New Delhi, Aug 11 (ANI): RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat has stirred up a fresh political storm after stating that citizens of India should collectively be known as Hindus. Speaking at a rally on Sunday, Bhagwat said that the people of Hindustan should be known as Hindus, just as citizens of England are called English and of the US are called Americans. Congress general secretary Tariq Anwar told ANI, “Mohan Bhagwat is mistaken – the people who live in Hindustan are called Hindustanis, not Hindus. We cannot associate our country with any one religion, or language.” Communist Party of India Marxist (CPI-M) leader Brinda Karat to ANI that Rashtriya Swayam Sevak Sangh (RSS) leader Mohan Bhagwat’s statement where he called India a Hindu state is dangerous and condemnable, adding that it is against the secular nature of our country.
