RSS Sarsanghachalak Shri Mohan Bhagwat said the terrorists can enter India easily because the country’s border security policy is not foolproof. “Our defence forces are capable of meeting any security challenge, but our border security policy is not foolproof and therefore terrorists can enter India easily,” he said addressing a gathering of uniformed swayamsevaks at Virani High School Ground in Rajkot on April 17.
Referring to the issue of shortage of weapons and ammunition, raised by the Army Chief General VK Singh recently, Shri Bhagwat said, “In spite of limited weapons, our army is strong enough and has won the difficult Kargil war. The success in the Kargil war has now become a ‘study-case’ for analysts in many countries.”
Quoting the Supreme Court’s directions to identify and deport illegal migrants, the RSS chief said, “Due to the week policy, our government has failed to find out those who are staying in the country illegally, while naxalites are taking advantage of the government’s talk of peace.” Countries such as Japan and Israel have progressed rapidly despite unfavourable conditions, he said, adding that Japan suffered two nuclear bomb attacks, while Israel have to fight a war soon after becoming independent. In comparison, India could not progress well enough, though circumstances were favourable, he said. “Nation’s resurgence can be achieved only by re-establishment of Hindutva,” Shri Bhagwat said.
