In a blog posted on its official website, “Exchange of views and ideas is intrinsic to the Bharatiya concept of dialogue”, the organization said that the invitation and its acceptance is a “continuation” of the democratic tradition, enshrined in our cultural ethos.
Mukherjee’s acceptance of RSS invitation last month had raised several eyebrows. Several Congress leaders were dismayed with Mukherjee’s decision and had asked him to reconsider his decision. Today’s blog came close on the heels of Mukherjee’s address and in the backdrop of criticism of his acceptance of the RSS’ invitation.
The blog claimed that the communist idea of “thought conformity” was the reason behind the opposition to Mukherjee’s address.

“Their idea of “thought conformity” necessitates this approach that not only rejects healthy exchange among diverse stakeholders but protests it,” it read.
The blog also cited an example of Magsaysay Award winner Abhay Bang who, like Mukherjee, was criticised for accepting the invitation to an RSS event.
Bang’s decision to attend the RSS event was criticized by “eminent socialists with all kinds of ‘left leanings’ in Maharashtra”.
“Bang responded to the pressure by stating that he was going to present his views at the function, so why the opposition? In fact, he went on to praise the open-mindedness of the RSS, who had invited him as an honoured guest despite knowing his views; in fact, it was the ‘leftists’ who were exhibiting their intolerance despite all their claims to the contrary in rhetoric,” the blog wrote.
The blog then cited several examples of meetings, discussion and invitation to events with people and organizations holding ideologies which were in contrast with RSS’ line of thought, implying that exchange of ideas has always been intrinsic to RSS’ ideology.
The blog concluded by accusing the opposition to Mukherjee’s attendance at the event “non-Bharatiya and an assault on our democratic traditions, as a culture and the largest democracy in the world”.
