RSS' Bhaiyyaji Joshi says Hindu community 'not synonymous' with BJP, political fight should not be linked to religion
  • Joshi is in Goa to speak at a two-day conclave on 'Vishwaguru Bharat', an RSS perspective.

  • The RSS leader said it was the Hindus who hailed from a great civilisation and were witness to the 'ups and downs of India'.

  • Joshi pointed out that it didn’t mean working against any other community but rather working primarily for Hindus.

RSS general secretary Suresh Bhaiyyaji Joshi on Saturday said the Hindu community is not synonymous with the BJP and opposing the saffron party does not amount to opposing Hindus, ANI reported."Political fight will continue but it should not be linked to Hindus," he further said, as per ANI.

Joshi added that anybody who wants to work in India will have to do so with the Hindu community and for their empowerment.

Addressing a lecture on the topic "Vishwaguru Bharat, an RSS perspective" at Dona Paula near Panaji, Joshi referred to his communication with an intellectual who had said that India should become a "super-rashtra" in the year 2020.

"Anybody who wants to work (in India) will have to work with the Hindu community by taking them along and for their empowerment. Hindus have witnessed the rise and fall of India since time immemorial. India cannot be separated from the Hindu community. They have always been at the centre of this nation," Joshi said in Marathi.

He also added that since Hindus are not communal or antagonist, "nobody should be reluctant to work for the Hindu community".

The RSS leader further said, "The world says India will become a superpower in 2020, but I remember my conversation with an intellectual who had said that India should become a super-rashtra (super nation) in 2020".

Goa chief minister Pramod Sawant was among those who attended the lecture.

"To create awareness and unity among Hindus does not amount to taking an action against other community. No one should feel it that way. We can say with utter self confidence before the entire world that Hindus becoming strong won't result in destructive activities, but (such proposition) will work for the society and humanity," he added.

Invoking history, Joshi said Hindus never invaded other countries. "Whatever wars Hindus had fought were for self defence. Everyone has the right to self defence," he
said.

"It is India's duty to teach the world to walk on the path of samanvay (coordination). Nobody else other than India and Hindus can do this," Joshi said.

"But we are from the (Hindu) community which says that we have our own path so as you. When the world will accept this ideology, then all the issues would get solved. It is the duty of India to take the world on that path," he added.
