Hindu dharma is implicitly at odds with monotheistic intolerance. What is happening in India is a new historical awakening... Indian intellectuals, who want to be secure in their liberal beliefs, may not understand what is going on. But every other Indian knows precisely what is happening: deep down he knows that a larger response is emerging even if at times this response appears in his eyes to be threatening.

Stick to Hindutva on development policy: RSS

Press Trust of India
Wednesday, October 12, 2005

Bhopal, October 12: Opposing reservation for minorities, RSS general secretry Mohan Bhagwat on Wednesday said a blanket reservation policy for entire country was not feasible and asked policy makers to frame development programmes based on Hindutva.

“The United States, by acting as the self-proclaimed police of the world, is influencing country’s economic policies. Development is not possible till policies are framed on basis of our identity-Hindutva,” Bhagwat said, at a RSS function organised to mark the Vijayadashami festival.

Claiming that there were no minorities in the country in actual terms, the senior RSS leader said, “while they are in majority in other states, Hindus are in minority in Kashmir”.

“A blanket reservation policy for all the state is not feasible,” he said.

“If country does not revert back to its identity of Hindutva, dictats of so-called minorities will rule the roost. Instead of effecting growth, this will break the nation,” he said adding that everyone has entered into a race to gain minority status to reap special benefits.

Alleging that country’s borders were insecure, Bhagwat claimed that apart from Pakistan, India faced threat from China and Bangladesh.

“Since a war with India at this point of time will retard its development plans, China is slowly spreading its wings to areas around the country to gain supremacy,” he claimed.

Claiming that terrorism became a world-wide problem as no one stood against it, Bhagwat said by merely asking for dismantling of terrorist camps in Pakistan and Bangladesh, the problem would not be solved.

He said India had the only liberal culture in the world and asked people to stick to their roots.

“Even President A.P.J. Abdul Kalam has been stressing in regrouping strength of people and reviving rich Indian culture,” he said adding RSS was the organisation committed to show people ‘their self-identity’.
