RSS chief attended an event in Angul district on Monday that was attended by the Union Ministers Dharamendra Pradhan, Jual Oram, State BJP president Basanta Panda and other dignitaries. Around 700 RSS office bearers in Odisha were also present there.
Attending the programme Bhagwat said RSS does not play politics, it is committed to Hindutva. Hindu is not format of a religion, rather it is a way of life.
Hindus across the world have always given a message of peace and tolerance and minorities and Muslims are safe in India and live happily, he added.
“Hinduism is a way of life and not just a religion; Hindus across the world have always given a message of peace and never tried to interfere in the independence of any country”, Bhagwat said.
“When the western world looks east, they find India and China. But they (western world) do not have faith in China due to its aggressive attitude. All have faith in India. India can emerge as a global leader,” he added.
The RSS chief also exhorted people to join the outfit for better understanding and to serve the country and make the Nation strong.
Addressing the audience of the programme, Bhagwat said, “People should attend RSS Sakhas which are spread across the country. One should spend one or two years in RSS and see how the Sangh works and leave if not satisfied.”
RSS is devoted to the country and its working is transparent. “Nothing is secret in the Sangh,” he said.
Tracing the country’s history to ancient days, the RSS chief described India as a great nation.
“India never attacked any nation or occupied any country in the past. The country has also not imposed its idea or civilization on any nation. Rather it tolerates all faiths and gives shelter to all religions,” Bhagwat said and added that Hindutva believes in unity in diversity and Indianness.
Addressing the gathering, retired High Court justice PK Tripathy praised RSS for it nation building works. On the day, RSS cadres from across the State displayed martial arts.
