There is nothing wrong in Hindu Rashtra concept: UP CM Yogi Adityanath.

Uttar Pradesh CM Yogi Adityanath says nothing wrong with Hindu Rashtra concept, BJP defends him.

HT Media | Lucknow | April  6, 2017:: Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath endorsed the Hindu Rashtra theory on Thursday, saying there’s nothing wrong with such a move if that serves the interests of the people and country.

Right-wing groups led by the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) have been pitching to make India a Hindu nation, a hugely debatable topic in a constitutionally secular country of 1.2 billion people of different faiths.

“Hindu Rashtra ki awadharna kahin galat nahi hai … desh ki full bench ki Supreme Court ne iss par apna aadesh jaari kiya hai yeh. Hindutva koi mat, koi majhab ya upasana vidhi nahi hai. Balki it’s a way of life (There is nothing wrong in the Hindu Rashtra concept. The Supreme Court has defined Hinduism as a way of life.),” monk-politician Adityanath said in an interview to Doordarshan.

[In a free-wheeling and frank chat with DD News’ Ritu Verma, Adityanath spoke on a range of issues related to his nearly 60 snappy decisions related to BJP election manifesto encompassing loan-waiver for farmers, illegal slaughter  ban, security for girls and women and development of UP; within a span of 18 days since he assumed office. -Ed. HE].

He said no one should have a problem in accepting a Hindu nation if such a move helped people live a better life and brought joy to them.

The BJP defended Yogi’s remarks saying that the chief minister had not said anything wrong.

“For far too long we have been pseudo-seculars who frowned upon anything that is Hindu. What’s wrong in the CM’s statement? He said that he would follow the path of peace and progress. Hinduism has always stood for peace,” state BJP general secretary Vijay Bahadur Pathak said.

Adityanath, a five-term parliamentarian and head priest of Gorakhnath mutt in Gorakhpur, was appointed chief minister last month after the BJP won an unprecedented 325 seats with its allies in the February-March assembly elections in Uttar Pradesh.

“Main kisi ke mooh par tape nahi laga sakta … mujhe jo karna hai pradesh ke hit main kaam karna hai (I can’t shut people up. I will continue to work for the people.),” he said, responding to a query on negative reports in international media about his image of being a champion of Hindutva.

“My guide is the Modi government at the Centre. It’s my inspiration. I will follow that.”

His Hindu Rashtra line underscores the views of the RSS, the BJP’s ideological mentor.

The Sangh, however, explains that its Hindu nation theory has more to do with the country’s name Hindustan — a far-reaching social movement, rather than a restricted religious concept.

RSS leader Bhaiyyaji Joshi had remarked that those living in “Hindustan are Hindus”, after a meeting of the organisation’s highest decision-making panel in Lucknow in 2014.

His comments are a reflection of a popular RSS belief that it wants reinforced.

Former RSS chief KS Sudarshan had quoted a 1977 article from Saptahik Hindustan to make his point. He drew on an anecdote that the Shahi Imam of Delhi’s Jama Masjid was asked in Mecca if he was a Hindu because “all Hindustanis were called Hindu” in Saudi Arabia.

India is a Hindu-majority country but includes 150 million Muslims, and large communities of Christians, Sikhs, Jains and Buddhists.

The BJP’s landslide election victory in Uttar Pradesh, the country’s most populous state that has a sizeable Muslim population, rekindled the debate over the right wing’s push for a Hindu nation.

    Hindu was a geographical term to denote residents of Hind (India). It means someone that belongs culturally to the unique civilization of Hind. The British made it into a religious term. For example, tIll 100 years ago, Sikhs would be shocked if you said they were not Hindus. The British tried every trick in the book to make them feel separate. We should not fall into this trap. The word Hindu does not denote a specific religion, but a cultural identity which all Indian share.

    The appointment of the Hindu cleric Yogi Adityanath as chief minister of Uttar Pradesh has created waves in the Indian media. It is an event that could well have significant ramifications for Nepal. Adityanath has more extensive links and stronger opinions about this country than perhaps any chief minister of any Indian state bordering Nepal since Indian independence. Yogi Adityanath is the mahant of the Gorakhnath temple in Gorakhpur. Anyone with knowledge of Nepali history will instantly recognize that the Gorakhnath temple had deep historical ties with Nepal’s erstwhile royal family. Prithvi Narayan Shah himself supposedly received the blessings of the Mahant of the temple before he waged his conquests that led to the formation of the modern Nepali state. From that time onwards, each Nepali king visited Gorakhnath to seek the deity’s blessings.

    Yogi Adityanath was outspoken about political events in Nepal during the early years of the peace process. He vociferously criticized the decision of the mainstream parliamentary parties to ally with the Maoists (whom he viewed as anti-Hindu criminals), as well as the decision to establish a secular and republican state. In his view, Hindu monarchy was the only thing that could hold Nepal together, and he often claimed that the abolition of the institution would lead to Nepal’s fragmentation. He is also thought to have actively supported the Madhes movements in 2007 and 2008. Still, for the Hindu cleric-turned-chief minister, the revival of a Hindu state and monarchy was, and continues to be, far more important than any demands for the inclusion of marginalized groups. When Nepal adopted a constitution in 2015, he barely said anything about the Madhesi demands. He, however, condemned the document as it made Nepal a secular, rather than a Hindu, state.

    Since 2006, Nepal’s situation has been gradually deteriorated. This is because our basic fundamental values are violated; consequently national unity and sustainable peace has not been achieved. The constitution is non-functional with the annulment of the constitution of 1990 that was suddenly suspended without any reason. The country has been unconstitutionally declared so called republic and secular state. This is in fact, foremost cause of the deteriorate situation of the country. We Nepalese hope that India- a neighbor, a friend, and a largest Hindu community must stand with us in this issue. If the royal institution is reinstated in Nepal, most of problems would be solved. We can reinstate peace and thus, we can assure our neighbors about their security concerns.

    In the context of India, 80 per cent of the population is Hindu. During the 1000 years of Muslim and English rule the Hindu shrines were destroyed and vandalized; and India desecrated and Hindu values harmed. India became Independent in 1947 after a great struggle by Indian nationalists. The constitution of the independent India declared itself ‘secular’. A secular India was established following a joint effort between Hindu, Muslim and Christian’s to draft a new constitution. It is not possible now to declare India a Hindu nation. It is not possible constitutionally. India should have been a Hindu nation from 1947. But Mahatma Gandhi, Jawaharlal Nehru and other leaders wanted secular system to create the harmonious among all the religions. Then, the secular tradition has established. So, the Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath should understand the fact of India.

    India has witnessed the historical victory of nationalist patriotic power as a democratic practice of world’s largest democracy. We heartily congratulate Prime minister Sri Narendra Modi, a visionary leader. We believe Indo- Nepal relations will find new dimensions with new government of India. We are against any interference. But we always seek positive support and developmental cooperation. At this time, we are in crisis. All Nepali people want India be supportive in reinstating our lost pride-Hinduism and constitutional monarch. The Nepalese monarch always has goodwill with India. The fact is that the Nepalese monarchs held special right for carrying out ritualistic worship in many Hindu shrines and temples in India. Then, India’s Hindutwa also can be dignified.

    The Hindu kingdom and monarchy of Nepal is essential not only for our internal issues, but also for security concerns of our neighbor countries. So, there must be restored Hindu kingdom and we must respect Nepal’s monarchical system and for that we must enthrone the King.
    Thank you
