Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) chief Mohan Bhagwat has said that the "tortured" Hindus from across the world come to India for shelter.
Stating that India is a land of Hindus, the RSS chief said while addressing a public function at the Swami Vivekananda Maidan here, "The tortured Hindus from across the world come to the country and get shelter. Hindus believe in truth, but the world respects strength. There is strength in organisation. Being organised is the natural law".
"Hindutva is different from Hinduism and today the disturbed Western world is eagerly waiting with expectations towards India's Hinduism and it philosophy which has its roots deep in 'Sanatan Dharm' and shall revive their society out of the curse. So, to fulfill their expectations Hinduism has become more important today," he added.
As part of his four-day Tripura visit, Bhagwat addressed a mammoth rally of Tripura Hindu Malayama, where saints and believers gathered at the Swami Vivekananda Stadium. There, the RSS chief asked the Hindu believers to unite against the evil forces.
According to him, the best part of Hinduism, which earlier had its followers spread across from the Afghanistan to Burma, is that it does any mechanism of conversion and thus is not a threat to any religion.
Bhagwat also stated that in the multi-religious and multi-cultural Indian society, every citizen has the right to practice their own religion provided that they are devoted towards their motherland.
He also urged the Hindus to get organised and trained at the RSS "shakhas" (daily meetings), claiming that these were the only places where one could prepare for nation-building and self- development.
"The 'sanatan dharma' wants to work together with everybody on board", he further said.
