Upendra Bharti | HENB | Haridwar | April 15, 2022:: Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) chief Mohan Bhagwat has said that ‘Akhand Bharat’ — Unified India, the dream of Swami Vivekananda and Maharshi Aurobindo, will be a reality in 10-15 years if common people also put a little effort. Bhagwat made this statement during a Prana Pratishtha ceremony in Haridwar.
RSS Bhagwat was speaking to a congregation of saints, seers and devotees in a Prana Pratishtha ceremony of the idol of Brahmalin Mahamandaleshwar Swami Divyanand Giri at Shri Krishna Niwas Ashram and Purnanand Ashram at Sanyas Road in Kankhal in Haridwar on Wednesday.
The RSS chief said that the speed with which the country was moving on the path of upliftment, it will take 10-15 years to become Akhand Bharat. He further said that the time would be half if upliftment picks up pace.
Bhagwat said, “We will talk about non-violence but also keep a stick in our hands because the world believes in power.”
Bhagwat also gave the reference of Swami Vivekananda and Maharshi Aurobindo for the becoming the unification of seperated Indian into one as ‘Akhand Bharat (united India).
RSS chief also put the example of lifting of Govardhan hill by the common men by their sticks, but the weight of main hill was lifted by the power of Lord Krishna. Drawing this inference Bhagwat clarified that the Akhanda Bharat would only be possible with the blessing and power of the Saints of India.
Appreciating India’s progress to that of a vehicle that only has accelerator and no brakes, the RSS chief said those trying to stop it will either step aside or be eliminated.
“India has to now grow big. The rise of ‘Dharma’ is the rise of India. There’s no stopping India, which has launched itself on the track of rise and upliftment. Those who try to stop it will either step aside of be eliminated. This is a vehicle which has an accelerator but no brakes,” Bhagwat said amid huge applause and chanting of ‘Jai Shri Ram’ from the audience.
The Shiv Sena, a BJP ally until a few years ago, always welcomed Bhagwat’s comments, but now said before realizing the goal of ‘Akhand Bharat’, the BJP must take control of Pakistan occupied Kashmir and rehabilitate Kashmiri Pandits in the Valley. Then comes next the control over Afghanistan and Sri Lanka etc.
Bhagwat’s remarks faced a retort from Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut who challenged the RSS chief to achieve the dream of Akhand Bharat in 15 days and not in 15 years.
Speaking to reporters, Raut said, “…first include POK in India, then Pakistan, Sri Lanka and then others to complete ‘Akhand Bharat’, who is stopping. However, don’t promise to do it in 15 years, do it in 15 days, instead.”
Raut said, “Bhagwat is a revered figure for the Sena and his thought of ‘Akhand Bharat’ is commendable”.
“Before establishing Akhand Bharat, Sangha Parivar and BJP must honor the champion of Akhand Bharat, Veer Savarkar with the Bharat Ratna award. At first RSS and BJP must prepare its road-map for Akhand Bharat…,” Routh told reporters in Mumbai in a retort.
Reacting to Bhagwat’s comments, AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi asked why ‘Akhand Bharat’ was not achieved in the last 8 years, Why Mohan Bhagwat is talking about making ‘Akhand Bharat’ in the next 15 years and on what basis the RSS chief is talking about the creation of ‘Akhand Bharat’.
A section of the Hindu Right believes in the concept of Akhand Bharat, while referring to pre-partition India (unified India) which streched to the present-day Pakistan, Bangladesh, Myanmar, Nepal, Bhutan, Sri Lanka and even Afghanistan.
