Hinduism all about love, faith and intimacy with all: Dr Mohan Bhagwat, RSS Chief.
Upendra Bharti | HENB | Lucknow | Aug 28, 2016:: The RSS chief Dr Mohan Madhukar Bhagwat on Sunday said the ideology of Hinduism is not against anyone and it is all about love, faith and intimacy with all.
“The ideology of Hinduism is not against anyone. Hindutava is not about malice or opposition, but love, faith and intimacy with all,” Bhagwat said while addressing swayamsewaks at Saraswati Shishu Mandir here.
His remarks assume significance against the backdrop of several non-BJP parties alleging that RSS had a communal agenda and was anti-Muslim.
Bhagwat said, “We work for the country. It is not about ritualism. It is based on spiritualism and truth.”
He however said, “…but remaining weak is also not Hindusim. Hindus should be made prosperous. Not bigotry, but a society where there is warmth for all is needed.”
Bhagwat said, “Society is our God. We are here to serve the society, we should not think what we will get in return. We are working for all round development of Hindu nation. But there should be no arrogance that we are working for that.”
He said no work should be done in reaction to something, adding, Lord Buddha preached about nonviolence and tolerance.
“Mahabharat yudh dharma sthapana ke liye hua tha. Bhagwan Ram aur Bhagwan Krishna ne bhi dharm ke liye hi sab kuch kiya. Therefore every worker should work with positive attitude,” he said.
The RSS chief said that swayamsewaks would do whatever is required for Hindu ‘dharma’, culture and society.
He said Sangh is an organisation of Hindu society.
“Nothing else is required to take ‘Bharat’ to the peak of glory than maintaining unity and integrity of the country. We are working for praise of Bharat Mata everywhere, but there should be no impurity of thoughts,” he said.
Earlier on Saturday on his tour at Saraswati Shishu Mandir at Nirala Nagar of Lucknow, Dr Bhagwat addressed the local Swayamsevaks (volunteers) and the Karyakartas (office bearers) on various social topics.
Dr Bhagawat mentioned that the Christian Conversion, Cow trafficking, Love Jihad matters have been decreased during this two years due to the activism of RSS workers and the establishment of new Sakhas (units). He urged more Sakhas in new areas in the coming days.
On Saturday, Bhagwat hold a review meeting with the office-bearers of five prakalps (projects) — Samajik Samrasta (Social equality), Gram Vikas (Village development), Gau Sewa (Cow protection and preservation), Parivar Prabodhan (Family interaction and Relation) and Dharma Jagran (Regeneration of Righteousness) — aimed at increasing RSS’ association with the people.
Bhagwat also reportedly asked the members to increase the number of shakhas in their respective regions, and bring to the fore swayamsevaks who had been inactive for a long time. “Service of these experienced swayamsevaks could strengthen the organisation up to the grassroot level,” said a RSS office-bearer.
On Friday, Bhagwat asked members of the Sangh’s karya vibhags of eastern UP to reach out to blocks and villages with more young people and create an atmosphere where people could rely on RSS and its ideology. RSS Chief is now stationed at Lucknow Saraswati Sishu Mandir for his 5 days tour starting from 25th Aug to 29th Aug.
As per source, there will be a coordination meeting on 29th August in presence of Dr Bhagwat where all the sister concerns of RSS like ABVP, BMS, BKS, Seva Bharti, Sanskar Bharti, Grahak Panchayat, VHP, Bajrangdal and even BJP are likely to participate. This meeting will be very significant in view of the coming assembly election in Uttar Pradesh.
