A three-day leadership summit for the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) commenced in Jhunjhunu, Rajasthan. Prominent figures including Mohan Bhagwat, the RSS chief, and other key functionaries like Manmohan Vaidya, Arun Kumar, Dr. Krishan Gopal, and CR Mukund are participating in the discussions.

Centenary Celebration Plans Take Center Stage

Sources close to the organization report that a primary focus of the meeting revolves around strategizing for the RSS’s centenary year, falling in 2025. Discussions reportedly include the possibility of holding a celebratory event in Kashmir, following the abrogation of Article 370.

Beyond Celebrations: Expansion and Internal Review

The three-day agenda also encompasses evaluating the RSS’s outreach programs undertaken over the past decade to strengthen its national presence. Prant Pracharaks, or regional leaders, will be sharing insights and experiences related to these expansion efforts.

Addressing Communal Tensions and Promoting Harmony

In the wake of the recent violence in Rajasthan and other parts of the country, the RSS functionaries will reportedly address the prevailing social climate and explore ways to foster communal harmony. Sources indicate that the Muslim Rashtriya Manch (MRM), led by RSS leader Indresh Kumar, has planned tribute meetings for the victim and is actively engaging with various Muslim organizations to promote peace and combat extremism.

Engaging Muslim Communities: A Multi-Pronged Approach

The MRM’s strategy reportedly involves collaborating with nearly 50 Muslim organizations to spread messages of peace and quell communal tensions. Religious leaders, academics, and respected individuals from the Muslim community are expected to be part of this outreach initiative.

This leadership summit signifies the RSS’s focus on internal growth, national unity, and strategizing for its future in the lead-up to its centenary year.
