Amid the row over alleged migration of Hindus from Kairana in Uttar Pradesh, RSS Chief Mohan Bhagwat on Sunday said the news of displacement in today’s time is “painful and disturbing”.
“The news of displacement form several parts of the country is painful and disturbing. It is our responsibility to remove pessimism from the hearts of such people and instill the feeling that this country is ours, this land is ours,” he said.
Bhagwat was addressing a congregation of Swayamsevaks at Adarsh Vidya Mandir, Lal Sagar, in Jodhpur today to celebrate ‘Hindu Samrajya Diwas’ to mark the day Maratha King Chhatrapati Shivaji was coronated.
The RSS chief said fear and pessimism among Hindus was at its peak during Shivaji’s time due to repeated invasions by outsiders.

“But Shivaji united the Hindus and instilled a feeling of nationalism and sacrifice in them,” he said.
Maintaining that the Maratha king needed to be emulated, Bhagwat said the RSS has been striving to strengthen and unite the community like Shivaji did during his time.
He said the diversity in the world is inevitable and has to be accepted, but the objective of the system is to work tirelessly and consistently for the uplift of all the sections without bias.
