New Delhi, July 18:
Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) patron Ashok Singhal on Saturday said India will become a Hindu nation by 2020 and the entire world would be Hindu by 2030.
Singhal was speaking at a function here to release a book on the life and work of former RSS chief K.C. Sudarshan.
The function was attended by External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj, veteran BJP leader Murli Manohar Joshi and RSS functionaries among others.
Singhal said: “Sudarshan ji, a great visionary, once told me that the entire country will be Hindu by 2020 and the entire world will be Hindu by 2030.”
“Sudarshan ji was not only a saint but a visionary, who had predicted that a revolutionary change in the country will begin in 2012 and ultimately that happened in 2014,” he said in an oblique reference to the BJP-led alliance’s victory in the 2014 Lok Sabha polls.
Sushma Swaraj said: “Sudarshan ji was like my mother. As girls used to share everything with their mother, I used to share with him everything.” (IANS)
