Nagpur: The Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) Sarsanghchalak (chief) Mohan Bhagwat on October 15, 2021, termed population imbalance as a major problem for India.
He was addressing the 96th Foundation Day of the RSS on Vijay Dashmi in Nagpur.
The Sangh chief said that the population balance is deteriorating due to the infiltrators.
“The population has become imbalanced, especially in the border states. Therefore, it is necessary to consider the population policy.”
He said that due to the huge difference in population growth rate between 1951 and 2011, the proportion of the followers of the sects that originated in India has come down from 88 percent to 83.8 percent in the population of the country.
“At the same time, the proportion of Muslim population has increased from 9.8 to 14.23 percent. Therefore, infiltration should be completely stopped. The government should make a population policy and apply to all sections of the people. Infiltrators should be identified through the NRC.”
The RSS Chief also demanded that the government should handover the management of Hindu temples to Hindus.
“Today, the land of the Hindu temples is being grabbed. Therefore, it is necessary that the operation of Hindu temples should be in the hands of Hindu devotees and the property of the temples should be used only in the service of Hindu society,” said Bhagwat.
He added that an atmosphere of anarchy is being created in the country; some fundamentalist people are working to divide the country.
“That’s why Hindus need to be strong and organized as this is the solution to all problems. For this we have to be free from all kinds of fear. Weakness breeds cowardliness. The world listens to strength, modesty, knowledge and organized society. Truth and peace also work on the basis of power,” said Bhagwat.
Jammu and Kashmir
The RSS Chief said that common people have benefited after the abrogation of Article 370 in Jammu & Kashmir.
“Terrorists in Jammu & Kashmir have restarted the spate of the targeted killings of nationalist citizens – especially Hindus – to destroy their morale and reestablish the reign of terror in the valley. The citizens are braving and shall brave the situation with courage but efforts for curbing and finishing off the terrorist activities needs speeding up.”
The RSS Chief said that the clandestine, uncontrolled currency like Bitcoin has the potential to destabilise the economy of all countries and pose serious challenges.
He also expressed concerns about the unregulated content on OTT platforms.
“At present unregulated broadcasts of varied material on O.T.T. platforms are open for everyone’s indiscriminate consumption. In the backdrop of the pandemic, online education was to be introduced. School-going children are hooked on mobile phones as a rule. In absence of prudence and a regulatory framework, it will become difficult to predict in which way and to what extent this emerging phenomenon will sweep our society. However, to what extent anti-national forces wish to use these means is well-known. Therefore, the government must make efforts to regulate these affairs in no time.”
Bhagwat said that the habit of consuming drugs is increasing in the new generation.
“There is an addiction from high to low level of the society. Therefore, efforts should be made to free the country from drugs.”
The RSS Chief also spoke about India’s independence, economy, fight against Corona, use of Ayurveda, and success at the Olympics and Paralympics. (PW News)
