...will Damage Holistic Indian Society - K.S. Sudarshan, the great proponent of Hindu rights and self-respect and former Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) Chief, has left the world forever. He took his last breath in Raipur, the capital of Chhattisgarh. He was fifth Sarsanghchalak of RSS.

He was well educated and an engineering graduate, but he dedicated his whole life to RSS after joining Sangh in 1954. He always believed in service of humanity and he was a deep Hindu devout. He had deep love for his country.

When he assumed the post of Sarsanghchalak in 2000; minorities had lot of ill-will towards RSS.Communal tension was rampant in the country. K.S. Sudarshan tried very hard to diffuse the atmosphere of mistrust by starting the process of dialogue.

He was known to put forward his words in straightforward manner. He always opposed appeasement of minorities. He advocated Indianisation of Muslims and Christians. It was his efforts that led to softening of stands of Muslims towards Sangh. His impact was palpable when many Muslims came to pay homage in Nagpur. He also advocated Swadeshi Church.

He was of the firm view that Hindu never disrespects any other religion as it is not taught to him. He defined Hinduism through five elements: Respecting other faiths, live and non-live objects are same, man is part of nature and he is not owner of nature, respect for women and material pursuit is not the only aim of life. Hinduism is amalgamation of these five traits.

He was also of the view that Christian missionaries did not have equal view and respect for other faiths. If they would disrespect our culture, religion and God; they should not respect the same from us.

In 2000 he started a dialogue with representatives of Protestants and Catholics.Chief Evangelist Dr Paul Dinakaran and Late D.G.S Dinakaran. He clearly told no Hindu is against philosophy of Jesus Christ, but they are certainly against conversion.

His thought puts him in the league of Swami Vivekananda, Maharishi Arvind, Swami Abhedanand and Mahatma Gandhi. These saints realized that what church does and what Jesus preached-are two distinct things.

In the name of freedom of speech, Church is spreading hatred. That freedom of speech is respectable which is realistic and logical.

However, what church spreads cannot be tolerates as it is pure anarchy. West has been able to run his horse because of the social structure that is fundamentally promotes singularity. Other faith people are not in position to challenge them.

As a Sarsanghchalak he travelled Thailand, Britain, Holland, Kenya, Singapore, Malaysia, Hongkong, Canada, USA, Trinidad and Tobago and Guyana to promote humanity. He was totally against imitating of west as this goes against fabrics of Indian society. Indian society is more balanced in its approach whereas western society because of its singular character is less balanced in its approach.
