Why can't communal groups like Bajrang Dal, VHP, RSS be banned: Mayawati

The Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) supremo Mayawati has said that communal organisations that whip up sentiments and divide society on religious lines like Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) and Bajrang Dal should be banned.

She made the statement in wake of the high court banning the caste-based rallies in the run up to the Lok Sabha elections.

Mayawati said that the communal groups that indulge in provocative acts should be banned as well but there is no action on them.

On the recent interim order of the Allahabad High Court, Mayawati said that the same provisions that stop caste groups' meets should apply to the organisations that divide society on religious lines, vitiate harmony and communalise the entire society.

That the BJP draws strength from the militant cadres of the RSS, VHP and Bajrang Dal is a known fact but none of the parties that oppose the arms training to these cadres, have taken up this issue earlier.

The BSP has also ruled UP but when in power, Chief Minister Mayawati didn't send such reports to centre that it should ban the groups for causing disharmony.

The Samajwadi Party (SP) is another political party that is known for its strong rhetoric against BJP and its supporting groups, but it also remained passive to growing activities of the organisations like Hindu Vahini in Uttar Pradesh. Worst, the Congress has remained apathetic towards the strengthening Hindutva groups.
