“I am a Christian. I was born as a Christian and practise that religion. I am a church-going Christian. But I have also learnt many things about RSS,” he said. “Can the entire Sikh community be responsible for Indira Gandhi’s assassination,” Thomas asked. He said he became an admirer of the RSS in 1979 when he was posted as district judge of Kozhikode, adding that simple living and high thinking was its hallmark. During the Emergency, RSS was the only non-political organisation which fought against it, he said. “We owe very much to RSS for sacrificing many lives for regaining our fundamental rights,” said Thomas. “The propaganda that RSS is anti-minority is also baseless,” he said, adding that he is a great admirer of the organisation as it gives importance to discipline.
