Asserting that Rohingyas cannot be given shelter in India at the cost of security its people Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh Sarkaryawah Suresh Joshi alias Bhaiyyaji Joshi said Rohingya Muslims illegally migrated into the country from Myanmar when Myanmar Government started taking strong action against their terror activities.

Infiltrating into the country, these people from Rohingya community have reached to Jammu and Kashmir and set up camps there and now demanding civic amenities there. Some people are demanding that the centre should look the issue from humanity angle but at the same can this be considered at the cost of safety of our own people, asked Bhaiyyaji Joshi.

RSS Sarkaryawah Suresh Joshi who is also fondly known as Bhaiyyaji Joshi, observed these views while addressing a mammoth gathering of RSS Swayamsewaks at Swami Vivekananda Sports Complex on the occasion of 92nd establishment day of Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangha and Vijay Dashami Utsav.

He stressed that under present circumstances the society has to be integrated and emphasized the need to work in coordinated efforts. He said that India’s reputation in the world is increasing and it will continue to grow. But it is necessary to initiate collective efforts with integration to solve questions on national interest. He enlightened the volunteers, dignitaries present on many subjects prevailing at present time in India.

Present on the occasion were Chief Guest Maha Mandaleshwar Hariharanand Saraswati, Shreya Muni Ramesh Kumarji, Chief Minister Dr Raman Singh, Dr Purnendu Saxena, RSS Sah Prant Sanghachalak, Mahanagar Sanghachalak Umesh Agrawal, All India Physical Education Head Sunil Kulkarni, Senior Pracharak duo Shantaram Saraf and Pandurang Moghe, former MP Gopal Vyas, Sah Chetra Pracharak Deepak Bispute, Chhattisgarh Prant Pracharak Premshankar Sidar, MP Ramesh Bais, PWD Minister Rajesh Munat, Agriculture Minister Brijmohan Agrawal, Women and Child Welfare Minister Ramsheela Sahu, amongst others.

Bhaiyyaji Joshi in his address said no country in the world today allows foreign citizens to stay after a certain period of time. On the contrary, in India, infiltrators think that India is a good country to live where nobody cares and also such elements get successful to garner support of certain vested interests. However, it is good that Supreme Court has directed the centre to identify such infiltrators and deport them outside.

He said some people are demanding to provide refugee status to Rohingyas and that they shouldn’t be considered as illegal migrants. He called upon the people and the government to identity such powers who are advocating for providing asylum to such elements. He said RSS welcomes the steps taken by Centre on the Rohingya issue.

The RSS Sarkaryawah while raking up the issue of cows, said cow protection is not a religious issue rather it should be seen from country’s economic development point of view. He said cows had been the base of agriculture and country’s economy. It is unfortunate that the issue is being associated with a religion just to trigger unnecessary controversy.

He called upon the brothers from Islam community that they should also understand that the issue of cow protection is not against any community. He however added that it is good that many Muslim organisations have come forward in this direction and are of the opinion of cow protection. He said incidents of crime in the name of cow protection should be dealt strictly and stern action should be taken against offenders while ensuring that innocents are not troubled during crackdowns on vigilantes.

Bhaiyyaji Joshi called upon people to boycott foreign products particularly Chinese and emphasized that the focus should be on ‘swadeshi’ commodities. He said there is need to stop inflow of products from outside but at the same time it is our duty that we should also stop buying foreign made products. He said there are small industries here engaged in manufacturing crackers and light-related products and we should encourage them by buying their products. He appealed to boycott Chinese made items during the coming Diwali festival.

Bhaiyyaji Joshi spoke at length about the current economic situation of the country. He said steps should be taken under the economic system which would encourage small industries, ensure relief to common people and at the same time the government exchequer should also received abundant revenue for economic development of the country. He also stressed on need to revise the agriculture policy advocated the practice of organic farming. He further said loan waiver is not a solution to the problem of farmers’ suicide rather the cultivators have to be made self reliant by ensuring them a better market for their produce.
