Sangh Parivar's two-day meet to discuss strategy to safeguard and promote Hindu culture in India and abroad, concluded in Mehasana on Wednesday.

"Various topics were discussed concerning values, traditions and culture of our country," convenor of Hindu Dharma Acharya Sabha, Swami Dayanand Sarawasti, said.

Around 80 think tanks of Sangh Parivar, including some important BJP leaders like Venkaiha Naidu, Arun Jaitley, Narendra Modi, Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chauhan and Bihar Deputy Chief Minister Sushil Modi--were present at the 'Chintan Shivir'.

"We also discussed the issues of globalisation which is a big danger in terms that though it give a lot to us it takes away more from us," Saraswati said.

He, however, said that they did not discuss anything related to the current political scenario in the country. "Politics was kept out of the meeting," he said.

Saraswati said religion should not come in conflict with politics, neither should politics intervene in religion.

"This was an effort to bring all Hindu organisations under one umbrella and make them work together," he said.

Mohan Bhagwat, Ram Madhav, Balbir Punj and editor of English daily Pioneer Chandan Mitra were present at the meet.
