The Great Grand son of Mahatma Gandhi had asked Rahul Gandhi to’ shut up and leave Gandhi alone’ in a retort to Rahul Gandhi’s accusation that the RSS killed Mahatma Gandhi, through a Tweet and sharing it in Facebook.
The copy of the Complaint is below.
“RSS spokesman Ram Madhav said, “The complainant wishes to point out that the statement by Rahul Gandhi was made deliberately, with ulterior political motive … equating the RSS with BJP and to spread hatred against both in sections of society.”
Charging Rahul with violating the model code of conduct, the RSS demanded “appropriate” action against him. In the contentious speech, Rahul had referred to the RSS and said “… They have killed Gandhiji, today they talk about Gandhiji.” RSS alleged that the unverified statements against it were made in a Muslim-dominated district. “He linked RSS to the BJP, a rival of the Congress,” the complaint reads.
Stressing that the media coverage of the speech by several TV channels and print media was sufficient evidence, the organization argued that such statements were made to spread hatred.
“The complainant submits that Rahul, by making offensive remarks in a predominantly Muslim area, has sent a message to the community that the RSS got Mahatma Gandhi killed. The utterances were clearly aimed at and amounted to an activity which may aggravate differences and create mutual hatred between Hindus and Muslims,” the complaint read.
Madhav, who is member, central executive committee, RSS, said he filed the complaint in Bangalore as all senior RSS functionaries are here in connection with the Akhil Bharatiya Pratinidhi Sabha.
