Nagpur: RSS Chief Mohan Bhagwat today for the first time since lockdown addressed the people and called upon them to be cautious with their fellow countrymen when some of them were found flouting the public health restrictions in place to check the spread of coronavirus.
He indirectly pointed out to the Tablighi Jamaat congregation saying that, “Don’t get angry… don’t get fired up.. There are members of the ‘bharat tere tukde honge’ gang who are trying to incite the public… Some politicians are also involved… We can’t harbour ill-will against the entire community for mistakes of few individuals.”
The Union Home Ministry had said that more than a third of coronavirus infections in India are linked to the Tablighi Jamaat event.
“All 130 crore Indians are our family. We are one,” said Bhagwat.
Talking about the heinous lynching of two Sadhus in Palghar, he condemned the crime that happened.
“The two sadhus were beaten to death. They were innocent. They were practising dharma and were propagating it. It was very unfortunate. We are in grief due to that,” Bhagwat said.
On the auspicious day of Akshaya Tritiya, Mohan Bhagwat was addressing the nation on the “current situation and our role”.
