Those who do not go to RSS shakha are not Hindus: Hyderabad BJP MLA

By Deepika

A BJP MLA from Telangana has sparked a row by saying "that each and every Hindu should attend RSS shakhas and those who refuse to do so, are not Hindus."

Hyderabad BJP MLA T Raja Singh

A video of the MLA T Raja Singh making the controversial remark at a 'Hindu Dharmasabha' event held in Neemuch district of Madhya Pradesh on Sunday has gone viral.

Raja said those who attended the shakha were nationalists and thought about the welfare of the country. "I do believe that those who do take part in a shakha can work for the betterment of the country and religion," he said.

Singh has asked every Hindu to attend RSS shakhas wherever possible.

He further urged the Modi government to take stringent action against those who kill cows and chant anti-India slogans. He also talked at length about religious conversions.

Shakshi Maharaj said there are various political organisations, and they may differ in their ideologies, but they are all made up of Hindus. "You might be angry with your MLA or MP, but do not punish Bharat Mata and Prime Minister Modi for it," he said.

Raja Singh Lodh, is known for his controversial statements and recently, Hyderabad police registered a case against him, after he allegedly made an inflammatory speech.

He had made "derogatory and hate" speeches against Muslims and promoted enmity between Hindus and Muslims.
