What The Sangh Fears

  • That the saffron terror probe may get too close for comfort
  • Despite distancing itself from Swami Aseemanand and murdered pracharak Sunil Joshi, probe may establish a link between RSS leader Indresh Kumar and Joshi
  • A ban on the organisation
  • International taint that will bracket the Sangh with other terror outfits

What Are Its Problems

  • The BJP’s bad management of the saffron terror issue
  • Little help from the Madhya Pradesh government in sorting out the mess
  • BJP targeting the PM has not helped the Sangh’s defence

What It Hopes To Do

  • Get government to conduct a fresh probe into the terror cases
  • Distance itself from tainted  RSS members
  • Build a case to establish itself as a nationalist organisation
  • Try to contain the political repercussions of saffron terror
