There are no minorities in India where all people are “culturally, nationally and DNA-wise Hindus,” senior RSS leader Dattatreya Hosabale said on Friday.

“Whom do you call minorities? We don’t consider anybody to be a minority. There should be no minority concept in the country because there is no minority.”

“Mohan Bhagwatji (RSS chief) has said it 20 times that all those born in India are Hindus. Whether they accept it or not, they are culturally, nationally and DNA-wise the same,” Hosabale told reporters as the three-day conclave of Akhil Bhartiya Pratinidhi Sabha, the top decision-making body of RSS, was underway.

He was responding to a question on whether RSS would open its door for the religious minorities and women.

“In Sangh Shakhas, the so called minorities that you say are already there…they are volunteers,” Hosabale, RSS joint general secretary, said.

Women, he said, were there in Rashtra Sevika Samitis and actively involved in the activities of RSS.

“They (women) are indeed not there in the Shakhas, but are everywhere else. They are involved in the Seva activities and are active, even full time volunteers. Several of them are even in the Pratinidhi Sabha,” he said.

    There are no minorities in India where all people are “culturally, nationally and DNA-wise Hindus,” senior RSS leader Dattatreya Hosabale said. Can it be said that all Hindus (Shudras, Out-castes, Tribes and minorities of India) are found to be "DNA-wise " Aryan and brahmin? At least we have the DNAs. All we need to do is to study and SAY!

      Prophet muhammad is not only prophecized in hindu scripture bhavishya purana but he is also called the incarnation of a demon named tripasura....Great muslims scholars changed the verse and removed tripasura, now see how great islam is, muhammad is predicted in hindu scripture....................it means 100 people convert to islam soon.

        Remarkable telling of truth, many people wont believe this because of narrow minded parents upbringing, but reality is south asians were forced raped and sold as slaves by muslims until they converted to islam.

            How old is Hindu religion? How old is Hindu world? Jaini says there religion is oldest one. Is not irony of religion? Some one may prove it.
