Angul: Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) chief Mohan Bhagwat, who is on a three-day visit to Odisha, on Monday said his organisation is committed to ‘Hindutva’ and works for nation building leaving politics aside.

"RSS does not play politics. It is committed to Hindutva," said Bhagwat at an event in Angul district which was attended by Union ministers Jual Oram and Dharamendra Pradhan, and around 700 RSS workers.

India is traditionally a pious country and has seen many ups and downs. The country can now emerge as a global leader, he said, adding Hinduism is a way of life and not just a religion.

"When the western world looks east, they find India and China. But they (western world) do not have faith in China due to its aggressive attitude. All have faith in India. India can emerge as a global leader," he added.

Besides, he claimed that minorities are safe in India and Muslims "live happily here".
