Subtly asserting the philosophical foundations of Hindutva, Mohan Bhagwat, Sarsanghachalak of Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) said that a vibrant “unified Hindu society is the necessity of the whole world” in the present context.
Inaugurating the Bhaskar Rao Smaraka Mandiram at Elamakkara here on Sunday, the supreme chief of the RSS warned the Sangh Parivar members that intellectual and cultural maintenance of the core Hindutva ideology is more challenging than maintenance of the physical infrastructure built by Sangh.
In a carefully worded speech, he reiterated the need for a sophisticated and strategic propagation of core Hindutva values that will result in establishing a cultural hegemony. “The physical maintenance of infrastructure is comparatively easy. But the real challenge is the maintenance of core Hindu cultural values,” he pointed out.
Hinting that philosophies emanating from the West have largely failed to offer solutions to the different problems faced by the contemporary world, Bhagwat said that the “whole world is looking to Bharath and Hinduism.” He pointed out that Bharath can offer solutions to a world that is suffering from “lack of spirituality, lack of moral values and lack of ethics.”
G Madhavan Nair, former chairman of ISRO, in his presidential address said that “the idea of Hindu unity is gaining momentum. “I am hearing a lot of complaints that Hindus are marginalised in the state. But the huge gathering of Hindus here as well as at the meeting organised by the VHP in Thiruvananthapuram shows that materialisation of it is not a dream,” he said.
