“Lynching” is Used to Defame the Nation, Says RSS Chief Mohan Bhagwat
RSS Chief Mohan Bhagwat asserts that Indians believe in brotherhood and not “lynching.”
The Chief of Rashtriya Swayam Sevak Sangh(RSS) Mohan Bhagwat has recently issued a statement wherein he said that the term “lynching” is a western construct and it was being used in the Indian context to defame the country on an international podium.
The RSS chief made the statement on Tuesday while addressing the Vijayadashami function in Nagpur, Maharashtra. He asserted that the word “lynching” comes from western religious contexts and should not be applied to the Indian context because it defames the country’s image on the international level.
He also congratulated PM Narendra Modi and Union Minister Amit Shah for introducing the abrogation of Article 370 in Jammu and Kashmir and asserted that some vested interests were not willing to see the country go on the path of development.

He commented on the word “lynching” by saying that the word originated in a different religious text and should not be applied to the Indian context in order to defame it. He pointed out that Indians believed in brotherhood and harmony and that lynching was something alien to the Indian context. He expressed pleasure over the security and the armed forces who he said were making our borders safer but expressed displeasure at those who due to their ‘vested’ interests didn’t want to see a strong and secular India. He claimed that the government has taken all the steps to revive the economy and that there was nothing to feel afraid about.
