News Round-Up : Reject all Sorts of Discriminatory Tendencies
Alappuzha: RSS Sarkaryavah Shri Bhaiyaji Joshi called for rejecting all sorts of discriminatory tendencies and for taking united efforts for betterment of the society. He was addressing a public meeting after inaugurating RSS Shabarigiri Vibhag Karyalaya at Chengannur in Alappuzha District.
Shri Joshi added the Hindu society suffers from caste based divisions. But, birth in a particular caste or society is not one’s choice; it happens due to God’s will. Therefore, the society should graduate into performing with integral mindset like a human body lives with all organs performing it’s set duties ignoring all sorts of differences in their size or significance. We always come across suggestions to make Bharat equal to foreign countries. But, the Sangh believes that Bharat must remain as Bharat; our goal is to empower the samaj, crush the fissiparous and terrorist forces and strengthen Bharat as a powerful and prosperous nation.
