RSS trying to trigger riots by distributing defamatory books on Prophet Mohammed: Mamata Banerjee


West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee made a sensational allegation against Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS). She said that the book which may incite communal violence has been obtained from a school and an FIR has been lodged.

West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Tuesday made a sensational allegation that the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) and its affiliates were distributing defamatory material against Prophet Mohammed with an aim to fan communal riots in the state.

Speaking at a public rally in Alipurduar in north Bengal, Banerjee alleged, “A book has come to my knowledge yesterday. It is a private book for class two students. RSS is distributing such books. We have recovered it from a school in Uluberia and an FIR has been lodged yesterday. The book, published as “inspired by West Bengal government”, contains defamatory content against Prophet Mohammed, and is being distributed among school children so that there is a communal riot.”

“We have filed FIR against them. Just imagine the extent of their nefarious plan, they are printing books themselves and distributing them in the market. Such books are being planted in school bags of children who are being asked to read it at home. They know, if they read it in schools they will be caught. Never fall for such traps,” Banerjee said.

Her allegation comes just two days after RSS conducted a yoga shivir in Howrah despite the state police’s refusal to grant permission for the event. The programme, organised to mark the 155th birth anniversary of Swami Vivekanand was conducted after the Calcutta high court gave its nod last week after the Sangh challenged the police’s role.
