NEW DELHI: Calling the victory of the BJP- led alliance in the 2014 Lok Sabha elections as initiation of a "revolution" in the country, VHP patron Ashok Singhal today said by 2020, India would be a Hindu nation.

"I was at the Sai Baba Ashram where Sai Baba told me by 2020 the entire country will be Hindu and 2030 the entire world will be Hindu. I feel that revolution has started," he said at a function here attended by External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj and other RSS functionaries.

Hailing the coming to power of the Narendra Modi government, he said the victory has put an end to the 800 years of "slavery".

"This is not a modest revolution. It will not remain confined to India but present a new ideology before the world," he said.

He was speaking at a programme for release of a book on the life and work of former RSS chief K S Sudarshan, who died last year with speakers remembering him as someone who encouraged promotion of 'swadeshi' model for the country's development.

Swaraj said Sudarshan had created a positive vibe around him due to which any worker could talk to him freely without fear and his "goodness" made him a "saint" amongst his peers.

"Sudarshanji created such an atmosphere around him that I could speak to him openly. I feel the goodness of a person is measured by the positive vibe that he creates around him. If there is a sense of fear, no worker can talk freely. If there is no sense of fear, a worker can speak freely. He created such an atmosphere," she said.
