HENB | Nagpur | October 22, 2105:: RSS Sarasanghachalak (Chief) Mohan Bhagwat addressed the nation today at RSS Vijaya Dashami celebrations at Reshimbagh Maidan in Nagpur on Thursday morning. Well known Scientist Dr. V. K. Saraswat presided over the Vijayadashami Event. The RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat said that there is a feeling of hope in the country now.
“Two years ago, there was an atmosphere of disappointment, now there is a feeling of hope in the country now,” Bhagwat said in his annual address on the occasion of Vijaya Dashami here.
The RSS chief also said that India’s image in the world has improved. “A new idea of India is rising in the world. Whenever there’s a crisis situation in the world, we come forth to help,” he said.
In his speech, the RSS chief pitched for the uniform civil code, though he did not say it directly.
“We have to think seriously about our ever-rising population. Population needs to be controlled, there should be a single policy for the entire country,” he said.
With Dadri-like incidents triggering outrage, RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat said “small episodes” cannot damage “Hindu culture”.
In his 55-minute speech, telecast live by Doordarshan for the second consecutive year, Bhagwat, however, refrained from making any direct reference to recent incidents of communal and caste tensions.
Describing Hindutva as a guiding force in India, Dr Bhagwat said, ” What is the chord that can keep our diverse society together? (1) Certainly, it is our eternal culture – Hindu culture – that accepts and respects all forms of diversity and which precisely forms the nature and value system of every Bharatiya. (2) The very culture, based on which our ancestors build their lives, toiled hard to nurture and foster it, and even sacrificed their live for its protection and honor, even to this day, their glory is a source of inspiration and ideal for us. (3) This divine motherland endowed with richest and wealth, who helped us realize the truth that formed the foundation of that culture and the Dharma born out of it, whose abundance of divine wealth nurtured us and made us magnanimous, the love and devotion for whom we inherited from our ancestors, such motherland of ours, even today has the power to arouse the creative spirit of every individual of this country. Through these three factors an individual can easily be assimilated while keeping ones diverse identity of language, region, sect and party intact. Also, even while safeguarding one’s smaller identity, one becomes part of the larger social identity. The humanitarian spirit, vision and philosophy based on the above three factors, the decision in conformity and equally matched practice is what is called Hindutva.
This lifestyle of Hindu society, from time immoral, even long before the term Hindu was coined, evolved in keeping with the time on the basis of above three factors. The onus of good and bad of this nation ever rusts only on their shoulders.
For last 90 years, RSS has been constantly trying to galvanize the energies of Hindu society, the Dispenser of India’s destiny, for nation building. Sangh founder Dr. Hedgewar had very well understood that the task of nation and society building cannot be entrusted on contract. When an efficient and organised society works persistently for the betterment of nation for a long time, then only the nation becomes prosperous. The mission of RSS is to prepare such workers who can organize the society for this noble cause. Today, everyone can see the impact created by Swayamsewaks coming out of the easy and simple modus operandi of RSS. Now they not only get respect and affection from a grateful society, but also the recognition of the whole world”.
Bhagwat said India’s external security was threatened by “enmity-minded” Pakistan and “expansionist” China, besides emergence of fundamentalist organisations like ISIS.
“We have to guard against them. Some young people are also getting misguided by the ISIS ideology.
Former chairman of Defence Research and Development Organization (DRDO) Vijay Kumar Saraswat, who is currently member of Niti Aayog (former planning commission), was the chief guest at the rally.
Maharashtra CM Devendra Fadnavis and Union minister Nitin Gadkari also attended the RSS function.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi also extended his greetings to all Swayamsevaks on the 90th foundation day of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh.
