The RSS today demanded scrapping of the Justice (Retd) Rajender Sachar committee forthwith and dubbed the move as "height of appeasement of Muslims."

On the third and final day of its meeting here, the Akhil Bhartiya Pratinidhi Sabha (ABPS) of the Sangh passed a resolution asking the Centre to disband the Sachar panel which it felt was posing a threat to country's unity, integrity and true secularism.
The Sabha also opposed all moves to give minorities reservations on the basis of religion, RSS spokesman Ram Madhav, told reporters on sidelines of the concluding session of Sabha.

The RSS will not allow another partition of country on basis of religion, Madhav said adding, the Sachar Committee was asked to identify the states, regions, districts and blocks where there was dominant Muslim population. "Will this not push the country towards another partition, because precisely the same was the basis of 1947 partition," the resolution said.

It is very unfortunate that the committee even resorted to most dangerous move of dividing the armed forces on religious lines by seeking a headcount of Muslims. The government backtracked on the whole issue because of the firm stand taken by present and past top officials of armed forces, Madhav claimed.
