‘Won’t let Bharat be Hindu Rashtra’

All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) president Asaduddin Owaisi said Bharat is “not a Hindu Rashtra” and they will not let it become so.

His comments came after RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat last week said the Sangh is firm on its vision that “Bharat is a Hindu Rashtra”.

Addressing a rally in Kalyan for party candidate Aiaz Moulavi on Monday night, Mr. Owaisi said a section of society wants to paint the entire country in one colour, but “we see Hindustan in multiple colours, it is the beauty of Hindustan.”

“Bharat is not a Hindu Rashtra, and Inshallah, we will not allow it to become so,” Mr. Owaisi said.

Alleging that the Shiv Sena was against the green colour, he said, “Change your spectacles and you will see the green colour in the national flag also.”

He said India is unique because of its secularism and pluralism. “I want to tell those in the RSS that we are not living here on your sympathy,” Mr. Owaisi said.
