yesterday launched a scatching attack on the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) for its religious conversion campaigns saying the attempts by right-wing Hindu organisation will trigger civil war in the country.
Khan also said that the RSS is trying to create an atmosphere of lawlessness in the country.
“This will lead to a civil war... a war that can't be controlled,” Khan said.
Meanwhile, BJP MP from Gorakhpur, Yogi Aditynath, responded to Khan's statement by saying that it is a social issue and should not be associated with the Narendra Modi government.
"Conversion is a social issue and it has no association with the Modi government," Adityanath said.
He also called Khan a ‘pagal' (mad).
The Gorakhpur MP further questioned opposition parties for not supporting BJP-led NDA government's proposal to frame an anti-conversion law.
At several places Hindus were being converted, but the opposition leaders are not commenting on that, Adityanath said, adding that ‘it has been happening for ages'.
