The RSS on Tuesday celebrated the Vijay Dashmi and its foundation day in Reshimbag in Nagpur. RSS Chief Mohan Bhagwat in his annual address, paid tribute to RSS leader Deen Dayal Upadhyay and spoke about the teachings of Swami Vivekanand. Bhagwat also highlighted the ongoing tensions between India and Pakistan.

“India is progressing but there are some forces in the world that fear India’s influence,” said Bhagwat. “Miscreant elements in Kashmir are encouraged by those from across the border, the whole world knows that,” he added.

Bhagwat said that the entire region of Jammu and Kashmir has always been an integral part of India.

He also congratulated the armed forces on the recent surgical strikes among other responses to cross border terrorism.

“A fitting reply has been given to these influences from across the border. Under the watchful eye of this government, our army has shown great courage,” Bhagwat spoke congratulating the army.

Mohan Bhagwat also spoke about recent events of cow vigilantism and even called out to “some shameful events”.

“Due to discrimination based on caste, creed, language a few incidents have takem place in our society which are shameful,” said the RSS chief. “We have not been able to eradicate biases. For that, education should empower, create values and should be made accessible to all,” he added.

Meanwhile, Bhagwat also emphasised on the importance of cow protection calling it an important part of directive principles of state policy.

“Small farmers are dependent on cows. When organic farming is carried out using cow produce, it increase production,” Bhagwat said. ” It is important to separate the ‘Gausevaks’ from the trouble-making ‘Gaurakshaks’,” he added.

For the first time, the RSS chief was seen in trousers, a major uniform change that was brought about earlier this year. Bhagwat also took part in the route march by RSS cadres on the occasion of Vijay Dashmi.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi also greeted the RSS on their foundation day, wishing them best in their endeavours to serve the nation.

The event was also attended by Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis and Union Minister Nitin Gadkari. Prime Minister Narendra Modi will visit the historic Ram Leela in Aishbagh area of Lucknow on Dussehra on Tuesday.

          Pak does what it does well. The real Ravans are one who spew poison in the country. They brought down the image of Hindus before other communities. They made Hindus lumpen elements, rioters, hate-mongers, etc. Their leader is unfit to be the chowkidar of the nation, not a day pes without a Pak attack. Protests, unrest, violence, and border skirmishes are the order of day. Internal lawlessness and external attacks that occur daily are the hallmark and legacy of the new Indian government. Write down the name of all towns in JandK, Punjab... That is the legacy of Narendra Modi. China enters Uttarakhand! Soon it will be at the Himachal borders. PM messed up Kashmir where tourists had started to go again. Unrest in Gujarat, Maharashtra after Haryana. The weakest Indian PM is on the saddle. But he can sail through as his lumpen followers could easily be hoodwinked by light-n-sound show, oratory, mammoth rallies, superb dialogues, photo ops with world leaders. His followers are still in a daze. Modi plays to the gallery and his front-bench spectators cheer. Media too get carried away. Isn't it time to term him the weakest Indian PM? He conducted surgical strike to cover his failures. After all, a lower-order batsman is most likely to hit a six!

              Integrity and unity of the India will persist as long as we observe unity in diversity. Kashmiri illegal Muslim migrants using brute majority and violence means drive out non-violent indigenous pandit from kashmir. Kashmir pandit militant need to fight as non-state actors against the brute majority islamic terrorists.

                                    RSS is an essential necessity of India to stop spread of JI-HAD. ......... Remember, PA-KI MU-SLIMS were INDIANS for more than 5000 years but have become the most violent people in the world within 50 years of independence from 1947. ........... If those MU-SLIMS who sta back in India in 1947 have not become VIOLENT like PAK MU-SLIMS it is because of RSS and such other organisation.
