Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) general secretary Dattatreya Hosabale said those whose ancestors were Hindu are Hindus.
While speaking at the Birla Auditorium, Jaipur on the topic 'Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh: Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow' organised by the Ekatm Manavdarshan Anusandhan Evam Vikas Pratishthan on Wednesday, Hosabale said we can't shut doors for those who consumed beef out of compulsion.
RSS neither right wing nor left wing, we are nationalis
Hosabale said the organisation works in the interest of the nation without any political inclination.
"We are neither right wing nor left wing. We are nationalist. The Sangh is only going to work in the interest of the nation," Hosabale said.
He said all the people living in India are Hindus because their forefathers were Hindus and their methods of worship may be different, but they all have the same DNA.
He said India can lead the world by becoming a 'Vishwa Guru' only with collective efforts of all.
"The Sangh considers all religions and sects of India as one. People can do organisation's work while retaining their sect. The Sangh is not rigid. It is flexible," he added.
He also spoke on the Constitution and said even a good Constitution cannot do anything if those in charge of implementing are bad.
Hosabale said the RSS played a role in the establishment of democracy in the country which finds mention in the write-ups of foreign journalists.
Former chief minister of Rajasthan Vasundhara Raje, former BJP state president Mahesh Chandra Sharma, Leader of Opposition Gulabchand Kataria were also present in the programme.
