Do I have to go there (to RSS shakha) to learn this?”

New Delhi [India]: Owaisi, while slamming the recent speech of Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) supremo Mohan Bhagwat, tweeted, “PM Modi failed in stopping Chinese soldiers from coming into Ladakh, Sikkim, Arunachal and Uttarakhand. For all that false nationalism, Mohan didn’t utter a word about how our brave hearts were treated by the Chinese. Why so afraid?” “Bhagwat mentioned Muslim patriots like Ashfaqullah Khan and Muslims who had fought in the armies of Hindu Kings against so-called Muslim invaders. Ashfaqullah and Ram Prasad Bismil were great friends. Who destroyed such friendships in the name of Fatherland and Holy land?,” he added.
Lauding the Muslim freedom fighters, the AIMIM chief tweeted, “The record of Muslim freedom fighters is such that even Mohan is compelled to praise them. The same cannot be said about RSS and its ideologues. They were always epitomes of anti-national activities and cowardice. Savarkar advocated the use of rape against Muslim women during the war.”
Alleging that RSS cannot coexist in a society that wants to progress economically, Owaisi said that “Society must choose between RSS’s cowardice and Ashfaqullah Khan’s bravery; RSS’s betrayal of India and Gandhi’s patriotism; RSS’s ideology of whining/resentment and Maulana Azad’s intellect and education.”

“Their predisposition – passionate fanaticism, tyranny and terrorism in the name of Islam – is sufficient to make everyone apprehensive of the Taliban. But now China, Pakistan and Turkey have coalesced in an unholy coalition with the Taliban. Since Abdali, our north-western borders are once again a matter of serious concern,” said RSS chief.
Bhagwat said that border security needs to be strengthened not just along the land border but also along the coastline where silent attacks take place.

There are elements in the world for whom Bharat’s progress and its rise to a respected position are detrimental to their vested interests.”


Bhagwat further said that if the religion that envisions a world based on the Sanatan value-system prevails in India then the foul play of those “selfish forces” will automatically be neutralised.

In his annual Vijaya Dashami address, the RSS chief said, “While reimagining the country’s development, one predicament comes to the fore which appears to concern many. The rapid growth of the country’s population may give rise to many problems in the near future.” “Therefore, this challenge must be duly considered. A resolution was passed on this issue during the Akhil Bharatiya Karyakari Mandal (All India Executive Committee) meeting of Sangh held at Ranchi in the year 2015.”
“In the present circumstances, news of persecution of native Hindus, growing criminalisation and mounting pressure on them to escape their areas where imbalanced population growth has surfaced. The violence that broke out following the elections of West Bengal and the pitiable condition of the Hindu people there can also be attributed to the appeasement of barbarous elements by the government and population imbalance. Therefore, a policy that is applicable to all groups in the same fashion is imperative. All of us need to inculcate the habit of considering the collective national interest above everything while coming out of attractive cobweb of milking the parochial group interests,” he added.
