‘Indian and Hindu is a synonymous geo-cultural identity. We are all Hindus,’ says the RSS chief
Shillong, Sept 27: RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat has said that the Sangh’s mission is to make India attain all-round development, and it advocates sacrifices for the country by relinquishing individual selfish ends.
Bhagwat made the comments at a public meeting here on the first day of his two-day visit to the hill State on Sunday.
“The Sangh’s mission to make our society organised so that India attains all-round development. RSS teaches sacrifice for the country by giving up individual selfish ends,” the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) chief said.
He said inherent faith in age-old values based on spirituality is the binding force among people of the country.
“Indian and Hindu is a synonymous geo-cultural identity. We are all Hindus,” Bhagwat said.
He said Indians learnt the tradition of sacrifice from the country’s ancient history.
“Our ancestors had visited various foreign lands and imparted the same values to Japan, Korea, Indonesia and many other countries,” he said.
Bhagwat also said India had served humanity by sending vaccines to various countries during the Covid-19 pandemic, and stood beside Sri Lanka during its economic crisis.
“When India becomes powerful, every citizen becomes powerful,” he said.
During his two-day visit to the Northeastern State, Bhagwat will meet various RSS functionaries and leaders of social organisations. (PTI)
