All are equal before God, castes made by priests: Mohan Bhagwat

Conscience and consciousness are all the same in the country, just the opinions differ, Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) chief Mohan Bhagwat said on Sunday.
He was addressing an event at the auditorium of Ravindra Natya Mandir on the occasion of the 647th birth anniversary of Saint Shirom Rohidas.
Bhagwat said, “When we earn a livelihood, we have also responsibility towards the society. When every work is for the greater good of the society, how can any work be big, small or different?”
“To our maker, we are equal. There is no caste or sect. These differences were created by our priests, which was wrong,” he added.
He said Saint Rohidas has a stature greater than Tulsidas, Kabir and Surdas, which is why he is considered Saint Shiromani. He invoked Saint Rohidas to say that religion is not just about filling up one’s stomach.
“Do your work, and do it according with your religion. Unite the society and work for its progress, as that is what religion is about…,” the RSS chief said.
