World looks at India with hope that it can find answers to unsolved questions: Bhagwat


PTI, Jul 6, 2023, 8:14 AM IST

Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) chief Mohan Bhagwat on Wednesday said the world has so far failed to find answers to several questions and now thinks that India can provide their solutions.

Asserting that the work of national awakening was going on in the country, he said India needed ”intellectual Kshatriya” (warriors).

He was speaking here at the release of eight volumes of the original Valmiki Ramayana, written by Saint Ramdas, and edited by Shri Samarth Vagdevata temple based in Dhule of north Maharashtra. ”In order to show direction to the society, it is necessary to establish the embodiment of the ideal king. Samarth Ramdas considered Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj as the ideal king after Lord Rama,” he said.

The time of Samarth Ramdas’s existence was marked by invasions, and Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj responded to these invasions, the RSS chief said. ”To fight is just one aspect of protecting religion. But protecting religion does not mean only fighting. Counteracting, enlightening, researching and practising are also ways to protect religion,” he said.

Although time has now changed, we are still facing similar issues, Bhagwat said.

”One thing is we are not slaves now. We are independent. But has our slave mentality gone? Aren’t their invasions today? Though there are no direct invasions, they are there – one is on the western border and the other is on the northern border. What is the meaning of a work infiltration,” he added. Several experiments took place in the last 2000 years, but the world is now tired of not getting answers over several issues. Hence, it now thinks that India can provide answers to these questions, he said.

”But is India ready to give the answers? Are we (Indians ) aware that we need to create a country that can give answers ( to these issues),” he said.

The work of national awakening is going on in India and the country needs intellectual Kshatriya, he said.
