New Delhi, India (August 18, 2014): The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) today slammed Hindu supremacist body Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh (RSS) chief Mohan Bhagwat for calling India a Hindu nation. Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) said such remarks were “dangerous indication of things to come”.
According to reports AAP accused the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh and the Bharatiya Janata Party of dividing the society along communal lines to get political mileage in four poll-bound states.
“Statement made by RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat that India is a Hindu nation and Hindutva can assimilate other religions into it, is a dangerous indication of things to come,” said a statement from the Aam Aadmi Party.
The country’s newest political organisation also criticized the Narendra Modi government for “shifting the line of discourse.”
“Instead of addressing the issues of immediate concern, like inflation, the government is now trying to shift the line of discourse,” the party further added.
“From the day Modi government assumed power, the RSS and its frontal organisations have been trying hard to stoke communal hatred. The BJP and the Sangh pariwar wants to repeat the Muzaffarnagar experiment in other parts of the country as well,” it added.
Mohan Bhagwant on August 18 reasserted his Hindu claim saying: “Hindustan is a Hindu nation … Hindutva is the identity of our nation and it (Hinduism) can incorporate others (religions) in itself”.
