Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) on Wednesday called for unity among the different communities of the nation.
“The diversity of communities of the nation calls upon its people to realise the unity. Efforts should be made to root out the conflicts existing among the communities,” RSS general secretary Mohanji Bhagwat said.
Stating that the word ‘Hindu’ is being ‘misunderstood’ and ‘misinterpreted’, Bhagwat said, “Hindu community is not the only community that has monopoly on the nation’s culture.”
He said the people of the nation should recognise the glorious culture and tradition of the country.
RSS, he said, has been backing every effort intended to protect one’s identity.
He called upon the people to respect every individual and every society.
