RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat today said that in present day India divergence of opinion must be respected and no one should try to slit the throat of another  on the issue of  difference of opinion. The RSS Sarsanghachalak today said this while he was delivering the Nivedita Memorial Lecture organised by Nivedita Mission Trust at Science City Auditorium.
Quoting Sister Nivedita who wrote on the importance for respect of other people's opinion Bhagwat said: ``We are all members of a great nation--we might have differences of opinion but we must bury them and work together for the betterment  of our country..Our ego should not prejudice our decision. In this context Nivedita said that we should learn from foreign countries where people listen to others even though he or she might have great dislike for him. People have different minds and different thinking and keeping all this in mind people should work to improve the lot of the country,'' Bhagwat said.
The Sarsanghachalak also said that the concept of Bharat Rashtra has been here since the time of the Vedas. ``Our country has always been a rich and prosperous country and all sorts of people with different culture and faiths have come and settled here. But they must be part of one nation, they must be Indians and that is how our country can become one of the greatest nations of the world,'' Bhagwat said.
