It is not proper to differentiate between Hinduism and Hindutva. Hinduism and Hindutva are not two words that can have entirely different definitions. Hinduism or Hindutva should represent the inclusive faith that is cherished by crores of proud Hindus like Shri Shashi Tharoor. True Hindutva and Sangh Parivar ideology are not at all one and the same. Sangh ideology is one that totally rejects the inherited diversity of our land. True Hindutva(Hinduism) can never identify itself with the Sangh ideology. If we equate Sangh ideology with Hindutva we are certainly doing great injustice to Hinduism. That would be tantamount to writing off the whole thing to the Sangh Parivar. Hindutva is more pluralistic and tolerant when compared with other religions. Though it also has positive as well as negative aspects like any other religion, Hindutva has always been able to accept and absorb contradictions and differences, as there are myriad ways and means for spiritual realization in it. In Hindutva itself there are hundreds of castes and sub-castes. Hindutva has incorporated into it even atheistic philosophies like Charvaka and Sankhya. Anchoring in such a tolerant tradition Hindutva has always welcomed other religions and civilizations like Jainism, Budhism, Sikhism, Islam, Christianity, Judaism and Zorashtrianism. As Hindutva is the cornerstone of the foundation of Indian pluralism it has ever been possible for India to pull through all the crises in its history. The ideology put forth by the Sangh Parivar does not conform to true Hindutva. It is very much wrong to call it a Hindutwa agenda. Sangh ideology is only a conglomeration of Hedgewarism, Savarkarism, Golwalkerism and such dogmas or isms. This exclusionary game has virtually turned out to be a theology which is perennially in need of some objects of hate. In the backdrop of the Sangh efforts to totally own Hindutva it is imperative that we should realize that true Hindutva and Sangh Parivar ideology are two different entities. As such Shri Shashi Tharoor ought to have used the term “Sanghy Pakistan” or “Sanghistan”.

Hmmm hilariously only party that has ever been able to attack and change the constitution is Congress under the emergency. The very party this man represents. Fucking hypocrites

In our country, Minorities are not treated equally but specially which is because of Congress party's vote bank politics. I don't think that BJP is great. But when compared to Congress, BJP is better in each and every aspect than Congress. Congress party is the reason for almost all the problems that our country faces today. Congress follows dynast rule. Congress divided different sections of the community time and again just to create vote banks. Indra Gandhi brought emergency. The guy Indra married was forced to changed his religion and his sirname was changed to Gandhi so that Congress could fool the poor and illiterate and gather votes in the name of "Gandhi". So, voting for Congress is the worst thing possible.

वही लोग जो शशि थरूर को उनके ब्रिटेन में दिए गए भाषण के लिए तारीफ करते नहीं थक रहे थे आज उनके दिए गए वक्तव्य को बिना पूरा पढे और उसका अर्थ समझे बिना जल्दबाजी में उनकी आलोचना कर रहे हैं. कहने का मतलब है ये है कि हम एक failed country को अपना competitor कैसे मान सकते हैं और कैसे वहां जो रहा है उसको हमारे देश के परिप्रेक्ष्य में देख सकते हैं. Wo देश धर्म की बुनियाद पे बना था, और यही चीज उस देश को धीरे धीरे खत्म भी कर देगा. वहां के लोग अन्य धर्म को क्या अपने ही लोगो मे से शिया और अहमदी मुसलमानों को second grade समझते हैं.. और उनको भी आए दिन मारते काटते रहते हैं. शशि जी का बस इतना कहना है कि हम india ko ek religious identity अगर देते हैं तो वो हमारे लिए aatmghati कदम होगा. अगर हम को अपने देश को उसका वो स्थान दिलाना है जो उसका हक़ है तो हमे नॉर्वे, स्वीडन और switzerland जैसे देशों को आदर्श मानना होगा,, ना कि ऐसे देश से तुलना करना जो कि बर्बादी के कगार पर है. Be sensible, think calmly and deeply before you form a opinion. बाकी आप सब लोग इस देश का हित ही चाहते हैं.

