Not Hindu? you are not Indian: RSS chief

Dismissing India’s tradition of religious and cultural pluralism, Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) chief Mohan Bhagwat on Sunday said, “He who is an Indian is a Hindu and he who is not a Hindu is not an Indian.”

“For us, the word Hindu does not mean any religion but a way of life,” he said at an annual function of the RSS and the Hindu samagam (congregation) here.

But he also said India’s ethos of unity in diversity is the answer to problems facing the world today. He said the problems emanate from some communities’ attempts to bring about uniformity in the world


Milind Ghatwai Tags : Mohan Bhagwat, Manmohan Singh Posted: Monday , Mar 01, 2010 at 0327 hrs Bhopal:
RSS Sarsanghchalak Mohan Bhagwat on Sunday criticised Prime Minister Manmohan Singh for favouring minorities over Hindus, and alleged that the majority community was not getting its due in the country, especially in the Valley where there was a separate yardstick of justice for them.“How can someone of the level of Prime Minister say, in violation of the Constitution, that they (minorities) have the first claim over resources?” asked Bhagwat while addressing a Hindu Samagam (conclave) here.The RSS chief’s attack on the Prime Minister came when he was making a case that Kashmiri Pandits were being ignored while separatists and terrorists, including those who were killing Muslims, were being pardoned and encouraged. He blamed vote bank politics for the sorry state of affairs of Hindus in the Valley.

Peace talks only helped extremists to regroup, he said, wondering, “I don’t know if it’s nasha (intoxication) or vote ki asha (hope for votes). Baki sab ke liye ek nyay aur Hinduon ke liye anyay (there’s injustice for Hindus but a separate yardstick of justice for the rest.)”

Sun, 28/02/2010 - 8:51pm If one is not Hindu he could not be Indian: Bhagwat

Bhopal, Feb 28 (PTI) RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat today said that those who were Indians were Hindus and if one was not a Hindu he could not be an Indian.

"For us the word Hindu did not mean any religion but a way of life," he said at an annual function of the RSS and the Hindu Samagam here.

The Union Finance Minister had in his budget speech quoted from Chanakaya but this was totally out of context, Bhagwat said, adding that what Chanakaya had said was valid for his times and not the present-day India.

The RSS chief hit out equally at America and China for trying to undermine India in a number of ways.

Bhagwat said that while America dumped rejected and cheap drugs in India, China was making attempts to make sure that it alone was the most powerful power in South Asia.
