By Jaykishan Sharma: Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) leader Dattatreya Hosabale said that all the people living in India are Hindus because their forefathers were Hindus. “Their methods of worship may be different, but they all have the same DNA.”
Hosabale was in Jaipur on Wednesday and was speaking at the Deendayal Memorial Lecture.
“Those whose ancestors were Hindu are Hindus, those who consider themselves Hindu are Hindus and even those who we call Hindus are Hindus…We can’t shut doors for those who consumed beef out of compulsion,” RSS leader Dattatreya Hosabale.
He said all the people living in India are Hindus because their forefathers were Hindus. “Their methods of worship may be different, but they all have the same DNA,” Hosabale said.
The RSS leader added, “More than 600 tribes in India used to say that we are different. We are not Hindus. Anti-India forces have done the task of provoking them. On this, Golwalkar ji said that he is a Hindu. The doors are not closed for them as we work on the concept of Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam.”
Furthermore, the RSS leader also said that India can lead the world by becoming a ‘Vishwa Guru’ only with collective efforts of all.
He said the Sangh considers all religions and sects of India as one. “People can do organisation’s work while retaining their sect. The Sangh is not rigid. It is flexible,” he added.
