"Even Sai Baba never said he was a God. Sai Baba served the society. This should not be made an issue," RSS general secretary Suresh Bhaiyyaji Joshi said.

RSS spokesman Manmohan Vaidya said in Hindu society every individual has the right to decide whom to worship.

"Every individual in Hindu society has freedom to decide and worship God. There are many swayamsevaks in RSS who are Sai devotees," he said.

Puja is offered to even trees and mountains, he said.
