Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) chief Mohan Bhagwat has given a big statement on the issue of nationalism. Mohan Bhagwat says that a word like nationalism shows the glimpse of ‘Nazism’ or a ‘Fascist’ ideology these days and it is better to use some alternative terms.. RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat took part in a program in Ranchi, the capital of Jharkhand. During this, Bhagwat said that the expansion of RSS is for the country because our goal is to make India best and make it a world class economy.
Sangh chief Mohan Bhagwat said, “I was told, using the word ‘nation’ is okay, ‘national’ is okay, ‘nationality’ is okay, just don’t say nationalism. Because the meaning of nationalism is Hitler, Nazism, Fascism. So the word has slowly evolved to have other connotations.”

Further Mohan Bhagwat said, “What do countries do when they become the strongest? They exert their influence over other countries, they exploit other countries’ resources for themselves. That’s why researchers believe that a country becoming too powerful is bad for the world. A word like ‘nationalism’ isn’t taken to be in a positive way these days.”
