People lynching others are against Hindutva: RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat

New Delhi: Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), a Hindu right-wing organisation known for spreading hatred against Indian minorities particularly Muslims, has seemingly started efforts to change its anti-Muslim image.

RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat, speaking at a book launch event on Sunday, expressed his support for unity between Hindus and Muslims. “When people speak about the need for Hindu-Muslim unity, we say we are already one, we are not separate.”

‘Anyone who says Muslims should not live in India is not Hindu,’ he added.

He further denounced growing violence against Muslims and called for action against perpetrators. ”Cow is a holy animal but the people who are lynching others are going against Hindutva. Law should take its own course against them without any partiality,” he said.

During his speech, Bhagwat said he was attending the event neither for any image makeover nor for vote bank politics.

Mr. Bhagwat asserted that the DNA of all Indians is the same and they cannot be differentiated on the basis of worship. He said that the concept of Hindu-Muslim unity is misleading because there is nothing to unite as differences don’t exist in the first place.

“There can never be any dominance of either Hindus or Muslims; there can only be the dominance of Indians,” the RSS chief said.

He decried incidents of lynching of minorities and stated that those who are indulging such violence were “against Hindutva”.

He added, however, that sometimes false cases of lynching have also been registered against people. “If a Hindu says that no Muslim should live here (in India), then that person is not a Hindu. Cow is a holy animal but the people who are lynching are going against Hindutva. Law should take its own course against them without any partiality,” he said.

He urged members of the Muslim community in India to get over any fear that Islam was in danger in India. “Don’t get trapped in the cycle of fear that Islam is in danger in India,” he said.

“It has been proven that we’re the descendants of the same ancestors from the last 40,000 years. People of India have the same DNA,” he said, adding that politics cannot unite people. “There are some things that politics cannot do, it cannot unite people. Politics cannot become a tool for uniting people, but can become a weapon to distort unity,” he said. “The basis of unity should be nationalism, glory of ancestors,” he added.

At the beginning of his speech, Mr. Bhagwat made it clear that this was not a novel outreach for him or any attempts at cultivating a vote bank. He mentioned that he had also earlier met with clerics from Dar-ul-uloom Deoband, one of the leading Sunni Islamic seminaries in the normal course of his meetings with people from different walks of life. He added that neither he nor the RSS was in politics to bother about image issues.

The event was organised by Muslim Rashtriya Manch, the Muslim wing of the RSS.

  1. Unfortunately facts contradict this statement of Hindutva Samrat. Whether those who champion that cause and claim to be ‘gau-rakshaks’ are behind mob-lynching acts. circumstances add to suspicion that ministers, MPs, MLAs protect them. The police books only the agreived always.The Centre, despite clear adivisory from the Apex Court way back in 2019 has not passed a law to stop it.In fact Muslims were targeted even by police while media trial too continued unabareadyThe states ruled by non-Hindutva parties like Rajasthan, Manipur and Bengal have enacted tougher laws to stop the heinous crime. Come some election or even the Muslim festival of eid al- al Azha the laws breaking youth members of Bajrang Dal, VHP etc, sponsored groups of Hindutva are on roads for every body to see in day light fearing none. True Hindustanis feel that such statements by Sh.Mohan Bhagqathji or any one else is aimed to confuse the electorate. . . The voters of the day are cleaver, intelligent enough not to be fooled further. They are ready to play the game of watch and wait.

    • The first so-called beef lynching happened in 2015 to a retired airman named Md Akhlaq in the village of dadri in UP. Then, Akhilesh Yadav was in power, yes the same SP leader whose entire politics is built on Muslim-Yadav unity. Law and order is a state issue and yet no one seems to ask Akhilesh Yadav to take responsibility and ensure honourable justice to the victim’s family. And everything is the RSS’s fault 🤦🏻‍♂️🤦🏻‍♂️🤦🏻‍♂️.

      • “so-called beef lynching”? So the state party in power is responsible for lynching attacks, and not the RSS who carried out the lynching itself? Why should Yadav take responsibility for terrorist attacks by the RSS? The RSS gutter rat Maquis de kalia is high on cow dung again thanks to the fake news from Hindu hate sites like Opindia.

      • Marquis de kalia,

        Still trolling with ignorant Hindu nonsense. Muslims don’t vote for BJP, we aren’t brain dead hive minded Hindu idiots who would vote for an iliterate terrorist like Modi twice. Hindus will vote for anything as long as they are given Hindutva delusional of grandeur.

  2. Politics and relegion seems to be like two sides of a coin. I am 66 yrs old NRK since 1976 in Dubai with all types of insurance and social work to unite people more effectively to achieve goals of our place

  3. As per my belief, MM should boycott any and all RSS
    or BJP related feel good news. Now, what he says may sound and be heard as positive but not a lot of people on this site would believe him even if he told this to their face. Hence, only hate news and negitivity about the RSS, the BJP and any of their members should be allowed on this site. I request the editors of this site to kindly ensure this to constantly demonise and spread hate against them, and to ensure that every Muslim sees them as the spawn of the saitan.

    • RSS already conveyed the hate messages against muslims and they already reached their objective.
      Now his statement is a sarcastic one.
      Fringe elements created by RSS ideology is not in the control of RSS.

  4. Lies and empty words from the leader of India largest terrorist organization, RSS. Hindutva is terrorism, and it’s followers are the ones responsible for 100% of lynchings in India. Malnourished monkey worshippers need to be lynched to see how they like it…meanwhile there should beef BBQ cookout outside every Hindu temple overseas

  5. Yeh Washington wale baba ka pressure hai. Time of American islamic terror falsehood gone with pro muslim due to china.

  6. RSS already conveyed the hate messages against muslims and they already reached their objective. Now his statement is a sarcastic one. Fringe elements created by RSS ideology is not in the control of RSS.
