Hinduism never encouraged violence in any way: RSS leader

Addressing a gathering at Hindu Samajotsava organised at Hinkal, he observed that such views are dangerous to country’s development. Earlier, attacks on Hinduism was direct but today it is being targeted through hidden agendas. Although the religion has experienced such drastic condition over the years, the followers of Hinduism still support social harmony, he said. Hinduism never encouraged violence any way, he added. Taking a dig at Prof Bhagvan, who claimed that a few lines in Bhagvad Gita preach violence and demanded they be removed, Dr Bhat said every line in the Gita is in tune with social harmony and it has been time-tested.​
