I was in panel discussion at Christ University today on 'What is India's identity? Is it changing?'

I told India's primary identity is Hindu identity. A large section of audience gasped with shock as though I said something offensive. Some felt I was 'extreme'!
The kind of setback Hindus have faced in the narrative war is unbelievable and most unfortunate. It's a pity that we can't even call ourselves Hindu unapologetically.

Don't know how many decades of work is necessary to change this. Most important war to win is narrative war.
The idea that we became a new nation in 1947 & our Constitution is what makes us plural is the regular BS that our kids are fed with.

Unless Hindus realise that India is plural because India is majority Hindu & not just because of a Constitution, we won't go anywhere.
A concerted effort is made to negate our Hindu past, make it uncool to be Hindu, say we must look at the future & not past, say we are Constitutionalists, say we are Indian & nothing else, deliberately portray Hindusim to be regressive, change goalposts, speak of human identity
Young Hindus must be made to study bloody history of the abrahamic religions and their dogmas. They will themselves realise how they have been fooled to believe in superficial mumbo jumbo all these years.

Only the Hindu philosophy is universal and accepting. Rest are predatory
Hindu people have ZERO civilizational consciousness of how abrahamic religions have ruined them. This despite a thousand years of massacre & partition of country.

The Jews survive because they have developed a civilization consciousness about who they are and who they aren't
Muslim girl asked me when I mean Hindu identity, does it not have space for Muslims? I said of course Muslims can live, but must live in harmony with larger Hindu identity. I asked her if Muslims will state they will hold Constitution above Quran in case of conflict between two.
