Odisha: Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) chief Mohan Bhagwat on Monday claimed that minorities were safe in India and Muslims “live happily here”. The RSS chief is on a three-day visit to Odisha.
He further added that his organisation was committed to “Hindutva” and does not play politics. “RSS does not play politics. It is committed to Hindutva, which means tolerance,” he said at an event that was attended by Union ministers Jual Oram and Dharamendra Pradhan and a large number of RSS workers.
At that event Bhagat said, Hinduism is a way of life and not just a religion. Hindus across the world have always given a message of peace and never tried to interfere in the independence of any country.
“When the western world looks east, they find India and China. But they (western world) do not have faith in China due to its aggressive attitude. All have faith in India. India can emerge as a global leader,” he said.
