New Delhi: Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh chief Mohan Bhagwat is learned to have told a group of columnists on Tuesday that “openness” is a characteristic of Hindus and it should be preserved. He added that the community needed to be “awakened”, but not against anyone.
Bhagwat held the meeting in Delhi’s Chhattarpur area with 70 columnists from across India in an effort to clear misconceptions about the organization.
Some columnists who were present at the meeting were of the view that it was “fruitful discussion” on wide-ranging topics.
“Openness is the characteristic of Hindus, that must be preserved,” said Bhagwat quoted a columnist.
Bhagwat highlighted that Hindus should be united and alert, he said there was no danger as long as Hindus are organized and alert.
As per the columnist, the RSS leader said “Hindus are to be awakened, but not against anyone. They need not be reactionary. We don’t classify anyone. We don’t doubt anyone,”.
On the agitation against the Citizenship Amendment Act, Bhagwat repeated that the law could be disliked or demanded to be changed, but buses cannot be burnt or public property destroyed.
“That is not democracy. But now they are waving Indian flags, holding the Constitution and even saying ‘Bharat Mata Ki Jai’. So who’s changing? Who’s winning?” Bhagwat asked.
Last year, Bhagwat had also met representatives of international media organizations posted in India.
