Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh (RSS) chief Mohan Bhagwat said on Sunday that India is facing internal threats from various quarters and the outside world is trying to take advantage of the situation.

"India is facing a big problem of Maoists and Naxalites. Unfortunately other countries have established strong links with them and now they are posing a big threat for the country's security," said Bhagwat, while addressing RSS workers' convention here.

"India is also facing threat from its neighbouring countries. Everyone knows the intentions of Pakistan, China wants to snatch one whole state just through negotiations and so far Bangladesh has not declared the various terrorist based in their country."

The RSS chief also attacked the developed countries, holding them responsible for current disorder in the world.

"Countries, which teach us lessons of peace and harmony, themselves indulge in bombing and attacking other countries. Just to sell their weapons, they drag other poor countries into war," he said.

He said that differences based on caste, creed and languages have become very deep in the country and some political leaders are using them as a tool to fulfill their political aspirations.

"Socialists and capitalists have not been able to deliver on their promises and even the growth of science and technology is failure in bringing peace of mind to humanity. Its time to take along all sections of society if we want to live a safe and secure life," Bhagwat said.
