Mohan Bhagwat, Sarsanghchalak of Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh, said on Friday that if anyone is a Hindu, he will be a patriot and that is his main character and disposition. The head of the Sangh quoted Mahatma Gandhi in his remarks as saying that his patriotism came from his religion. Mohan Bhagwat said this while inaugurating ‘Swaraj’. Bhagwat said that by publishing the book and my name, it can be speculated that it is an attempt to define Gandhiji from himself.
“No one can define great men as their own,” he said. He said the book is based on extensive research and that anyone with a different opinion can write a research. The head of the association said, “Gandhiji said that my patriotism originated from my religion. I have to understand my religion and be a good patriot and tell people to do the same. Gandhiji said that to understand Swaraj, one has to understand one’s own religion.” “If he is a Hindu, he has to be a patriot because he is on the ground. It may be soybean that needs to be awakened, but no Hindu can be anti-India. As long as I fear that my existence is a threat to my existence, You will be threatened by my existence by my existence, then there may be agreement but not intimacy.
Bhagwat said that separation does not mean that we cannot live as sons of one society, one world. He said that unity in diversity, unity in diversity is the main idea of India. In the book, however, the author quotes Gandhiji’s conversation with Leo Tolstoy, in which he mentions his growing love for India and related issues. Bajaj said the book deals with Gandhi’s travels and life from Porbandar to England and then to South Africa.
