RSS Chief Mohan Bhagwat, while speaking at a symposium on the topic of 'Rashtra Pratham - Rashtra Sarvopari' in Mumbai on September 6, said that the Britishers divided Hindus and Muslims and made them fight by creating misconceptions. The symposium was organised by Global Strategic Policy Foundation.
Bhagwat said: "Britishers told Muslims that they won't get anything if they decided to live with Hindus, that only Hindus will be elected and exhorted them to demand a separate nation. They said Islam will disappear from India. Did it happen?"
