Youth leader Rahul Gandhi has said that he felt there was not much difference between the banned outfit Students Islamic Movement of India (SIMI) and the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) as both were “fanatical” and held “fundamentalist” views.
When a reporter told him he had made a controversial statement equating the two groups on Tuesday in Tikamgarh, the young MP said he failed to see any controversy in it.
The Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh on Tuesday said its response to the Ayodhya title suit verdict will be within 'law and Constitution' and indicated that further legal options can be availed of if the ruling is not upto its expectation.
"Of course, the aspirations of the Hindu society are that there should be a temple at Ram Janmabhoomi. Our response to the verdict will be according to those wishes. We will try to ensure that Ram temple is constructed there," RSS chief Mohan Bahgwat said
