RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat on Friday said only India could rescue the world from the clutches of capitalism. “The whole world is in the clutches of capitalism. Only India can rescue the world from this calamity,” he said. “As long as even an iota of religion (dharma) is surviving in India, no power on the earth can harm India. But unfortunately, if the religion vanishes from India completely, then no power would be able to save India,” he said.

Bhagwat was speaking at the valedictory function of a residential course for men and women volunteers of Hindu Swaysmsevak Sangh (HSS) at Nagpur from various countries.

Quoting RSS founder Dr Keshav Baliram Hedgewar that the British or the Mughals could not be blamed for the country’s unfortunate situation.

“The only problem of the Hindu community is Hindus themselves and since Hindus are our own, we will not let them live in unfortunate situation,” Bhagwat quoted Hedgewar as saying.

He said, “We need to build a Hindu community not because it is in problem, but because it is our own, and also for the conservation of the holy Hindu religion, culture and Hindu rashtra.”

Renowned economist and member of Niti Aayog Bibek Debroy, who was present on the occasion, said that in the ancient times, the king had only limited responsibility of defence, internal security and ensuring the rule of the law, while everything else was done by the community.

“Unfortunately, because of the British legacy and what happened after 1947 as a citizen, we have become pampered and continuously look towards the government to do this and that. The government and the different levels of the government cannot solve the problem of India. The country’s problems can be solved by its community,” he said.

He also appreciated the initiative of promotion of Indian heritage and culture by HSS.

Total 65 participants from various countries took part in different activities like yoga, traditional Indian games and discourses on Hindu culture and heritage during the HSS residential course.

      Indian Express don't even have commonsense. Dharma means Truth not religion and here Mohan Bhagwat is referring to truth not religion. Please correct yourself if have some humanity left and stop defaming RSS.

        I am a HINDU FIRST then a CAPITALIST. I do have investments in Shares of Companies. I do admit - Brahmins (Intellectuals , Professors, Law interpreters) are above the Kshatriyas (Military, Police and Magistrates), Vaishyas (Merchants, businessmen, traders), Shudras(Workers in fields, factories, and everywhere else) - these four castes or class exist all over the world in every nation and people decide on their own which caste they want to belong. Mohan Bhagavat is correct - India only can show the way out of RUTHLESS BANIYA CAPITALISTS dominating Brahmins and Kshatriyas.

          THE BIGGEST JOKE OF THE YEAR! Economy Capitalism Bhagwat is talking about rescuing the world from Capitalism India never had a good ruler since independence except for a very brief period Lal Bahadur Shastri and Morarji Desai. All of them including Modi has proved to be the facilitators of crony capitalism. Modi has gone one step further by becoming the first the last PM of India that put his hand in the mouth of poor to take out what they were eating and took away their professions and openly allowing mob lynching of people. Out of the total budget 74 to run the system/government and 38 in debt servicing after adding new borrowing. In real terms the cost to run the system is 115 and 60 in debt servicing. If Modi had even 1 iota of Nationalism/Patriotism towards India and love for the less fortunate Indians he would have cut down the cost of governance of India. By the way can any Bhakt of Bhagwat or Modi on the issue of good governance raised by Modi tell me how many

              What is saffron intellect? Going against Saffron means going against Hindus. Don't try to separate RSS and Hindus. RSS is an Hindu organisation. You people try to show that saffron is different than Hinduism, which is false. It is a sacred colour of great Rishis, who were playing with Mathematics, astrology, music, dance, etc, when you peoples were trying to survive by eating dessert. Our roots will always remain where they are whoever will come in between will be crushed because we're with Dhamra and always opposed them whoever went against it. Hindus are now releasing the threat and reacting the hard way that's why you guys are pleading, you wanted Hindus to remain tolerant so that you keep on killing them and later hide behind secularism.

                Only India can save the world from capitalism, says the man whose organisation lives on kickbacks from capitalists. India's future is assured as long as bogus slogans stand in for thought and compassion.

                  Who is a Hindu and what is Hindu Dharma needs to be defined? The Muslim/British invaders used this word for people living on banks of Indus river there is no mention of this word in ancient Hindu's scriptures. The social hierarchy of four Varna's Brahmans Kshetriyas Vaisyas and Sudras by birth widely practiced by the first three Varna's and never accepted by Sudra's SC/ST/OBC is now uncons utional and illegal. There was no pan India Hindu religion nor there is an acceptable Scripture for all Hindus. Let RSS work for sorting out these issues to ensure equal status and rights to all Hindus as per the cons ution.

                    It is fairly simple - all followers of all of Dharma are Hindu. It does not need a definition that comes from invading Muslim Arabs or Christian British colonialists. We are not monochrome monotheists that need that one scripture and that one god to proclaim our Hindu-ness. In the 21st century that is rank idiocy. You are right however in one respect - the RSS needs to look inwards to cement Hindu society. More than reclaiming temples, more than gau raksha - the thing they should be driving is removing the caste sytem. It is fighting towards that - at least seen in the social engineering that Modi and Amit Shah are forging in different electoral battles. But way more needs to be done. The RSS needs to proclaim a bloodless revolution towards that.
