Speaking to India Today at Agra, RSS leader Suresh Joshi alias Bhaiyyaji Joshi, explained Sangh’s vision and mission. He said that Primary aim of the RSS is to safeguard and protect the Indian culture and ethos.
Bhaiyya Ji Joshi advised young Hindus to prevent the marriages of Hindu girls with men from other communities, especially Muslims and said that care must be taken to ensure that the Hindus to not become a minority in their own country within a few decades.
He further urged the Hindus to bear more children and grow their families as the growth rate of Hindu families had come down in the past decades.
He strongly advocated the upliftment of marginalized and backward classes of the society. He said that Sangh will have to play a pivotal role in bringing the backward communities into the mainstream Indian society.
He urged Sangh volunteers and office-bearers to ensure that if there are any house warming ceremonies at their new residences, the first meal should be offered to the labourers who helped build that house as social equality will only arrive in the country when the leaders go beyond getting their pictures clicked with statues of Dalit and backward leaders.
He added that the RSS is not anti-Muslim and the demand for the construction of the Ram Temple in Ayodhya is not anti-Muslim either. “The Muslims are also as much the sons and daughters of India as Hindus are, but the Sangh believes that the Hindus should be respected as they were in this country before the Islamic invasions.”
