Flaying the row over beef being served in Kerala House, Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) on 28 October said, Sangh Parivar organisations were not against beef being a part of the menu in Kerala government guest houses or hotels.
A day after the Delhi Police raid at Kerala House, which snowballed into a controversy, VHP, Kerala unit president, SJR Kumar, accused Hindu Sena, and Sri Ram Sena, of trying to give a bad name to the Narendra Modi government.
Kumar said, the Kerala House beef episode was the handiwork of bodies such as Hindu Sena, which was not a part of the Sangh Parivar.
“We don’t know anything about them. Their aim is to tarnish the Modi government’s image which has earned global acclaim. Sangh Parivar and its affiliates would never try to tarnish the Modi government’s image.
The Kerala House beef episode is the handiwork of organisations like Hindu Sena. We condemn it,” Kumar said.
The VHP leader reiterated that the Sangh Parivar outfits have never opposed serving beef in hotels across Kerala.
“Beef is served in almost all hotels across Kerala. VHP has been working in Kerala for the past 50 years and we haven’t created any problem so far. In such a situation, why should we go to New Delhi and create problems?” he asked.
“The Delhi Police has not created trouble by coming to Kerala House, but to provide protection from organisations such as Hindu Sena,” said Kumar.
