Diphu January 24: The Karbi Students’ Association (Mandal Enghi faction) through a press statement issued recently has urged all sections of Karbi people of Karbi Anglong and Dima Hasao to call a halt from the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) ideology stating that it is the starting place of the Bharatiya Janata Party. “The RSS is also against the culture and customs of the hills tribes of North East India and they stood for uniform civil code in India, though some members of the BJP seems to be taking part in some cultural activities of the Karbis and other hills tribes, they are doing this only for narrow electoral profit,” the statement mentioned.
The statement went ahead to say that the RSS with other members of the Sangh Parivaar like the VHP, Bajrang Dal and ABVP is against the creation of statehood for Karbis, Dimasas and other indigenous hills tribes. The organization further asserted that the recent assembling of the RSS cadres in Guwahati is not at all a good sign even for the Assamese people, leave aside the hills tribes like Karbi, Dimasa, Nagas, Arunachalis, Mizos and others. They will annihilate the minority with their hidden agenda of Hindutva.
A senior member of district RSS on condition of anonymity while ridiculing the statement said that there is no element of truth in their claim rather RSS is doing its best to preserve, propagate and flourish the ancient culture, religion and customs of the tribal people and constantly fighting to save them from embracing perverted western mores and spiritual conviction. This act of RSS is actually hounding a section of people who are hell bent to destroy the exclusive tribal civilization and sacred principles and contour them in western nature.
