Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh chief Mohan Bhagwat has called for a reassessment of Hindu values which don't have a scientific basis.

“There is a need to assess the prevalent Hindu religion along scientific lines. Those values that do not conform to scientific standards should be given up," he said at a conference on "Indian Perspectives On Women’s Issues" in Jaipur. The Indian Express reported today.

“There is a need to assess the prevalent Hindu religion along scientific lines. Those values that do not conform to scientific standards should be given up," he said.

Bhagwat said that Indian society had a tradition of discarding redundant traditions and accepting “good things from all over the world," while emphasising that men and women are regarded as equal in the Hindu way of life.

"All issues and problems should be viewed through the Hindu life philosophy, he said. “The Hindu life view looks at men and women as two expressions of a single element. It therefore lays stress on unity instead of equality,” he said.
