Sangh has never separated people on the religious lines : Manmohan Vaidhya

-LUCKNOW: Rashtriya Swayemsewak Sangh (RSS) doesn’t treat any community on the basis of religion-based population as minority, and according to it all those living in India are culturally Hindus.

”Sangh has never separated people on the religious lines as for them all are culturally Hindus”, said All India Publicity incharge of RSS Manmohan Vaidhya.
” Main office bearers of RSS 41 prants under 11 zones would be participating in the three day RSS national executive meet that would begin from Friday”, Vaidhya said. Besides, top officials – primarily presidents and organization secretaries of Sangh’s 33 offshoots, including organizations like BJP, VHP, Swadeshi Jagran Manch etc would also take part in the three day meet.
Coming back to the issue of membership, Vaidhya said that Muslims had been joining RSS for a very long time and they still continue to do so. Interestingly, to a question on their numbers in RSS, Vaidhya said that since Sangh doesn’t separate members on the basis of caste, creed and religion it is not possible to tell the exact number.
Elaborating on the agenda for the three day meet, Vaidhya said that all the relevant general topics would come up for discussion. The three day meet will also take up issues of increasing youth membership and discussion on big works being done in colleges and among the students and also cow conservation etc.
The three day deliberation at Saraswati Kunj would focus on the increasing interests in youths to join RSS, Vaidhya said and added that for the last three years RSS has seen people’s increasing interest in joining the Sangh. While last year, prathmik shiksha varq (initial training category) saw 80,000 members joining the camp, last year it is expected to be around 1.20 lakh this year, an increase of 50%, Vaidhya said and added similarly people have started joining through social media also.
The Join RSS online programme had on an average 1000 per month membership in 2012, 2500 per month in 2013 and this year it is expected to be on an average 7,500 members per month.
Along with RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat, who is camping in Lucknow since October 12, hordes of senior RSS functionary would be present in the three day meeting. In total, 390 participants are expected to attend the meeting beginning from Friday at 8am.
