Social Democratic Party of India (SDPI) has slammed the Bharatiya Janata Party for its terror tolerance and inaction over Hindutvawadi forces, the latest example of which is the arrest of Pradeep Kurulkar by Maharashtra Anti-Terrorism Squad, after being found guilty of anti-State activities and passing out sensitive security and intelligence information to a PIO girl. It has been revealed that Kurulkar had long association with Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh which does not stop claiming its Desh Bhakti.

In a press statement, Mohammad Shafi, national vice president of SDPI slammed the BJP for repeatedly failing the tolerance test and demanded to probe Kurulkar’s links with the RSS. It is shocking that scientist Pradeep Kurulkar who worked for DRDO’s premier Research & Development Establishment (Engineers) laboratory as its director in Pune is “found guilty of anti-national activities, reportedly had close links with the RSS”, the SDPI leader said.

Described as an outstanding scientist, “Kurulkar and his family’s long association with the RSS exposes the organisation’s fake love for the nation”, said Shafi and demanded that Kurulkar be declared a terrorist and traitor and his links with the RSS be closely investigated. The BJP is lecturing Muslims and minorities on tolerance without checking its own level of tolerance when it comes to the anti-national elements within its folds.
