The RSS is neither a political outfit nor a para-military force, but is an organisation engaged in unifying society on the basis of Hindutva, its chief Mohan Bhagwat said on Sunday.

"Though, we have our flag and some people from the RSS have joined political organisations, the Sangh has nothing to do with politics," he said at a function in    Shimla.

"The RSS is neither a political outfit nor a para-military force. Its primary function is to unify society on the basis of Hindutva," Bhagwat told Sangh cadres.

The RSS Sarsanghchalak invited people from other religions to see functioning of the Sangh from close range to know the truth.

Terming Hinduism as the "most tolerant religion", Bhagwat said only it had the capability to hold society together.

He said the Union government should gear itself to meet any challenge posed to the country by its "hostile neighbours" like Pakistan and China.

On the leadership change in the BJP, Bhagwat said the Sangh had nothing to do with it. PTI
