“India is our homeland, and we love it with all of our hearts. Its greatest strength is its unity in diversity, and numerous civilizations and religious groups have lived here for millennia. Even the tyrannical British government was unable to abolish this distinction.
Without taking the name of RSS, he said these days certain forces want to erase the diversity of this country. But no matter how powerful they are, they cannot defeat our centuries-old unity. The purpose of holding sansads is to thwart the design of communal forces.
In his message, Jagadguru Vijayendra Saraswati through his representative said that people of all religions in India are like the five fingers of a hand and will remain so in the future too. He said that unity, sankalpand prayers are three such mantras that are for the sons of this great land. And undoubtedly Muslims are also the sons of India.
