Mohan Bhagwat

The RSS chief, on Wednesday, said the concept of “Hindu Rashtra” is being taken seriously.

“Now, when the Sangh is receiving the affection and confidence of people and also has become strong, the concept of Hindu Rashtra is being taken seriously,” he said.

“Many people agree with the concept, but are opposed to the word ‘Hindu’ and they prefer to use other words. We don’t have any issue with that. For the clarity of concept – we will keep emphasising the word Hindu for ourselves,” he said.

Bhagwat said that some people were spreading fear that minorities were in danger, but he insisted that this was not the character of the Sangh or of Hindus.

“The Sangh resolves to stand on the side of brotherhood, amity and peace, Bhagwat said at the RSS Dussehra rally in Nagpur.
