Excerpts from the speech of RSS Chief Dr Mohan Bhagwat at RSS Vijaya Dashami Celebrations at Reshimbagh, Nagpur:

  • “The year has been memorable for many reasons, such as people’s mandate in 2019 Loksabha Elections, Abolition of Article 370, historic Chandrayaan-2, Security of Borders, Control on Terrorist activities etc.”
  • ‘A developed Bharat creates fear in the minds of vested interests. Few Anti-India forces involved in divisive machinations. There is a Conspiracy to bring in name of RSS to few such incidents. Swayamsevaks will unite Society, to bring Sadbhavana’.
  • “Branding some incidents of social violence as ‘Lynching’ are actually meant to defame our country, Hindu society and create fear among some communities. Lynching is alien to Bharat and actually has its references elsewhere.”
  • ‘Different sections of the society should strive to increase goodwill, dialogues, cooperation among themselves. It is important to work for the goodwill, harmony, cooperation among all sections of society. Swayamsevaks have been taking efforts to enhance this.’
  • “We need Education which teaches, imbues respect on our ‘Swa’, such as Swadesh, Swabhaasha, Swabhoosha and other aspects of our nation. From Contents in the Teaching to Training the Teachers, we need a transformation in the system.”
  • “Media have a major and significant role in awakening the society and creating a conducive social atmosphere.”
  • “Hindustan is Hindurashtra. Hindus are those who believing in the underlying unity. Experiencing diversity as the manifestation of that unity. Those who consider not only human beings all living beings, animate and inanimate as their own are Hindus.”
  • “Those who belong to Bharat, those who are descendants of Bharatiya ancestors, those who are working for the ultimate glory of nation & joining hands in enhancing peace, respecting and welcoming all diversities; all those Bharatiyas are Hindus.”
  • “This is the appeal to you all, taking into account the requirements of current period, we all should cooperate and participate in this noble and sacred mission.” Dr Mohan Bhagwat
