RSS chief Bhagwat says ‘wild dogs can destroy lone lion’

Lamenting that the Hindus have been suffering for thousands of years, RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat has asked them to come together and organise themselves, saying “if a lion is alone, wild dogs can invade and destroy him”.

Addressing a gathering of some 2,500 delegates attending the second World Hindu Congress here, Bhagwat, however, said the Hindus have no aspiration of dominance.

“One of the key values to bring the whole world into a team is to have controlled ego and learn to accept the consensus,” Bhagwat said.

“In initial days of our work, when our karkyakartas used to talk to Hindus about organising them, they used to say ‘sher kabhi jhund mein nahi chalta’ (a lion never walks in a group). But even that lion or a royal Bengal tiger who is the king of the jungle, if he is alone, wild dogs can invade and destroy him.”  He said in Hindu dharma, even a pest is not killed, but controlled.

“Hindus don’t live to oppose anybody. We even allow the pests to live. There are people who may oppose us. You have to tackle them without harming them,” Bhagwat said. PTI
