Religious fanaticism and acts of communal hysteria are spreading in the country under the guise of the Constitution and religious freedom, the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) said in its annual report while warning against “plans” of a particular community to enter the machinery of government to pursue its “malicious” agenda.


The challenge of increasing divisiveness in the country is also alarming, he said, adding that “ahead of the census year, there are cases of incitement of a group by propagating that they are not Hindus”.

“Efforts are underway to weaken the society by increasing various divisive tendencies in the Hindu society itself,” RSS said in the report presented in Ahmedabad at the three-day annual meeting of the supreme Sangh body “Pratinidhi Sabha”, which started on Friday. Calling religious fanaticism a serious challenge, he referred to the recent killing of Hindu organization workers in Karnataka during the Hijab controversy and in Kerala.

“The series of despicable acts revealing communal hysteria, protests, violation of social discipline, customs and conventions under the guise of the Constitution and religious freedom, inciting violence by inciting meager causes, promoting illegal activities, etc. are increasing,” the report said.


There appear to be plans made by a particular community to enter the machinery of government, he said.
