Bharatiya Janta Party (BJP) MLA Assem Goel from Ambala (City) in Haryana has vowed to make India a ‘Hindu’ nation.

At an event held by a social organisation in Ambala, amid sloganeering to make India a ‘Hindu Rashtra’ (nation), Mr. Goel, along with other participants, was seen taking a pledge to make India a Hindu nation for whatever it takes.

On Monday, Mr. Goel told reporters that the vow taken by him at the event was in capacity as a ‘Hindu’ and not that as BJP MLA. He said that he was a proud Hindu and also favoured the Uniform Civil Code.

Raising their hands as an expression to support the oath, the people present there could be heard asserting that to ensure that India is declared as a Hindu nation, they will, if needed make or take sacrifice.

The oath also added that “..let our ancestors provide us the capability to accomplish our objective.”
