Later in the day Kejriwal visited the Hanuman temple in Delhi's Connaught Place, with his entry marked with loud cries of "Jai shree Ram, Jai shree Ram" from his supporters. Later he told reporters: "Hanuman ji sabka bhala karenga (Lord Hanuman will bless us all)." Not just Arvind Kejriwal, but other AAP leaders-Sanjay Singh and Raghav Chaddha-who addressed AAP workers at the party headquarters on Tuesday, too resonated these identities, leading crowds to the cheers of 'Bharat Mata ki jai', and 'Vande Matram'. Aaj mangal vaar hai...Hanuman ji ka din hai. Hanuman ji ne aaj apni Dilli pe kripa barsayi hai. Hanuman ji ka bhi bahut bahut dhanyavaad. Of course, Arvind Kejriwal and AAP leaders are well within their constitutional right to do so. And that's exactly what would make the Rashtriya Sawayamsevak Sangh (RSS) smile. For long, the RSS has been trying to cultivate a culture where politicians (irrespective of parties) don't feel shy wearing their Hindu identities in public and also cheer along the lines of 'Bharat Mata ki jai' and 'Vande Mataram'. The recent comment of RSS general secretary Suresh Bhaiyyaji Joshi puts this into perspective. "Hindu community does not mean Bharatiya Janata Party, and opposing BJP does not amount to opposing Hindus. Political fight will continue but it should not be linked to Hindus," Joshi said in Goa. Suresh Bhaiyyaji Joshi, Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) general secretary in Goa: Hindu community does not mean Bharatiya Janata Party, and opposing BJP does not amount to opposing Hindus. Political fight will continue but it should not be link So when a Rahul Gandhi takes a "holy" trip to Kailash Mansarovar just before Lok Sabha elections, claiming to be a "devout Shiv bhakt" who is a janeyudhari Brahmin hoping from one temple to the other, the RSS senses a victory of sorts. When a Shashi Tharoor talks proudly about Hinduism and slams RSS and BJP in his book 'Why I am a Hindu' for its polarising politics, the RSS, despite the attacks, senses a victory.
