RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat on Sunday made an appeal for turning the country into a “Hindu nation” saying Hinduism believed in the principle of “unity in diversity” as visualised by Nobel laureate Rabindranath Tagore.

Delivering the valedictory address at the five-day conclave of RSS workers here in Madhya Pradesh, Mr. Bhagwat cited Tagore’s book Swadeshi Samaj to drive home the point of Hindu rashtra.

Tagore had criticised the British in the book while observing that Hindus and Muslims won’t just finish each other by fighting among themselves but would rather find a way out and that path would be of “Hindu Rashtra,” he said, adding Hindutva advocated unity in diversity and harmony.
