The Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) – a Hindu Nationalistic Organization – has barred Pakistan from its list of invitees which includes representatives from 60 nations, citing that the country supports terrorism, kills Indian army at borders and shares strained relation with India. The invitation will be sent soon to diplomatic missions these countries for a three-day lecture series to be held in Delhi next week.

The lecture series will be addressed by RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat. All national political parties and regional parties with a strong base in the states which aggressively target the RSS on different issues will get the invitation. Apart from diplomatic missions and political parties, the RSS will probably also invite representatives of industry, media and other sectors.
“Invitations will be sent to embassies of most Asian countries excluding Pakistan. Pakistan will not be invited because that country supports terror, kills Indian soldiers at borders and its relations with India are strained,” commented an RSS functionary, who added that the Embassy of China will be invited because China has “cultural similarities with India”.
The lecture series will commence on September 17 in which Bhagwat will address and communicate with a select audience comprising prominent citizens on the “Future of Bharat: An RSS perspective”.
In a press conference on August 27, RSS All India Prachar Pramukh Arun Kumar had announced the lecture series saying, “Today, Bharat is moving ahead towards regaining her special and unique position in the world among the galaxy of nations. At the same time, RSS is realising that there is a growing eagerness amongst larger sections of the society including the intellectuals and the youth to know the RSS perspective on various issues of national importance.”
On the first day, Bhagwat will talk about the RSS, its organisation, ideology, vision, activities and programmes. The next day, Bhagwat will present his opinions on different contemporary matters of national importance including reservation, Hindutva and communalism.
This is the first such event organised by the RSS which involves direct interaction to clarify its view on various matters.
