He said 'sensitivity' towards the society was at the core of RSS' service, which it continue to render "as long as there in sorrow in the society". Bhagwat said a Swayamsewak (volunteer) of the Sangh is free from self-interest and there is no "motive" behind the service he renders.
He also referred to wide network of RSS and the work being done by the outfit in different states.
Meanwhile, Shaista Amber, President of the All India Muslim Women's Personal Law Board, after a meeting with the RSS chief said 'unnecessary misconception' was being spread about the Hindu right wing organisation and claimed it does not speak only about 'Hindutva or Hindu Rashtra'.
"I am of the belief that RSS does not speak only about Hindutva. I don't feel that the Sangh only talks about Hindutva or Hindu Rashtra," She said, adding due to several "misleading" things about the outfit's "negative attitude" towards Muslims, she doubted whether Bhagwat would meet her.
