At RSS Chief Meet With Muslim Leaders, Commitment To Toning Down Rhetoric

Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh chief Mohan Bhagwat has said he is concerned about the current "atmosphere of disharmony," former Chief Election Commissioner SY Quraishi told NDTV. Mr Quraishi was one of the five Muslim intellectuals who attended the 75-minute meet with Mr Bhagwat last month. The dialogue, he said was "positive" and "constructive" and covered aspects of mutual concern. The group had sought the meeting in August, weeks after Mr Bhagwat's statement questioning the need to "look for a Shivling under every mosque". In the backdrop of the Gyanvapi case and its effect on other religious places, Mr Bhagwat had also said the RSS - the BJP's ideological mentor -- does not favour any other movement ("andolan") on these issues.The group had flagged their concern about the situation in the country, Mr Quraishi told NDTV in an exclusive interview on Wednesday. "Mr Bhagwat said even he was worried," Mr Quraishi said. "I'm not happy with the atmosphere of disharmony. It is completely wrong. the country can move ahead only with cooperation and cohesion," he quoted the RSS chief as saying.
