Bharatiya Janata Party Dehradun, Mar 31 (ANI): The Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) on Tuesday threatened to launch a nation-wide movement if the National Security Act (NSA) invoked against Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Varun Gandhi, was not withdrawn immediately.

“We strongly demand the withdrawal of NSA against Varun Gandhi or we will launch a big movement across the country,” VHP President Ashok Singhal told reporters here.

Singhal alleged that the voice of Hindutva was being suppressed.

“Varun Gandhi and other people, who are raising the pitch of Hindutva are being arrested and their voice is being suppressed. In a democratic system, everybody is free to express opinion. Let the society make a judgement and not the state,” he added.

The VHP President also talked about the Ayodhya issue, saying the Parishad wanted the Parliament to enact a law for the construction of a grand temple at the disputed site.

Singhal also demanded that all intruders from Bangladesh who have made India their home, should sent back.

VHP International Working President S. Vedantam has alleged that the video clippings of Varun Gandhi’s speech is doctored.

“Gandhi is an educated person and I strongly believe he would not have made such provocative speeches at his level,” Vedantam said. (ANI)
