Every Indian is "descendant of Hindu ancestors": RSS Chief

The RSS Chief, himself accused of playing divisive politics, also called for unity

New Delhi: In a veiled reference to the long held belief of RSS that Hindus were forcibly converted to Islam and Christianity, its Chief Mohan Bhagwat on Sunday said all Indians are descendants of Hindu ancestors and no one in India is a foreigner.

Interestingly, RSS in itself is accused of being used as a tool by the British Colonial Forces to divide India on communal lines. Later in the past 70 years after the Independence, RSS, its cadres and its offshoots have also been accused of being at the forefront in most of the communal riots.

But Bhagwat blamed the British of stoking communal unrest. The RSS Chief, himself accused of playing divisive politics, also called for unity.

"The British had tried to divide the country by 'fanning separatist sentiment among the Muslim community'", he said without elaborating any further.

"I appeal to all to live with unity and contribute to the development of the country," Bahgwat said in his address at a book launch event at Constitution Club here.

Releasing the book titled "Historical Period-Counting: An Indian Discourse" by former RSS pracharak and Director of the Centre for Civilization Studies Ravi Shankar, Bhagwat said that powerful nations try to rule over a weak nation and everyone knows about it so there is no need to give an example of it.

The RSS chief appealed to all the Indians not to forget the glorious history and traditions of the country, lamenting that they had forgotten their rich and glorious traditions even before the invaders came to India.

Referring to the deep-rooted tradition of agriculture in India, Bhagwat cited an example of a family in Bihar which is highly-educated but yet completely engaged in agriculture. He also dwelt on organic farming in the country.
