RSS front organisations launch violent attacks on Police stations and policemen. Hooliganism rampant in UP

NB: The Bajrang Dal and VHP are fronts of the RSS. We can see what respect they have for the law, and what they plan to do to the Indian constitution. It is utter hypocrisy for the Modi government to criticise Maoist violence when their parent organisation is unleashing controlled mobs as and when they like. It is clear that these musclemen believe the BJP victory in UP is a license to run riot, because they are assured of political protection. Let us see whether the BJP's leaders have any use even for the mask of respect for law. Judges, magistrates and IPS/IAS officers can curb this hooliganism, but it will require courage and a willingness to remember their oath of office, which many senior elected representatives have forgotten. India is not the fiefdom of a private army. DS