Shashi Tharoor exaggerated a little bit but apology is not required. Unfortunately Shashi Tharoor need to grow a thick skin to survive in the Indian politics. His private bill to Decriminalise Homosexuality turned down twice in LS as BJP has majority there. Also the charge for abetment of suicide of his wife Sunanda Pushkar is a vindictive politics by BJP.

According to Congress spokesmen Shergill advises each of its leaders and workers to exercise restraint, caution and choose their words and statements wisely... please cut the crap Mr Tharoor, we don't need your advice.

Snubbed by Khangress party of India for using the word Pakistan in a negative context. Snubbed by BJP for calling out the cow urine drinking extremists. I thought one might have snubbed Shashi for the suspicious death of one of his wives instead. Nevermind, he's still one the best public speakers India has right now.

Ninj Nin to be honest I don't think Patra is that dumb. He's pretending to be an angry and crazy hindutva fiend so that the BJP 's voter base can relate to him.

Cattle class???? Why irritated about being cattle class??? You want cow to become our national animal right???? And India will become Pakistan if secularism declines. Pakistan is 'Muslim Rashtra' and India will be 'Hindu Rashtra'. No place for free thinkers.

kunal Goyal The problem with Hindus is their double-standards regarding religion and caste. Over the centuries, Hindus have been extremely tolerant to other religions. But, they have been extremely INtolerant with themselves, namely the Brahmins and upper castes with the Dalits and other lower castes. It is still prevalent today, even in the so-called "Urban Liberal Elite" circles.
Art Man (2 months ago)
kunal Goyal If you want India to be secular as Europe, then why do you exhibit these double-standards by telling it's different. Okay, when did Christian Europe start accepting non-Christian refugees. Only a few years back under Angela Merkel. And, when it started, those pro-refugee parties started getting backlash. Now, far-right is sweeping across the continent, and parties across the political spectrum adopted anti-migrant policies. The door to Europe has been shut as fast as it was opened. Why don't you libtards understand that? Compare that to India, which has accepted Parsis to Tibetan Buddhists to modern-day Rohingyas. Are you kidding? India may not be appealing for a lot of people, but it is definitely appealing for poorer Bangladeshis across the border. So, coming to Modi. What makes you say that will happen to Muslims or Dalits if it hasn't happened already? People in 2014 were saying the same thing, but reality was different. Not only that, but there are videos of Rohingyas saying they feel safer in India than either Myanmar or even Bangladesh!

Art Man umm europe is way different than india if we look at the migration from africa, and. You talked about hindus in pak right? Well that would happen to muslims or dalits in India if modi gets the power in 2019,coming back to Europe, they have a increase of immigrants from africa and muslim countries but india is not a first world country yet and not so appealing to the immigrants looking for a better place.

Sambit Patra went into the most obvious stance of BJP. A very cheap one, I must say. Anyone and anything that disagrees with them is always associated with either Pakistan or China. Its amazing how only people stamped by them is considered as a nationalist and anyone who opposes is anti-Modi, anti-Hindu,anti-Indian,traitor. I don't expect the BJP to understand anything what he said.
Robin Frost (2 months ago)
@roublemac Right wing politics are on the rise. Its literally similar to legalising crimes. From Shinzo Abe in Japan to Donald Trump in US and now Modi in India. Its not one man its an organization and therefore to fight them is really hard.

Robin Frost lmao what I find hilarious is the world over all of these neo-liberals aka buddhijivi are getting their ass kicked. From USA to UK and very soon Germany. People are rejecting the identity politics. Keep at it keep being a regressive liberal so you guys can be thoroughly defeated in every part of the world

Sameer Chaubal You're no Marathi. Go back to your home Pakistani. We don't need your religious hate here. Shivaji Maharaj was so great that he knowingly went into the Mughal Kings domain, knowing they would capture him but even he had such high morals that he could never abuse people. That is a true Marathi. This is why Shivaji is remembered and not the Mughal. A person who calls others terrorists while spreading hate himself is a cut and clear Pakistani. There is no Afzal Guru for you here to worship. Go away shoo. And don't ever dare call yourself Indian or a Marathi. Stop sending terrorists to India and stay in your shitty country. Shoo!
