Rashtriya Swayam Sevak Sangh (RSS) leader Prof Rajinder Singh today
Warned that the situation in Tamil Nadu which is witnessing a spate
of communal killings, would go out of control unless strong action
was taken without pressure or favour.

Addressing a press conference here after touring the state, Singh
said unless the people felt that the government was taking action
without pressure or favour, "they will not feel satisfied and may
he forced to take the law into their hands, which is dangerous and
a trend we have seen in the North-East".

Singh took strong exception to Chief Minister M Karunanidhi
remarking at a press conference yesterday that he was a friend of
the minority community.

This statement did not be fit the stature of a chief minister, he

"We would expect Karunanidhi to be the friend of all communities
and not just the minorities," he added.

Answering a query, Singh said the RSS will join the Vishwa Hindu
Parishad (VHP) in any stir it launches for the restoration of the
disputed shrines in Mathura and Kashi to the hindus.

He said that the restoration of the 'two temples' was on the VHP's
agenda and his organisation would provide all support to the VHP if
it proposed to launch an agitation over the issue. "Out of the
30,000 temples under dispute, we are claiming only three temples,
Mathura, Kashi and Ayodhya.

A couple of years ago he had asked the then Prime Minister
Narasimha Rao, to appeal to the Muslims to give up their demand for
the three shrines.
