He further said, “I believe that merely speaking at a particular forum does not in any way mean that one endorses all, or any, of the views that might be expressed at the forum, or which may be held by the organisers. So I see no issue in speaking at an occasion where people have gathered to discuss how to contribute to the country.”
“Some people expressed apprehension about my participating in this function,” Premji said.
He further added, “They felt that by addressing a forum like this I would be seen as endorsing the ideology of the Sangh. I did not follow their advice because I am not a political person. I am, however, deeply interested in and concerned about my country.”
