Thiruvananthapuram, Feb 25: While the Foreign Secretaries of India and Pakistan are engaged in talk, RSS chief Mohan Bhagawat said that the talk will not yield positive result unless Pakistan change its mindset.
"Pakistan has a continuous antagonistic mindset towards India. Unless that attitude is changed, talks will never be fruitful."
"For the success of talks, the situation does not matter. The mindset matters more. India has always offered readiness for talks. But Pakistan has adopted an approach that it can not live with Bharat."
"Pakistan should change this mindset, then it will be beneficial to them also," RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat said, when asked about his opinion on the on going talk.
Expressing his concern over infiltration bid along the border, the RSS chief said that effective steps should be taken to thwart such attempts as it is matter of national security.
Bhagawat also commented on the beheading of two Sikhs by Taliban in Pakistan, saying that the government was not doing enough to ensure the security of Indians abroad.
"There is a general complaint abroad that our government is not doing enough to protect NRIs. The government should do more on that," he said.
On the Pune blast, Bhagawat refuted reports about the involvement of Hindu terror groups behind the blast.
" This bogey has been created ever since the Malegaon blasts," he said.
Commenting on the Ram Sene, the RSS chief said that he had no association with the Sene and did support their activities.
Asked about the BJP and the RSS association, Bhagawat said BJP was on its way to regenerate itself and would be successful in fulfilling its role as opposition in the present context by adopting organisational changes.
On the Telangana issue, Bhagawat said that RSS was not against the formation of separate states as it would led to easier administration and better development.
"So if the majority felt in favour of a separate states, there is nothing wrong in examining the issue and forming a state," he said
He reiterated the RSS stand on Ram temple, stating that it was a symbol of "national character" and it was wrong to construe it as a religious goal.
Speaking on the hostility between the RSS and the CPI (M) in Kerala's Kannur district, he said that he was willing to hold talks with the Marxist to restore peace in the area.
