India belongs to everyone, says Mohan Bhagwat

Hindustan is a country of Hindus, but it does not mean that it does not belong to others, RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat has said.

Addressing a gathering of college-going RSS volunteers here on Friday, he said the government alone cannot bring development, and that it needed changes in the society.

"Whose country is Germany?...It is a country of Germans, Britain is a country of Britishers, America is a country of Americans, and in the same way Hindustan is a country of Hindus. It does not mean that Hindustan is not the country of other people," Bhagwat said.

"The term 'Hindu' covers all those who are the sons of 'Bharat Mata' (Mother India), descendants of Indian ancestors and who live in accordance with the Indian culture," the RSS chief said.

No one leader or party can make the country great but it needs a change and we will have to prepare the society for it, he said.
