Sangh’s London dreams

June 26 2016

Like it was disclosed in this column for the first time, this July 30-31, Hindu Swayamsevak Sangh, known as a branch of the Sangh, will be celebrating its golden jubilee for completing 50 years in Britain. A two-day camp is going to be organized in London, which will see the attendance of noted Sangh leaders such as Mohan Bhagwat and Dattatreya Hosbole. Swamitra Gokhale, head of Sangh’s foreign department, is the main organizer of the event. The program might see the presence of world’s top celebrities such as Hollywood star Leonardo di Caprio, Virgin Airlines’ Richard Branson, India’s Sachin Tendulkar, and so on. The organizers have made it a point to keep the British government and London-based Indian embassy out of this. That is because the recent decision of “Brexit” and the announcement that David Cameron will resign, has created a lot of buzz. The program will see Maharishi Vedic Research University play a big part. The purpose behind this is to not only spread the message of Hindutva, but also to encourage vegetarianism. Personalities such as di Caprio and Richard Branson are also leaning in to campaign for beef ban and vegetarianism. Sangh wants Hindutva should also be looked through a scientific prism, so that its acceptance becomes global. Sources say the Sangh heads will stay there for two days, and will meet with world-famous personalities. The organizers have made it clear that big personalities such as Caprio and Branson will also not get to sit on the stage, which will be reserved for sadhus and saints, as well as spiritual gurus.
