New Delhi: Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) chief Mohan Bhagwat on Tuesday (January 14) evening said that the people of India should lead the world in finding unity in diversity rather than searching for diversity in unity.

"There is diversity in the universe, and we have to accept and respect it. It is the culture of this country to live with the knowledge that diversity came out of unity. We are not the ones who search for diversity in unity. We are the ones who understand that there is unity in diversity," Bhagwat said while addressing a gathering in the national capital.

He was attending an event to inaugurate a medical dialysis centre in Delhi, which was also attended by Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla.

The RSS chief said that people nowadays look for how they are different from others.

"Nowadays, our caste or political allegiance determine whether we are united or separated. This wrong approach has plagued the whole world. Indians have to correct this trend," Bhagwat said.

"It doesn't take long for one to become many. The universe was created on the whim of Bramha Ji. He said that he was alone and bored. So, the universe was created after a big bang and focused on creating many," he added.

Bhagwat said that RSS workers are always engaged in selflessly working for the welfare of the society and those in need.
