RSS passes Resolution on India’s Selfhood

Updated: March 20, 2023 14:42

The following resolution was passed by the top decision making body of the RSS known as  Akhil Bharatiya Pratinidhi Sabha(ABPS). The ABPS meeting was held  from 12-14 March, 2023 at Panipat in the Indian state of Haryana.


Let us resolve for resurgence of Rashtra based on ‘Swa’ (Selfhood)

The Akhil Bharatiya Pratinidhi Sabha (ABPS) is of the considered opinion that the prolonged journey of Bharat’s ‘Swa’ to realize the noble objective of global wellbeing has always been a source of inspiration for all of us. During the period of foreign invasions and struggle, Bharat’s societal life got disturbed and social, economic, cultural and religious systems were severely mutilated. In this period, under the stewardship of revered saints and great personalities, the entire society preserved its ‘Swa’ while being in continuous struggle. The inspiration for this struggle was based on the ‘Swa – trayi’ of Swadharm, Swadeshi and Swaraj in which entire society participated. On the auspicious occasion of Amrit Mahotsav of independence, the whole nation gratefully acknowledged the public leaders, freedom fighters and seers who contributed in this resistance.

After independence, we have attained remarkable achievements in many fields. Today, Bharat’s economy is emerging as one of the leading economies of the world. The resurgence based on Bharatiya eternal values is being accepted by the world. Bharat is heading towards a role for ensuring global peace, universal brotherhood and human wellbeing based on the conceptual framework of ‘Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam’.

The ABPS is of the opinion that, in the process of making well organized, glorious and prosperous nation, we need to overcome the challenges of fulfilment of basic needs of all sections of society, opportunities for holistic development and building new models based on Bharatiya concept of modernity through judicious use of technology and eco-friendly development. For rebuilding the nation, we need to make special efforts for achieving the objectives such as strengthening the family institution, creating fraternity based harmonious society and developing entrepreneurship with Swadeshi spirit. The entire society, especially youth, will have to make concerted efforts in this regard. As renunciation and sacrifice were essential for freedom from the foreign rule during the period of struggle; in present times, we need to establish a social life free from colonial mindset and committed to civic duties for realization of abovementioned objectives. In this perspective, the call of ‘Panch Pran’ (five resolves) given by Honourable Prime Minister on Independence Day is significant.

The ABPS wishes to underscore the fact that while many countries have respect and goodwill for Bharat, some forces in the world are not accepting this Bharatiya resurgence based on its ‘Swa’. These forces opposing Hindutva thought within and outside the country are devising new conspiracies for creating mutual distrust in society, systemic alienation and anarchy by instigating selfish interests and divisiveness. While being vigilant towards all these, we also need to defeat their designs.

This ‘Amritkaal’ is offering us an opportunity to make collective efforts so that Bharat attains global leadership. The ABPS calls upon the entire society including enlightened people to participate, with full strength, in this endeavour of evolving contemporary systems in all the fields of social life including educational, economic, social, democratic and judicial institutions in the light of Bharatiya thought process, so that Bharat acquires its rightful place on the global stage as a strong, prosperous nation committed to universal wellbeing.
