GUWAHATI: Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh chief Mohan Bhagwat today said India has forgotten all enmity against Pakistan but same is not the case with the neighbouring country.
Addressing a gathering of RSS ‘swayamsevaks’ in North- East here, days before three states of the region go to polls, the RSS chief said India will survive as long as Hinduism thrives.
“Struggle took place. Pakistan was born. ‘Bharatvarsh’ forgot the enmity with Pakistan from August 15, 1947. Pakistan has not forgotten it yet. This is the difference between Hindu nature and other nature,” Bhagwat said at the rally.
Bhagwat said all ancient civilisation such as Mahenjodaro, Harappa and our culture developed in places which are now in Pakistan.
“Why didn’t Pakistan tell (India) to take another name since every thing of ‘Bharat’ has emerged from here. So we are ‘Bharat’ and you take any other name.
“They did not say this and rather wanted to separate from the name ‘Bharat’. Because they know that with the name ‘Bharat’, Hindutva comes in. And Hindutva is there, so is ‘Bharat’,” he said.
The RSS chief said that despite its diversity, India was united because of Hindutva. (AGENCIES)
