Day after RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat said the Sangh has been working for a "Hindu Rashtra", AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi on Wednesday said that the idea of a 'Hindu Rashtra' is based on the idea of Hindu supremacy.
On Tuesday, Bhagwat had said the vision and proclamation of the Sangh regarding the identity of the nation and the identity of the country's nature are "clear, well-thought-of and firm" that Bharat is "Hindustan, Hindu Rashtra".
The RSS chief said that for the last nine decades, the Sangh has been working for "creating ekatmata (unity), sadbhavana (goodwill), sadacharan (good conduct) and sadvyavahar (good behaviour) in the society, and a clear vision and devotion towards the nation."
Reacting to Bhagwat, Owaisi took to Twitter and said: "The idea of Hindu Rashtra is based on Hindu supremacy. It means subjugation of anyone who isn’t Hindu. Minorities will only be ‘allowed’ to live in India."
"According to the Constitution, we’re India i.e Bharat. Hindu Rashtra is a flight of fantasy borne out of insecurities."
