Silchar, January 04, 2013: RSS Sarasanghachalak Mohan Bhagwat slammed the poor attitude of governments on Border security issue, said ”We’ve been passing through a time when the country’s border is not secure, and people are suffering from insecurity and price rise. There’s seems no rescue from such situation.”
He said Hindus taking shelter in India from Bangladesh and Pakistan can’t be called infiltrators. “Hindus should always be treated on humanitarian ground. They can’t become ‘doubtful’ voters. Many Hindus from Pakistan who took shelter in India were granted citizenship. This should be done in case of Hindus who came to India from neighbouring Bangladesh as well,” the RSS leader said.
Mohan Bhagwat was Addressing a citizens’ meet here on Jan 1, Tuesday during his four-day visit to Silchar.
On Assam, Bhagwat said illegal infiltrators from Bangladesh are now in a position to dictate the politics of the state. He said such elements have been sneaking in through a porous international border, threatening the security and integrity of India. But, the RSS chief said, Assam would never become another Kashmir.
” Besides new legislations, Indian ethos and attitude towards women should be revisited in the context of ancient Indian values,” Bhagwat said.
The RSS, he said, was for stringent laws against rape and would welcome new legislation on sex crimes and favour capital punishment for those convicted of rape.
Saying that the RSS backed the chorus across the country demanding death penalty for those responsible for the December 16 gang rape of 23-year-old Nirbhaya, who died on December 29, Bhagwat said this needed to be backed by stringent laws. He also slammed the government for applying force against the protesters at Delhi’s Vijay Chowk. (Inputs from TOI)
