RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat’s statement on India’s nationalism
Bhagwat said only India talks about Vasudhaiv Kutumbakam
Our idea is not a threat to any other country
New Delhi. Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) sarsanghchalak Mohan Bhagwat said on Friday that India’s concept of nationalism is based on ‘Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam’. It does not pose a threat to any other country and that is why there can be no Hitler here. Bhagwat was addressing a lecture series organized by Sankalp Foundation and former civil services officer Manch.
“Our nationalism does not pose any threat to others. It is not our nature. Our nationalism says that the world is one family (Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam) and furthers this feeling among the people across the world. Therefore, there cannot be Hitler in India and if there is one, the people of the country will overthrow him.
Only India talks about Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam – Bhagwat
He said, “Everybody talks about the world market, it is only India that talks about Vasudhaiv Kutumbakam. Not only this, we also work to make the world a family.” He emphasized that India’s concept of nationalism is different from other concepts of nationalism, which are either based on religion or a language. Or are based on the common interest of the people.
We are sons not the owners of the land
Sarsanghchalak said diversity has been a part of India’s concept of nationalism since ancient times and “different languages and different ways of worshiping God are natural to us”. This land not only provides food and water, but also value. That’s why we call it Bharat Mata. We are not the owners of this land, we are its sons. This is our holy land, karmabhoomi, so we are all one.
In the program Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Mandir Nirman Samiti Chairman and former Principal Secretary to Prime Minister Nripendra Mishra said that since 36 years Sankalp Sanstha is encouraging promising students. During the lecture series, the Sarsanghchalak of Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh, Dr. Mohan Bhagwat also released the English version of the book ‘Indian Perspective’, ‘Indian Perspective’, compiled by Sankalp. The book has been published by Prabhat Prakashan.
