PRAYAGRAJ: RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat on Thursday said attempts are being made to hurt the religious sentiments of Hindus by breaking the society for political benefits. He was speaking at two-day Dharma Sansad congregation orgnised by Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP). Bhagwat also accused the Kerala government of oppressing devotees of Lord Ayyappa by exceeding the judicial mandate on the Sabarimala temple. This has led the Hindu society deeply disturbed and agitated, he said.

"We support this agitation of the Hindu society as the petitioners to the judiciary were not Lord Ayyappa's devotees," he said at the meeting, presided by Jagadguru Shankaracharya Swami Vasudevanand Sarswati.


"There are many moves afoot to divide the Hindu society. Accordingly, it's the need of the hour to reunite the segmented Hindus through a religious renaissance," the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh chief said.

He said there is no any discrimination against women and "that's what we have to tell the Hindu society" because there is a war of deception. "This is an attempt to break the society for political and personal benefit."

The RSS chief said the identity of such insiders and outsiders of the country is not hidden.

"Such people kept raising slogans in front of television that 'bharat tere tukde honge'... Such people are out to convince others that there is discrimination against women. This is a conspiracy. The society is unaware, it needs to be educated. This conspiracy has been going on for years. If the Hindus stand united, there is no power which can break their unity," he said.

The meet, which began Thursday, was also addressed by Yoga guru Ramdev, who called for a common civil code.

The VHP religious meet was attended by over 200 seers including Jagadguru Ramanandacharya Narendracharya Ji Maharaj, Jagadguru Ramanujacharya Hansdevacharya Ji Maharaj, Nirmal Peethadhishwar Shrimahanth Gyandev, Swami Jitendranath, Satpal Maharaj, Swami Viyoganand Ji Maharaj and Swami Nrityagopaldas Ji Maharaj.
