Itanagar, Dec 12: Hitting hard at ideological opponents Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh Sarsanghachalak Mohan bhagwat said that Sangh does not work against anybody, but works for the uplift of the nation and welfare of the society. He urged people to ignore ill informed and misleading media reports about RSS.

Narrating the official stand of RSS on conversion bhagwat said that, Sangh is against the forceful conversion under the banner of religion. He further added that in country like India, uniformity is not required for unity. The diversity that India possesses is only atop but deep inside.
There is a common string of ethics and cultural identity which connects the different languages, food habits, and ways of worship he added. Recalling the inherited value system in India Bhagwat said that unity in diversity is the bench mark of our ancient culture.
Bhagwat further stated that RSS does not participate into political activities but feels the necessity of honest and patriotic people in the political parties. “RSS does not own any political party, but would like to send good people to all parties, if they accept our workers” said RSS chief.
