New Delhi: BJP's Prime Ministerial face L K Advani may be of the view that slain Pakistan Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto favoured peaceful Indo-Pak relations, but RSS begs to differ.

RSS mouthpiece Panchajanya in its latest edition says Bhutto was 'never a friend of India' but she used to hog the media limelight in this country.

"Her whole family maintained enmity towards India. Her father Zulfikar Ali Bhutto used to vow to fight with India for 1000 years and talked about the concept of Islamic bomb to target India," it said.

It said Benazir promoted terrorism against India and herself became a victim of the menace.

The RSS view was contrary to Advani's statement earlier that the slain Pakistan People's Party leader 'sincerely desired friendly and peaceful relations between India and Pakistan'.

Advani had earlier got into trouble with the RSS after he praised Pakistan's founder Mohammad Ali Jinnah on a visit to that country.
