Threat to borders and internal security besides attacks on Indians indicated India's "weakness" to firmly tackle these problems, RSS chief Mohanrao Bhagwat said on Saturday.
"For the last 60 years a small country like Pakistan has adopted a hostile attitude towards India's desire for friendship. Despite 26/11, we are talking of friendship with that country, the RSS chief told a rally of RSS volunteers in Kolkata.
"The Pakistani Prime Minister has stated that he cannot guarantee that there will be no repeat of 26/11 in India. Pakistan should be taught a lesson," he said.
Stating that Pakistan had its eye on Kashmir, Bhagwat said that three lakh Kashmiris who were thrown out should be re-settled in the valley.
In an apparent reference to reported Chinese incursions in Ladakh, he said, "what is happening on our northern border has not been stated clearly."
Stating that the country's security should be kept above politics, Bhagwat said infiltration from Bangladesh was continuing unabated posing a threat to India's internal security, but the problem was not being tackled due to "vote bank politics".
On racial attacks on Indians in Australia, he said "nobody will dare to touch an Israeli".
