New Delhi: Arrested Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) leader Swami Aseemanand has confessed that he and other Hindu activists were involved in bombings at Muslim religious places because they wanted to answer every Islamist terror act with “a bomb for bomb” policy.

Aseemanand’s confession before a magistrate about the Malegaon, Samjhauta Express train, Ajmer and Mecca Masjid bombings has unravelled the “inner workings of the Hindutva terror network”, according to the weekly Tehelka magazine that claims to have obtained his 42-page signed confessional statement.

The Dec 18 statement made under Clause 164 of the Criminal Procedure Code (CrPC) is a legally admissible evidence that makes it crucial for the investigators probing the terror bombings targetting Muslims at religious and other places.

The magazine says that Aseemanand, of the Vanvasi Kalyan Ashram in Gujarat’s Dangs district, told the magistrate that in a 2006 meeting with other Hindu radicals, including murdered RSS leader Sunil Joshi and Thakur Pragya Singh, it was he who propagated the policy of bomb for a bomb.

“I told everybody that bomb ka jawab bomb se dena chahiye, (we should answer bombs with bombs),” said Aseemanand, in the statement made in Hindi. The swami, whose real name is Jatin Chatterjee, hails from Hooghly district in West Bengal and is a post-graduate in botany.

“I suggested that 80 percent of the people of Malegaon were Muslims and we should explode the first bomb in Malegaon itself.”

He said that he suggested Hyderabad, Ajmer Sharif shrine and the Aligarh Muslim University as other potential terror targets.

Joshi, Aseemanand said, suggested an attack on the Samjhauta train as it was basically Pakistanis who travel on it and “therefore, we should attack the train as well”.

Joshi, alleged to be the key conspirator of the Ajmer Dargah blast, was shot dead in Madhya Pradesh in 2007. He is suspected to have been killed by his own men to cover up the terror act, according to Rajasthan Police.

Aseemanand said that it was not just a rump Hindu radical group that engineered the blasts but RSS national executive member Indresh Kumar was also involved in carrying out the terror plots.

“Indreshji met me at Shabri Dham (Aseemanand’s ashram in Gujarat) sometime in 2005. He was accompanied by many top RSS functionaries. He had deputed Sunil Joshi for this job (terror attacks).”

Aseemanand, arrested last year, also confessed how he had motivated a bunch of RSS pracharaks and other Hindu radicals to carry out the terror strikes to target Muslims.

Aseemanand’s confession is the first direct evidence of the involvement of Hindutva extremists in the 2006 Malegaon blasts and the Samjhauta Express blast even though there were accusations of their involvement in the Mecca Masjid and Ajmer blasts.
