RSS leader defends Mohan Bhagwat's statement "Pundits created caste"

Posting Bhagwat's statement, RSS All India Prachar Pramukh Sunil Ambekar tweeted that the truth is that I am in all beings, so whatever the name, but merit is one, respect is one, belonging to all.

New Delhi: Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) chief Mohan Bhagwat has given a big statement regarding the caste system prevalent in the society. The Sangh chief said that according to the scriptures no one is big or small, pundits lie.

He gave this statement in a program organized in Mumbai in Sant Ravidas Jayanti program. Bhagwat said that people have always taken advantage by dividing our society. The RSS leader has given clarification on the statement of the Sangh chief.

Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) Akhil Bharatiya Prachar Pramukh Sunil Ambekar posted Bhagwat's statement, tweeting, "The truth is that I am among all beings, so whatever the name, but the merit is one, the honor is one." Everyone has belongingness. No one is high or low. Pandits (scholars) who talk about high and low on the basis of scriptures are liars.

'Bhagwat's accurate statement'

Speaking to the media, the RSS leader said, "Mohan Bhagwat was at the Sant Ravidas Jayanti event. He mentioned 'Pandit', which means 'vidwan' (scholar)... caste-based division based on some pundit scriptures This is a lie. This is his (Bhagwat's) accurate statement."

During the program, the Sangh chief had said that truth is God, truth says that I am omnipresent, whatever may be the form, the ability is one, there is no high or low, what some pundits tell on the basis of scriptures is a lie. Stuck in the notion of superiority of caste, we got misled, the illusion has to be removed.
