Dismissing India’s tradition of religious and cultural pluralism, Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) chief Mohan Bhagwat on Sunday said, “He who is an Indian is a Hindu and he who is not a Hindu is not an Indian.”

“For us, the word Hindu does not mean any religion but a way of life,” he said at an annual function of the RSS and the Hindu samagam (congregation) here.

But he also said India’s ethos of unity in diversity is the answer to problems facing the world today. He said the problems emanate from some communities’ attempts to bring about uniformity in the world.
