Leonardo at RSS bash in London

sanskriti-mahashibir-2016THE UK-based Hindu Swayamsevak Sangh, known as a branch of the RSS, will be celebrating its golden jubilee in Britain at Hertfordshire County ground in Luten, about 45 km from London, on July 29-31, 2016. The RSS has branches in 34 countries. It is not present in Islamic nations, where it is not allowed to function. Its most prominent branches are in the US and England. RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat and other ideologues, Dattatreya Hosbole and Swamitra Gokhale, head of Sangh’s foreign department, are the main organisers of the event. The convention titled ‘Sanskriti Mahashivir’ (cultural meeting) will focus on Hindu philosophy, vegetarianism and cow slaughter. Some reports indicate that Hollywood star Leonardo DiCaprio and Richard Branson of Virgin fame will share the dais with Bhagwat. DiCaprio will in all probability endorse vegetarianism as well support a ban on cow slaughter. With the star attraction being DiCaprio, the convention is expected to be attended by more than 10,000 people.
