With education and affluence comes arrogance, as a result of which families fall apart, the RSS chief says.

 

RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat on February 16 said the cases of divorce are found more in “educated and affluent” families nowadays as education and affluence brings arrogance along, which results in families falling apart.
 
Mr. Bhagwat also said that there is no alternative to a Hindu society in India. He was addressing RSS workers in Ahmedabad.
 
“Nowadays the number of divorce cases have increased a lot. People fight over trifle issues. The cases of divorce are more in educated and affluent families, because with education and affluence comes arrogance, as a result of which families fall apart. The society also falls apart because society is also a family,” Mr. Bhagwat was quoted as saying in a statement issued by the RSS.
 
“We expect swayamsevaks to tell their family members about their activities in the Sangh, because many times women members of the family have to carry out more painful work than us to ensure that we can do what we do,” he said.
 
Mr. Bhagwat said confining women to homes has resulted in the condition of the society that we see today. “The condition of the society is because of the customs that have been practising here for the last 2,000 years. Women we have here were confined to homes. This was not the case 2,000 years ago. That was the golden age of our society,” he said.
 
“Hindu society should be virtuous and organised, and when we say society, it is not only men. A society is the one which gets its identity due to its sense of belonging,” he said.
 
“I am a Hindu, I respect the places of reverence associated with all faiths. But I am firm regarding my own place of reverence. I have got my sanskar from my family, and it is matru shakti, which teaches us so,” he was quoted as saying in the statement.
 
“There is no society without a household, and women, who comprise half of the society, should become more enlightened. But if we do not care about our society, then neither will we survive, nor our family,” he said.
 
“India has no option other than a Hindu society and Hindu society has no option but to behave like a family,” the RSS chief said.
