Hindu word represent people living in Indian subcontinent, it is mispronounced form of word Sindhu (Indus). Hindu stand for same sense as the word Indian it is all about you wan to call it river “Sindhu” or river “Indus” , You want to call it Sindhu Civilization or Indus valley civilization. The only difference I see that while I am writing it shows a error on word “Sindhu” but no such sign o on word “Indus” :P.
But the strange thing is that now river Indus is a part of Pakistan and also most important sites of Indus valley civilization like “Harappa ” and “Mohenjodaro” are present in Pakistan, so by definition people living in Pakistan are more Indian or Hindu ( now as DNA study suggest that all people in Indian subcontinent share same DNA so please come out of dream that you are son of some Arab or Turk ). But in desire to prove themselves Muslims they have forgotten there Identity and they are paying the prize. There is nothing wrong in being a believer of Allah but when you want to change your whole identity from Indian to Arab you can never bring all on same boat because their natural extinct will resist. History matter my friend you can not put all under burka or take them totally away from Art, science , habit of questioning and knowledge when they have a history of doing so and not doing so. And you end up as Pakistan ,Bangladesh, Afganistan under Taliban or Iran few years back because you tried to convert a civilization to Arab ( And fact is Arab do not even spit on face of people from Indian subcontinent). I think I have lost the track coming back to topic.
Now the real point is that there was not such thing like Hindu civilization and we all are from same civilization irrespective of our religion. By calling it Hindu civilization you are narrowing down the history of India and you are pushing people from other faith out of boat which can result in destruction of nation( as people from other religion see Hindu as a religion, I do not ). Now my point is even by going from RSS and right wing definition Claiming Hindustan a “Hindu Rastra” is like asking for India to be called “A nation of Indians” which make no sense as this already work it that way,India is a nation of Indians. There is no need to bring out a notification like that.
The question arises, who is Hindu ? for me its like questioning who is Indian ?
If your answer to following questions is NO, for me you are a Hindu or Indian:
- Do you believe you are superior than others because of religion you follow ? (for me those people who claim to be Hindu but feel superior on basis of cast they born in are not Hindus or Indian )
- Do you believe faith should be spread by force and fraud ?
You see people from different religion differently as you are made to see so. When it comes about religion path is personal choice, in the last he is either one or there is no one.
For Indians Religion is about celebration not about fear, and it should never be. Because when you will fear you will get fooled, It does not matter he is a Mulla or Pandit.
