KOLKATA: RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat today said his organisation was working to make the Hindu community united and strong, asserting it is “not opposed to anybody”.
Bhagwat also said only the weakness of the Hindus are to be blamed for their oppression in neighbouring Bangladesh.
He was speaking at a RSS rally here for which the city police had earlier refused permission. The Calcutta High Court yesterday allowed RSS to hold the programme.
“We have formed this organisation not to oppose anybody, but to strengthen ourselves. The Hindu Samaj has a glorious history in this country,”, he said, and asked, “Despite such glorious history is the condition of the Hindu Samaj same, the way it should have been?”
“Are the Hindus able to perform their religious rites and activities freely and fairly across India? Are human rights of the Hindus well established in this country?,” he asked.
“If the answer is no, then why do you get surprised when Hindus are being oppressed in Bangladesh? The Hindus are only responsible for their own condition. Hindus are facing this situation because they are not united and strong. We should work in uniting the Hindu Samaj, without opposing anybody,” Bhagwat said. (AGENCIES)
