The idea of turning India into a Hindu Rashtra is not appropriate : Amartya Sen

New Delhi – “I do not think the idea of turning India into a Hindu Rashtra is appropriate. The Lok Sabha election results reflect that India is not a Hindu Rashtra,” stated economist and Nobel laureate Amartya Sen.

“In a secular country like India, where there is an inclusive Constitution, our leaders need to be politically open-minded,” he further expressed while speaking to the media.

Amartya Sen further stated that, “So much money was spent on the construction of the Shriram Temple. Through this, an attempt was made to portray India as a Hindu Rashtra. Such an attempt was never made even during the times of Mahatma Gandhi, Rabindranath Tagore, and Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose. It shows an attempt to neglect India’s identity, and it must change. We always hope to see a change after every election. We have seen what has happened in the country after the last few elections. Some leaders are being jailed without trial. The gap between the rich and the poor is widening. All this needs to stop.”

Editorial Perspectives

Note that Jihadi terrorist organisations and religious fanatic Muslims are attempting to turn India into an Islamic nation, but the so-called liberals like Amartya Sen never open their mouths about it.

The idea of making India a Hindu Rashtra will never be liked by such people because they are Hindus only by birth and do not know anything about Hindu Dharma.
