Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan today said right wing organisations, including the RSS, had been trying to divide the country for the last several years.

Addressing a "communal harmony rally" organised by CPI(M) here, he said it was unfortunate that such organisations were tryingto disrupt peace in the country.

Vijayan said it was now imperative to protect communal harmony.

He said the RSS had "adopted the organisational structure of Mussolini and the ideology of Hitler. The two dictators had terrorised the world", he said.

The RSS had absolutely norole in India’s independence struggle, but actually took sideswith the British during the period, while all other parties jointly supported the fight against the British despite differences among them on several matters", he said.

He said Nathuram Godse, who assassinated MahatmaGandhi with a revolver, himself was a weapon in the hands ofRSS. The assassination was the result of a conspiracy, he alleged.

"In India, the RSS had now identified Muslims, Christians and Communists as their internal enemies and were carrying out attacks to eliminate them", Vijayan said, adding they were instigating communal violence to destroy unity among the people.

Earlier, inaugurating the office construction of Kannada daily 'Vartha Bharathi' he said it was not wrong on the part of a daily to take sides, but they should be with the common man.

Commending ‘Vartha Bharathi’ for upholding secular ideals and fighting communal elements, he said the daily had stood for the cause of the poor and depressed sections of society while many other media groups were now being influenced by capitalist and corporate forces.
