Cong in bind over anti-Christian violence

Posted on Sat, Oct 4, 2008

New Delhi (Indian Express): Even as the ruling Congress could not spell out a definite action plan to tackle the incidents of anti-Christian violence in Orissa and Karnataka, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on Friday, in an apparent bid to send out a strong message, asked Home Minister Shivraj Patil to brief the Cabinet separately on the issue.

While the Congress had been warning respective state Governments of "grave consequences", a press briefing at the Congress headquarters brought to the fore the confusion prevailing in the party over its approach to attacks on Christians and their institutions. There was also the usual diatribe against the state Government, Bajrang Dal and other Sangh Parivar affiliates.

To queries if the party would seek a ban on Bajrang Dal, AICC spokesperson Abhishek Manu Singhvi said, "What purpose will the ban serve if the state does not act? It is after all a matter of policing."

Asked why the same logic should not be applied to SIMI, he said the outfit was already banned.
