The RSS chief also backed the government’s decision to allow export of anti-malaria drug hydroxychloroquineNagpur: It is not right to ostracize an entire group if a section of it has committed an irresponsible act, said RSS Sarsanghchalak (chief) Mohan Bhagwat in an online address on the occasion of Akshaya Tritiya. Hinting at the Tablighi Jamaat incident and its fallout, Bhagwat said it is not right to have the same yardstick for an entire group and boycott them. There are black sheep everywhere, said Bhagwat, who stressed that such incidents should not fuel hatred or divide in the country. “There may be fears among people about being quarantined or anger for being bound to their homes, but even the RSS has cancelled all its programmes till June,” he said. Leaders of every group should be preventing their people from such acts, said Bhagwat, as he also condemned the lynching of two Sadhus in Palghar . The RSS chief also backed the government’s decision to allow export of anti-malaria drug hydroxychloroquine. As it came after the US President Donald Trump’s statement that India may have to face retaliation if the ban on exports is not lifted, the government had drawn flak for the move. He narrated an incident of an Indian monk who had been to China to spread Buddhism and decided to print a book on his teachings in the Chinese language. “When he collected funds for the first time a massive earthquake struck and the money was spent on helping the victims. It was called the third edition of Buddha’s teachings, because twice before the monk had spread the message by his deeds,” said Bhagwat.
