Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) general secretary Suresh Bhaiyyaji Joshi on Sunday said that opposing the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) was not synonymous to opposing Hindus. 

While addressing the gathering in Goa, RSS’ Bhaiyyaji Joshi stated that the political fight shouldn’t be linked to Hindus. 

“Opposing the BJP doesn’t mean opposition to Hindus. The BJP doesn’t mean Hindu community. The political fight will continue but it shouldn’t be linked with Hindus,” Joshi was quoted in the media reports. 

RSS general secretary Bhaiyyaji Joshi was speaking while giving a lecture on ‘Vishwaguru Bharat’ at Dona Paula in Goa on Sunday. Joshi was responding to a question while addressing the audience. 

“A Hindu fights against a fellow Hindu because they forget the religion. Even Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj faced opposition from his own family. Where there is confusion and self-centred behaviour, there is opposition,” RSS general secretary Bhaiyyaji Joshi said.

Joshi’s remarks come at a time when opposing the BJP is projected as opposing the Hindus. The statement made by the senior RSS member also raises eyebrows. 

The nation is witnessing huge protests against Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) and the proposed National Register of Citizens (NRC). In almost every city across the country, people have been demanding the rollback of the newly amended citizenship law. 

The opposition has said that the new citizenship legislation is discriminatory against Muslims and have stated that the proposed NRC will mostly affect the poor and marginalised of the country.

Amid this, Joshi stated that the RSS has never stopped non-Hindus from joining the organisation and informed that many Muslims have joined the Sangh in states like Uttar Pradesh. 

“Whoever wants to join Sangh, they are welcome. If any non-Hindu joins Sangh, they will get a position similar to a Hindu but not a separate position,” Joshi said.
