Shimla, Nov 9: RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat said on Nov 8 that the Sangh should not be taken as a political outfit just because of the presence of the Sangh's member in political organisations and for having its own flag.
"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 in his address to the Sangh cadres.
Speaking at RSS Sarsanchalak in which people from other religion where invited, Bhagwat said that Hinduism alone has the ability to hold society together.
Bhagwat refused to comment on the change of leadership in BJP and advised the Union government to gear up to face challenges posed by hostile neighbours like China and Pakistan.
