India is the traditional motherland of Hindu community, RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat said today as he pitched for societal unity where character is valued.
“Even though the languages are different, regions are different, creeds are different, culture of all is same. Entire world recognizes it as Hindu culture. And therefore, our community is recognised as Hindu community. This is the traditional mother land of Hindu community,” he said addressing an RSS rally near Pune.
He stressed on the need for unity in the society which would strengthen India as a nation.
“Dr (B R) Ambedkar had said that through the Constitution we managed to ensure political equality, but this political unity can not be sustainable until we achieve economic and societal unity.
“History of our country has been such that none of our rivals won here on his own, but due to differences amongst us. Hence, if we don’t forget our differences, then the Constitution won’t be able to safeguard us. Therefore, he stressed on creating a society which is rich in character and affectionate towards its people,” he said addressing the ‘Shiv Shakti Samagam’, considered one of the largest RSS congregations.
India, he said, needed to make itself stronger for its voice to be heard in the world.
“Shiva and Shakti (strength) should come together. Our society recognizes Shiva, but world recognises strength. Without strength, truth does not hold value it seems. We see wrongdoings of powerful nations are not objected to and the good things done by weaker nations are not valued. Indian culture is being talked about across the world. It was there earlier too. But it was not valued then,” he said.
