Mohan Bhagwat, the leader of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), expressed his concerns about internal conflicts within India rather than focusing on external threats. During the closing ceremony of the RSS officers’ training camp in Nagpur, Bhagwat emphasized the importance of every Indian citizen working towards strengthening the unity and integrity of the country. He highlighted that instead of demonstrating our strength to adversaries at the borders, it is unfortunate that we are engaged in internal discord.
During his speech, Mohan Bhagwat remarked that India performed “admirably compared to other nations” during the global economic crisis and the subsequent COVID-19 pandemic. He also mentioned that India has been entrusted with the G20 presidency for the current year, expressing a sense of pride in this accomplishment.
“There are several schisms related to religion and creed in our society, Bhagwat said.
“Everyone should make efforts for (enhancing) India’s unity and integrity. And if there are any shortcomings, we must all work on them,” he added.
Some religions were from outside India, and “we had wars with them,” Bhagwat said.
“But the outsiders have gone. Now everyone is insider. Still, there are people here under the influence (of outsiders) and they are our people…this has to be understood. If there is any shortcoming in their thinking, then reforming (them) is our responsibility,” he said.
“Outsiders have gone, but practice of Islam’s is secure here for centuries,” he noted.
“Once upon a time, the entire world witnessed attacks as Islam spread from Spain to Mongolia. Gradually, people became aware and defeated the invaders. As a result, Islam was confined to its own region… The aggressors have vanished, and Islam now thrives in its secure space. This peaceful coexistence has endured for centuries,” he added.
