Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) chief Mohan Bhagwat has said that missionaries take advantage of situations where people feel society is not with them, in an apparent reference to religious conversion.
He was addressing a program in Madhya Pradesh’s Burhanpur district on Sunday, where he dedicated the samadhi of Govind Nath Maharaj to the people.
“We do not see our people. We don’t go to them and ask them. But a missionary from thousands of miles away comes and lives there, eats their food, speaks their language and then converts them.
He said that during 100 years people came to India to change everything.
Bhagwat said that they have been working here for centuries but failed to achieve anything as our roots remained strong due to the efforts of our forefathers.
“Efforts are being made to uproot them. Therefore, the society should understand that deceit. We have to strengthen the trust,” he said.
He said that fraudsters raise some questions about religion to shake faith, adding, “Our society has never encountered such people before, so people tend to be suspicious… We need to overcome this weakness.” Will happen.” “Even after this, our society does not waver but people change when they lose faith and feel that the society is not with them,” Bhagwat said.
The RSS chief said that 150 years after the local people converted to Christianity, an entire village in Madhya Pradesh became “Sanatani” as they were helped by Kalyan Ashram (RSS-backed voluntary organisation).
“We do not need to go abroad to spread our faith as ‘Sanatana Dharma’ does not believe in such practices. The roots need to be strengthened.
Bhagwat also addressed the congregation and offered obeisance at the Gurdwara in large gathering.
After visiting the Gurdwara, he said that Guru Granth Sahib is the source of inspiration for Hindus.
Bhagwat will inaugurate the office building of Dr. Hedgewar Memorial Committee in Saraswati Nagar on Monday and will address Sangh volunteers in Burhanpur.
