Kozhikode, March 3: At least three Rashtriya Swayam Sevak (RSS) activists were injured in the blast that took place near RSS office in Kallachi near Nadapuram, Kerala on Thursday night. The incident occurred at around 9 pm when some unknown miscreants hurled the bomb at RSS office.
However, injured were shifted to the nearby hospital after the incident took place. The police teams also rushed to the spot immediately and security has been tightened in the area. Earlier, the injured were admitted to a hospital in Kallachi but later shifted to Kozhikode medical college. The injured have been identified as Babu, Vineesh, Sudhir and Sunil.
A senior police official said, while Babu and Vineesh, who suffered severe injuries in the abdomen and legs, have been admitted to the Kozhikode Medical College Hospital (KMCH), the other two have been taken to a private hospital here. The investigation is underway to ascertain the motive behind the attack, he said.
As soon as this unfortunate incident took place, the RSS ideologue Prof. Rakesh Sinha condemned the attack and held chief minister Pinarayi Vijayan responsible for this violence. He said, "It is time for the Home Ministry to intervene.”
Taking a dig of CM, Sinha said that Vijayan’s cabinet is a 'cabinet of killers.' "The violent attacks are being done at the behest of the Chief Minister of Kerala. He is the initiator of the attacks. He is presiding a cabinet of killers. They are not innocents," he added.
"The violent activities of CPM are being patronised and promoted by Kerala CM Pinarayi Vijayan, who is the first accused in the killing of an RSS worker in 1960s. Technically, he is free, but morally and politically he is an accused," he said.
"The basic objective of violent activities, despite democratic protests of RSS all over the country, is to annihilate RSS workers in Kerala, to deter its extension in the state and secondly, to create provocation all over the country," he added.
Notably, there have been several violent incidents involving the RSS and the CPI workers in Kerala in the recent past. Earlier, RSS activist Satyan was beheaded in Kerala and also a 20-year-old BJP worker Niramal was hacked to death in Thrissur district last month. A similar incident had also taken place in the month of January when a BJP worker was stabbed to death allegedly by CPI(M) activists at Andaloor in Dharmadam, the constituency of Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan. However, no immediate action was taken against murderers or no measures were taken to curb such attacks on by state government or by CM.
Apart from Kerala, West Bengal is also one of those states where several RSS activists and BJP workers are been attacked by unknown leftist workers and hacked to death. The state government, however, is not taking any of the actions or measures in order to curb such activities.
