AHMEDABAD: Rahul Gandhi's comment equating the "fanatical" RSS with SIMI, have met strong reactions, significantly, from Muslims supporting the RSS. Rashtrawadi Muslim Manch, which was formed by the RSS in 2002 to include members from the minority community to its fold, has stated in a media brief that Congress leaders have this tendency to propagate falsehood before elections in order to appease Muslims to strengthen its vote bank.

"As elections for Bihar assembly and civic polls in Gujarat are to take place, Gandhi has equated RSS with SIMI to mislead Muslim community. But Muslims have realised these tactics adopted by the Congress," said the Manch's regional coordinator Yasin Ajmerwala.

The Manch has sought an apology from Gandhi.
