The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Sunday reaffirmed its commitment to Hindutva - but an inclusive one, "not narrowly confined only to religious practices or expressed in extreme forms".
In a resolution the party unanimously adopted on the second and concluding day of its national executive meeting here, the BJP said the Hindutva which it believed in was related to the "culture and ethos" of the people of the country.
"Hinduism or Hindutva is not to be understood or construed narrowly confined only to religious practices or expressed in extreme forms," the resolution said.
"It is, therefore, inclusive representing the finest imprints of our cultural and civilisational ideas. This profound concept is the real inspiration for a resurgent India with which the BJP is proud to be associated," it said.
