Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) chief Mohan Bhagwat today said that ‘ Muslims residing in the country are Hindus by nationality.’
“We all are Hindus. Muslims are Muslims by their faith but they are Hindus by nationality. ‘Aarti’ of Bharat Mata by members of the Rashtriya Muslim Manch is an example in this regard. We all have to unite leaving our differences behind,” said Mr Bhagwat while addressing Hindu Sammelan here.
He asserted that the cry of ‘Bharat Mata ki Jai (Long live Mother India)’ comes from the heart and was not limited to language. Thus, people from across the country are comfortable with the chanting of the slogan ‘Bharat Mata ki Jai’.
Calling upon members of Hindu society to refrain from fighting with each other over petty issues, Mr Bhagwat urged them accept diversity as it enriched beauty. He also threw light on the depth of Hindi language.
Satpal Maharaj, spiritual guru and former Congress MP who switched his loyalty to the Bharatiya Janata Party, also addressed the gathering.
