"The right wing isn’t interested in society. The crisis is one of Hindu nationalism, not of Hinduism."
"They get only 20 per cent votes but we built up the BJP as the natural leaders of Hindus. They are not leaders, but trespassers."
"It’s an identity crisis but not in the usual sense. It’s to do with representing the Hindu in the political sphere."
"The movement today is simply about power. It’s not about transforming the nature of Hindu society. That agenda is gone."

"I feel burdened by the calls to glory of the right, and also by the secularist suspicion of your interest in Hindu culture."
