Mohan Bhagwat, head of Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), met with numerous Muslim intellectuals, including the chief imam, Dr. Imam Umer Ahmed Ilyasi, on Thursday.
According to sources close to RSS, the gathering covered topics such as the Hijab debate, Gyanvapi, and maintaining religious unity and peace. Along with Bhagwat, other top RSS members present at the conference were Dr. Krishna Gopal, Indresh Kumar, Ramlal, and Karish Kumar.
According to Sunil Ambekar, the RSS’s Akhil Bharatiya Prachar Pramukh, the gathering was a step in the “Samvad” procedure.
Ambekar further added “RSS Sarsanghachalak interacts with individuals from diverse backgrounds. It is a step in the ongoing general ‘Samvad’ process.”
The Hijab debate began at a college in Karnataka and is presently being considered by the Supreme Court. The intelligence agencies’ assessment that PFI was responsible for starting the scandal also mentioned this.
Following the issue that started over Gyanvapi as well, the RSS Chief met with Muslim academics and intellectuals.
In a meeting with numerous Muslim intellectuals earlier on Tuesday, RSS Chief Mohan Bhagwat reviewed current controversies and strategies for promoting religious tolerance in the nation.
