New Delhi. Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) sarsanghchalak Mohan Bhagwat on Friday said India’s concept of nationalism is based on ‘Vasudhaiv Kutumbakam’ and does not pose a threat to any other country and hence 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… Hence, there cannot be Hitler in India and if there is one, the people of the country will overthrow him.”
He said, “Everybody talks about the world market, it is only India who talks about Vasudhaiva 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 based on either religion or a language or common interest of the people.
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 President 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. (agency)
