The Telegraphh , Patna, dated 29 October ,2017  has published the following on its first page :

All Indians Hindus : Bhagwat.

Bhopal: RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat has said every Indian living in the country is a Hindu , a term he explained included all those who were the sons and daughters of "Bharat Mata."

"They are descendants of Indian ancestors and who live in accordance with Indian culture," he said.

Bhagwat , who was addressing college-going Sangh volunteers in Indore on Friday , reiterated that Muslims in India practiced Islam but had common roots with Hindus in terms of nationality .

"Whose country is Germany ? It is a country of Germans ; Britain is a country of Britishers; America is a country of Americans ..in the same way Hindustan is a country of Hindus .It does not mean that Hindustan is not a country of others" , he said .

In effect ,the word Hindu as explained  by him means Indian .But for the unfortunate background of the Hindu -Muslim relation in our country , there might not have been any reservation in accepting  Hindu as a synonym of Bharatiya meaning Indian in letter and spirit .

Hindu culture as referred to by him is itself not uniform .Hindus living in different parts of the country have different ways  of life though they have   shared core values and identity   .The Hindus of Bengal, Punjab, Tamil Nadu .Kerala and Maharshtra do not have the same way of life .The three generations of a Hindu family living anywhere also  follow  different  ways  of life in their dress , taste for food , taste of  music , attitude to the western culture,   and their world view ,yet they are not considered different i.e.less Indian or lesser Hindus . If Bhagwat's statement reflects this approach of embracing all Indians regardless of the differences in their religion and way of life, it would be a real tribute to Bharat Mata he is devoted to .
