Further to my RTI request of 01.01.2018 to VicePresident's office.

I am happy to report to our andolan's subscribers that the Vice President's
website no longer contains the Afzal Guru remarks delievered in his speech
made on the occasion of release of a book on tRSS pracharak the late Ashok
Singhal on 7.12.2017.


The issue IAC was concerned with was the impropriety of a Constitutional
officer linking the iconic national song Bande Mataram with Afzal Guru, and
to underscore that the 'Bande Mataram' is not the theka / jaagir of RSS
(who had nothing to do with the song anyway) to be dishonoured like this
for petty politics.
