criticized the incidents of lynching
The RSS chief said that people cannot be differentiated on the basis of their way of worship. He attacked the people involved in the incidents of lynching. Said, ‘They are against Hindutva.’ However, he said that some false cases of lynching have been registered against the people.
There is no threat to Islam in India
Bhagwat said, ‘Don’t get caught in this cycle of fear that Islam is in danger in India.’ He said that development is not possible without unity in the country. The RSS chief insisted that the basis of unity should be nationalism and pride of ancestors.
