RSS CHIEF K S Sudarshan today said here that Muslims and Christians cannot be considered minorities because their roots were India. A person born in India cannot be considered minority, he reasoned. Sudarshan, on a three-day visit here, was addressing an RSS divisional meeting programme.
“A person can be considered minority only if he had come from abroad. Muslims and Christians in the country are from here. They had only changed their modes of worship some generations earlier due to certain reasons,” said Sudarshan. He said a person must be loyal towards the country where he had taken birth irrespective of his religion.
Stating that only Hindu society can work for the welfare of world and human beings, Sudarshan said Hindus must organise themselves for this purpose.
Stating that the RSS aimed at taking the country to the pinnacle of glory, he pointed out that Hindus spoke about equanimity and brotherhood in the world but fundamentalists considered Hindus an obstruction and worked to divide them.
Taking a dig at the divorce system among Muslims whereby husband divorced wife by mere saying ‘talaq’ thrice, Sudarshan called for an end to the practice. He also emphasised on the need for the Uniform Civil Code and registration of marriages.
Sagar district minister in-charge Kailash Vijayvergia, Agriculture Minister Choudhary Chandrabhan Singh, PHE Minister Gangaram Patel, Sagar Member of Parliament Virendra Khatik and many other people’s representatives from all over the division participated.
