Hinduism a way of life, says Sudarshan

CALLING UPON the Hindus to sink differences, and unite on a single platform to counter the Muslim appeasement by political parties, Rashtriya Swyamsewak Sangh (RSS) chief, KC Sudarshan today expressed serious concern over the onslaught of the ‘western culture’, as it was polluting the Hindu society, its civilisation and traditions.

He urged the Hindus, particularly the youth, not to follow and adopt the western culture blindly, as it was bound to prove counter productive in our society and would do good to nobody. The increasing consumerism would lead the society nowhere, while the country would pay for it heavily in the near future, he observed. Favouring a common civil code, the RSS chief underlined the need for same laws for everyone, irrespective of their caste or community.

Speaking at an intellectual conference, organised as part of the Guru Golwalkar birth centenary celebrations at the Chedilal Dharmshala here on Sunday, Sudarshan said that the Hindus were strictly following the concept of family planning while the Muslims were solemnising more than one marriage and had refused to have a small family, resulting in acute population imbalance of Hindus and Muslims in the country.

He said that Hinduism was not just a religion, but a way of life and regretted the absence of a true Hindu leader after Independence. Commenting on India’s foreign policy, Sudarshan said the pro-American stand of the government wou;d lead it to nowhere.

He said that philosophy and principles of Guru Golwalkar were still relevant and various challenges faced by the country and the society could easily be managed with his thoughts and opinions.
