GORAKHPUR: RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat has said that some Muslims were trying to instil fear about the Citizenship (Amendment) Act in their community, adding that there was no need to be afraid of the law.
"Educated and intellectuals among the Muslims in India should come forward and dispel this fear. Both Hindus and Muslims are citizens of the country and there is no reason for them (Muslims) to be afraid of the law," he said during a closed-door meeting of Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh activists late Tuesday evening.

Bhagwat said that the RSS aim is to set up 'shakha' in every village of the country by 2025, its centenial years. He urged all RSS functionaries to work towards this goal.
