The Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) on Tuesday expressed a ‘serious’ concern over the declining Hindu population in the Bengal state.

The RSS termed it a ‘grave concern’ that Hindu population has declined from 78% to a mere 70% in the state. Something needs to be done on this sharp decline. However, there is a rise in other minority population.

During the RSS council meeting held in Coimbatore, the organisation called upon the Bengal government to rise above petty politics. It also urges Centre to take firm action against jihadi elements.

“Increasing jihadi activities in Bengal are patronage of the state government. Police and state department has been turning a blind eye to protect the Hindu community,” RSS said.

RSS also talked about how efforts are being made to stop Sarawati pooja in educational institutions and the state government overlooking these developments.
