THE technique of building of the Ram Mandir following the Supreme Court order on the Ram Janmabhoomi dispute will stimulate the inner power of the nation, the Rashtriya Swayamsevek Sangh acknowledged in one of many two resolutions handed at its annual meeting of key representatives, the Akhil Bharatiya Pratinidhi Sabha.
The transfer to assemble the temple which started on August 5, 2020 with a non secular programme attended by Prime Minister Narendra Modi is a “manifestation of the inner strength of Bharat,” the decision stated.
“The ABPS is of the considered opinion that through the aforesaid program the intrinsic strength of Bharat has been invigorated and these programs became the unique symbol of spiritual awakening, national integration, social harmony, goodwill and dedication.”
“This campaign has proved once again that the entire country is always connected emotively with Shri Ram,” the decision stated. “Along with the construction of the grand mandir at the Shri Ram Janmabhoomi in Ayodhya, the social and national life inspired by the values of Shri Ram will be established through collective resolve and efforts,” the decision acknowledged.
In a second decision at the ABPS, the RSS applauded the collective response within the nation to the Covid-19 disaster which compelled the cancellation of the 2020 version of the ABPS and likewise resulted in shifting of the venue of the 2021 ABPS from Nagpur to Bengaluru.
“Various religious, social, voluntary organizations and the common citizens have rushed to the doorsteps of the needy and gave necessary support to them. The ABPS wishes to express high appreciation to all such organizations and individuals for their selfless and benevolent acts during this period,” stated a “Bharat stands as ‘One’ against Covid-19 Pandemic” decision.
In a key change within the organizational construction at the best stage, the ABPS elected veteran RSS chief from Karnataka Dattatreya Hosabale as the brand new Sarkaryavaha or normal secretary instead of Suresh ‘Bhaiyyaji’ Joshi.
The outgoing Joshi stated that he was stepping apart “to allow someone younger to take up the responsibility and guide the organisation”.
On a query on the RSS place on reservations, Hosabale stated that the RSS “is of the opinion that reservations have to exist as long as it is required in the society”. “Our Constitution too says that reservations are required as long as differences exist in the society and RSS conforms to the same,” he stated.
Hosabale stated the RSS would help the introduction of legal guidelines to curb “love jihad” as has been accomplished in some BJP dominated states. “The use of fraudulent methods to lure girls for marriage and conversion is condemnable and it has to be opposed. Suitable laws and regulations have to be brought and RSS will support such laws,’” he stated.
Earlier on the opening day of the Covid-curtailed ABPS, RSS Sah Sarkaryavah Manmohan Vaidya stated the Vishwa Hindu Parishad shouldn’t be marking houses of individuals not donating funds for the Ram Mandir building. He indicated that allegations made by some political leaders in Karnataka had been baseless and unfounded.
In a touch upon the continued farmers’ agitation, the RSS, in a booklet distributed at the ABPS, stated that “anti-national forces were trying to create an environment of disturbance and instability in the country to achieve their political ends”.
“It is not in anyone’s interest for any kind of agitation to be prolonged for a long time. It is also a matter of concern that day to day life is affected due to agitations,” stated a word calling for a decision at the ABPS on the problem. “In a democracy all have the freedom of expressing their views but none can be given the right to create disturbance and instability in the country,” it stated. The RSS didn’t go a decision on the topic.
