Bhubaneshwar: Asserting that the Muslims in India are the “happiest”, Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) supremo Mohan Bhagwat said that people of other faiths have sought refuge in India due to the “Hindu culture”.

Addressing a gathering, Bhagwat said Hindu was not a religion, language or name of country. “It’s the culture of all those who live in India,” he said, adding that when any nation has deviated from the right path, “it has come to us in search of truth”.

Emphasising on India’s diversity, RSS chief said, “the Parsis community is well protected in India and the happiest Muslim in the world is also in India and why this is possible because we are Hindus.” (Maare-maare Yahudi (Jews) firte they akela Bharat hai jahan unko ashray mila. Parsion (Parsis) ki puja aur mool dharma sukrakshit kewal Bharat mein hai. Vishwa mein sarvadhik sukhi Musalman, Bharat mein milega. Ye kyun hai? Kyunki hum Hindu hain…”

Making a similar statement earlier this week, In his Vijayadashmi address, the RSS chief had said the Sangh was firm on its vision that ‘Bharat is a Hindu Rashtra’. “The vision and proclamation of the Sangh regarding the identity of the nation, social identity of all of us, and the identity of the country’s nature, are clear, well-thought-of and firm that Bharat is Hindustan, Hindu Rashtra,” he said.
