Shri Ram Sena justifies Bhagwat remarks on Hindu nation
Rajiv | 21 Aug 2014

Shri Ram Sena, State President Rajiv Mahajan on Thursday backed Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh chief Mohan Bhagwat's comment that India is a Hindu nation, saying the remark was absolutely right.

"I support the comments made by Mohan Bhagwat. What's wrong with it, if he calls it (India) a Hindu nation," asked Rajiv Mahajan in his statement issued today.

The Sena leader also claimed that he doesn't need permission from anyone to call India, a Hindu nation. "No one should feel ashamed to call this country a Hindu nation," he said.

At a programme in Mumbai, Mohan Bhagwat had said that India is a Hindu nation and Hindutva is its identity.

"Hindustan is a Hindu nation… Hindutva is the identity of India and it has the capacity to swallow other identities," Bhagwat had said.
