Malerkotla Quran sacrilege accused was ex-pracharak of RSS

The Justice Ranjit Singh (retd) Commission report on sacrilege incidents in Punjab has claimed that the main accused in the Malerkotla Quran sacrilege case of 2016 was a former pracharak of the Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh (RSS), the BJP ideological mentor.In the first report submitted by the one-man panel to the state government on June 30, which was leaked on Tuesday, Justice Ranjit Singh (retd) has stated that one of the accused in the case, Vijay Kumar (a Delhi-based businessman) was found to be an old associate of RSS and had even remained a pracharak (full-time volunteer) at New Delhi from 1999 to 2001.

Notably, the commission’s first report was about the sacrilege of Guru Granth Sahib at Bargari and the police firing in Kotkapura and Behbal Kalan. However, the panel suddenly mentions the Quran sacrilege incident on page 181 where it gives the details about the investigation into the Bargari incident by special investigating team (SIT) of Punjab Police, led by DIG Ranbir Singh Khatra.Over the sacrilege incident in Malerkotla, the commission submitted a detailed report to chief minister Captain Amarinder Singh on Thursday.
