After an objectionable comment on Indian Army by the RSS Chief Mohan Bhagwat, a tall claim made by BJP leader Uma Bharti has caused a political uproar.
Union Minister Uma Bharti has claimed that help was sought from RSS volunteers during a war against Pakistan. This war was the first war against Pakistan after the country gained independence.
Talking to the media, Uma Bharti said that after independence Pakistan attacked Jammu Kashmir, during that time the then Prime Minister Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru had sought help from the RSS in the war.
The Union Minister also said that “Jawaharlal Nehru had urged the then RSS chief MS Govelkar to send volunteers for help, and RSS volunteers went to take part in the war.”
On the controversial remarks made by RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat over the Indian army, Uma Bharti refused to say anything.
She also said that after independence, King Maharaja Hari Singh of Kashmir was not signing the treaty but Sheikh Abdullah pressured him to sign a treaty with India.
