"Hindutva" Militates Against Secularism
The Polit Bureau of the Communist Party of India (Marxist) has issued the following statement on August 18. THE Polit Bureau of the CPI(M) expresses its strong opposition to the various statements being made by the RSS chief, Mohan Bhagwat on `Hindutva’ which militates against the secular concept of Indian citizenship. Hindutva is a majoritarian concept which is part of the narrow and divisive agenda of the RSS. These provocative statements are designed to impose a majoritarian Hindu concept of the nation. The RSS and its various outfits are making a plethora of such objectionable statements ever since the BJP formed the government. The CPI(M) calls upon the people to reject such divisive statements and to uphold their unity based on their common citizenship irrespective of caste and creed.
