New Delhi: The Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) organisation has been accused of using temples as a breeding ground for illegal activities by a Kerala Devaswom minister.

Devaswom minister Kadakampally Surendran said on a Facebook post that he was receiving several complaints every day about organisations like the RSS misusing temple by making it a hub of illegal activities.

The Devaswom minister also alleged that the RSS was trying to push believers away from temples and was making the temple a storage for weapons where people were being trained how to use a weapon.

“It is necessary to distance apprehensions in the society regarding this. Temples are centres of traditions and beliefs,” Surendran said.

“Such anti-social activities that destroy the secular nature and peaceful environment of the state will not be allowed,” the minister further added.
