Those who indulge in lynching are against Hindutva, RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat on Sunday said at an event organised by the Muslim Rashtriya Manch on the theme ‘Hindustani First, Hindustan First’ Sunday night.
“They are against Hindutva. Though at times, some false cases of lynching have been registered against people,” Bhagwat said.
The RSS chief urged Muslims not to get “trapped in the cycle of fear” that Islam is in danger in India.
“Don’t get trapped in the cycle of fear that Islam is in danger in India,” he said at the event.
The RSS chief said that development is not possible without unity in the country, adding that the basis of unity should be nationalism and the glory of ancestors.
The only solution to Hindu-Muslim conflict is dialogue, not discord, he said.
“Hindu-Muslim unity is misleading as they’re not different, but one. DNA of all Indians are same, irrespective of religion,” Bhagwat said.
“We are in a democracy. There can’t be a dominance of Hindus or Muslims. There can only be the dominance of Indians.”
While beginning his speech, Bhagwat said he was attending the event neither for any image makeover nor for vote bank politics.
Bhagwat said neither the Sangh is in politics nor does it bother about maintaining an image. “It keeps on doing its work to strengthen the nation and for the welfare of all in the society,” he said.
