The Indian concept of nationalism advances the idea of 'Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam' and does not pose any threat to any country, therefore there cannot be a Hitler in India, RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat said on Friday, 23 September.

The Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) chief delivered a lecture organised by the Sankalp Foundation and a group of former bureaucrats in New Delhi.

"Our nationalism does not pose any threat to others...that is not our nature.

He said diversity has been part of India's concept of nationalism since ancient times and "for us, different languages and different modes of worshipping god is natural."

"This land not only gives food and water but also gives values.That is why we call it Bharat Mata."
