Bhopal: Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) chief Mohan Bhagwat has said that no one has the right to judge others' patriotism.

"Doosre ki bhakti naapne ka adhikar kisi ko nahin hai, mujhe bhi nahin hai (No one has the right to measure anybody's patriotism. I too don't have the right)," Bhagwat said on Saturday while releasing a book in Bhopal.

"Even if you think that you are running the show in the country, you cannot measure anybody's patriotism, or after evaluating it come out with a judgment on it that if this is the kind of 'bhakti' (devotion) you have, then it is patriotism, otherwise it isn't," Bhagwat said.

He unveiled the book 'Bharat ki Khoj Me Mere Paanch Saal' authored by journalist Vijay Monohar Tiwari.

Earlier, addressing the Hindu Sammelan in Betul district three days ago, the RSS Chief had said, "Whoever lives in Hindustan and has respect for its traditions, are all Hindus.

Muslims may have different way of performing prayers, but their nationality is Hindu." "All Hindus are accountable for Hindustan," he had added.
