RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat has exhorted Hindus to unite as it would help cut through a lot of barriers.
Bhagwat, 67, was speaking at Rashtroday Sammelan in Meerut on Sunday. He said that there had been and there will be conspiracies against India's unity, but everyone will have to remain united.
"All Hindus are one, say with pride we're one. Hindus must unite, this is our duty," NDTV quoted Bhagwat as saying.
He stressed that if the country remains united, "we can cut through a lot of barriers" and “if we don't remain united, the whole world can take advantage of that".
According to the 2011 Census, India has 966.3 million Hindus, who make up 79.8 percent of its population.
The Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) held the massive show of strength in Meerut. The aim of the mega event, said an RSS functionary, was to ensure that there was an RSS worker in every western UP village, reported News18.com.
Bhagwat added: "We have all heard of unity in diversity. But there is also diversity in unity. Our unity has enough space for diversity. We respect and celebrate diversity."
