Bhagwat had said that every person born in India is a Hindu.
Bhopal: RSS chief mohan bhagwat has said that no one, not even he himself, has the right to gauge the patriotism of others. Bhagwat was speaking at a book release function in Madhya Pradesh.
In his address at Bharat Bhawan in Bhopal, Bhagwat said that even powers that be can neither make an assessment of the patriotic feeling in others, nor can one comment on that.
The statement comes just days after another controversial remark by the RSS chief at Viraat Hindu Sammelan at Baitul in MP earlier this week. At this event, Bhagwat had said that every person born in India is a Hindu.
“Everyone born in the country is a Hindu -- of these some are idol-worshipers and some are not. Even Muslims are Hindus by nationality, they are Muslims by faith only,” he said at an event here.
