Hindutva politics is an assault on Hinduism: Shashi Tharoor

Writer-Politician Shashi Tharoor, in his new book, "The Hindu Way An Introduction To Hinduism", published by Aleph, stated, "Hinduism, with its openness, its respect for variety, its acceptance of all other faiths, is one religion which has always been able to assert itself without threatening others. But this is not the Hindutva that destroyed the Babri Masjid, nor the spewed in hate-filled diatribes by communal politicians". Tharoor further writes, "It (Hindutva) seeks to refashion Hinduism as something it has never been...The Hindutva project seeks to reinvent Hindu identity with a new belief structure and a new vocabulary". Tharoor further asks, "How dare a bunch of goondas to shrink the soaring majesty of the Vedas and the Upanishads to the petty bigotry of their brand of identity politics? Why should any Hindu allow them to diminish Hinduism to the raucous self-glorification of the football hooligan, or take the religion of awe-inspiring tolerance and reduce it to a chauvinist rampage?"

PM Modi working hard towards transforming society: Manoj Tiwari

Delhi BJP chief Manoj Tiwari hailed PM Modi's 57th radio broadcast address 'Mann Ki Baat' and said, "PM Modi's small act of talking to people via phone on Mann Ki Baat is a great move. He has assumed the role of transforming the society; this is also the first time that I have seen PM calling up Lata Mangeshkarji on her birthday. She is a Bharat Ratna awardee but nobody else had bothered to inquire about her, this gesture means a lot".
