New Delhi: Attacking RSS, Congress leader Digvijay Singh today said its ideology was damaging peace of the country and asked the government to ban books spreading communal ideology.

Participating in a debate in Rajya Sabha on working of Home Ministry, he said, “Today, the biggest threat the country is facing is terrorism. What breeds terrorism is communal ideology...In the international arena, Taliban ideology is creating problem.

Sangh ideology is equally damaging peace.” The Sangh is an organisation which is not registered and has no membership in the country, he said, voicing concern over circulation of communal ideology via books and pamphlets.  

Referring to books that were spreading communal ideology, Singh said, “There are books like ‘Harvest of Hate' and ‘Kandhamal in crossfire' authored by Michael Parker and another book ‘Orissa in crossfire' by Brannon Parker. These books are published by India Foundation.”
