Government protecting Islamic terrorists: Togadia

November 4th, 2008 - 9:29 pm ICT by IANS  

Narendra ModiNew Delhi, Nov 4 (IANS) Vishwa Hindu Parishad leader Praveen Toghadia Tuesday alleged that the Congress-led central government is trying to protect Islamic terrorists by maligning Hindus and the army.“I blame this government for trying to malign Hindus and army in order to protect Islamic terrorists. It is being done under the Italy-born Sonia’s (Gandhi) guidance,” he told reporters.

He was referring to the Oct 24 arrest of Sadhvi Pragya Singh Thakur, along with her two alleged accomplices Shyam Bhavarlal Sahu and Shiv Narain Singh Kalsangra, for their suspected involvement in the Sep 29 serial bomb blasts in Malegaon and Modasa. Six people were killed in the blasts.

Togadia denied he knew Pragya ever, but added that being a “forensic expert” he knew that the evidence against her was false.

Ironically, the VHP international secretary general refused to comment when asked about the arrest of Ashwin Patel, joint secretary of the VHP’s Gujarat unit, by the Narendra Modi government and his being charged with sedition, defamation and inflaming communal passions.

Patel was arrested for being the source of a flurry of SMSes after the July 26 serial blasts in Ahmedabad which mocked at Modi for his failure to prevent the blasts that left 57 people dead. A few SMSes suggested Modi’s hand in the blasts.
