RSS Chief Mohan Bhagwat arrives in the UK to attend several functions
Bhagwat will attend the gathering of Hindus organised to mark the golden jubilee celebrations of the Hindu Swayamsevak Sangh (HSS), which draws inspiration from the RSS.
This is the first time that the RSS chief would be addressing such a big gathering of Hindus in the UK
Several organisations are planning to launch protest against Mr Bhagwat’s visit.
During a book launch in New Delhi, Mr Bhagwat said: “Any organisation begins with the motive of service but only those sustain which have compassion (karuna).”
“In lack of compassion, what can be there in the society… we can see this in newspapers and television channels,” he added.
He said even Dharma has four constituents and compassion is one of them.
He was launchin a book titled “Compassion in the 4 Dharmic Traditions” by author Bed Prakash Nanda.
BJP veteran L. K. Advani was also present among others at the book launch programme at Constitution Club.
Advani said that all the religions have same spirit but compassion is common among all.
“One may define religion in different ways but without compassion there can’t be any religion. If a person of one religion criticises people of other religions, this means he is not even following his own religion,” he said.
