The leader of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), Mohan Bhagwat, stated on Sunday that the entire world looks to India for handling diversity. Bhagwat also stated that a “Akhand Bharat” will occur when people stop being afraid while speaking at a gathering on “Bharat@2047: My Vision My Action” in Nagpur, Maharashtra.
According to Bhagwat, there have been several historical occurrences that were never explained to us or properly taught. “For instance, the place where Sanskrit grammar was born is not in India. Did we ever ask a question why?” he said.
“It is chiefly because we first forgot our own wisdom and knowledge and later the land was conquered by foreign invaders who mainly came from north west region,” he said.
“We unnecessarily gave importance to caste and other similar structures,” Bhagwat said. The systems which were formed for work were used to create differences between people and communities, he said.
We do have minor distinctions in language, attire, and culture, but the RSS chief emphasised that we need to have a mind that can look at the broad picture and not get distracted by these details.
“The world points at India when it comes to managing diversity efficiently. The world is full of contradictions but managing dualities will only come from India, he said.
