India is already a Hindu nation: Goa deputy CM Francis D'Souza


Panaji, July 25 (IANS): India is already a Hindu nation and "all Indians in Hindustan are Hindus", Deputy Chief Minister Francis D'Souza said Friday.

Defending the comments of his cabinet colleague Deepak Dhavalikar who said that Modi could make the country a 'Hindu nation', Francis D'Souza told reporters: "It was always a Hindu nation and will always be a Hindu nation. You don't have to create a Hindu nation."

D'Souza, one of the seniormost minority members of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in Goa, said that he considered himself a "Christian Hindu".

"India is a Hindu country. It is Hindustan. All Indians in Hindustan are Hindus, including I - I am a Christian Hindu," D'Souza said.

Dhavalikar triggered a national controversy Thursday while speaking during a motion congratulating Narendra Modi on becoming prime minister.

"If we all support it and we stand by Narendra Modi systematically, then I feel a Hindu Rashtra will be established," Dhavalikar said.

D'Souza insisted that Dhavalikar had no "clarity in his mind" because India was already a Hindu nation.

    The Mandate given to Mr Modi is for country's development and removal of Corruption. The BJP and Modi's men have conveniently forgotten these things and started indulging in unnecessary issues. Let's remind them. Dhayanithi, Coimbatore, Tamil Nadu

    If our ancestors were Adam and eve, then why all of us not look same?, why some look dark, some very white, some brown, some very good looking, some not good looking, some big nose, some small? Why Chinese, Japanese all looks same?,
    why most of Europeans looks same?,
    why all African look dark?. If their’ s and ours parent are one, why look different?

    Secondly as far as Hindu is concern it is not derived from one person thought or book. Hindu means land not religion hence Hindustan, land east of Sindhu River. Hindu is a way of life and Indian way of belief. Not one swami’s/ holy persons belief. I see many my Muslim and Christian friends are having many Indian culture ( Bindi, karimani, understanding every once thought, caste system, from where they got converted. Looking at that i never feel they are only Christian they Hindu Christian and hindu Muslims.

    You are right Valerian, kids from the same set of parents are different and this is genetic traits from generations causing the phenomena. We do know that certain traits can skip generations as well. This confirms that we evolved and are not created like what you believe, that the world was created 4000 BC which is roughly 6000 years ago and god created Adam and Eve in his image ???. We had people in earth building civilizations thousand years before this timeline whose image were they created ? . So let us debunk this creation theory, it has no place in science or common sense. I will not argue any more with anyone who tries to support this creation theory.

    Dear M.hussain, qatar
    Bhaijaan aap ki galath fahmi abhi dhur kartha hun , aapko patha hain varna aur jaathi ka difference ?
    Brahmin, Kshatriya, Vaishya and Shudra is ‘Varna’ and not Jaati. And ‘Varna’ means one that is adopted by choice!!
    Jaati means a classification based on source of origin. or those having similar birth source form a Jaati (Nyaya Sutra states “Samaanaprasavaatmika Jaatih”.)
    Ok now coming back to 4 Varnas
    Those who choose to be Arya are called ‘Arya Varna’. Those who choose to be Dasyu become ‘Dasyu Varna’. Same for Brahmin, Shudra, kshathriya and vaishya, so Vedic Dharma is called ‘Varnashram Dharma’. The word Varna itself implies that this is based on complete freedom of choice!!
    Who is a bhrahman:- Those involved in intellectual activities have chosen Brahmin Varna
    Kshathriya:- Those into defense and warfare are Kshatriya Varna
    Vaishya:-Those in economics and animal rearing are Vaishya Varna
    Shudra :-Those involved in other support functions are Shudra Varna
    SO they merely refers to various choices of professions and have nothing to do with any Jaati or birth.!
    Think your doubt is cleared , Now don’t be upset that you got ruined by some propaganda!!

    In the third century B.C. when the Greeks under Alexander the great invaded India, they referred to Indians as Sindhus and later the British and Europeans called as Hindus, by which they didn’t refer to any religion. In fact the religion that Hindus follow today is more correctly known as Vedaism or the Vedic religion. By the word Hindu, the Europeans referred to a nationality and not religion. In the present day Hindu refers to the follower of Vedic religion and Hindustani as nationality. In this context Mr. D'Souza would have been more correct had he said he is a Christian Hindustani rather than a Christian Hindu.

    Secondly, fact has to be accepted that India with Hinduism as major religion is a Hindu country just as Pakistan is Muslim and the U.S. is a Christian country. It is up to the majority to maintain it as secular or theocratic.

But I am sure that blood was INDIAN. Grow up man, accept your mistake and say you are Indian first. Hindu, Muslim, Christians, Sikhs are brothers in integrated India and they all unitedly fought for our much deserved freedom.

    He is correct. Hinduism is a way of life and not a religion. We are followers of sanathana dharma which means eternal truth. To make it more clear, it is not faith based or not something one practices. Only an institutionalized religion like Christianity or Islam requires a faith, in the sense you need to fundamentally accept your holy book and it's commandments similar to rules of an organization or institution. I hope you see the difference. This is just informational and nothing to prove one is good or bad.
    Having said that there is no conversion in Hinduism. Think of it this way if an institution doesn't exist how do you become a part of it. So if you were to dump your belief or if you were to become an atheist then you could be categorized to be following the truth that you perceive which is eternal truth or Sanathana Dharma. Please remember this was the dharma of your ancestors, one in that lot decided to convert and take over the sponsors name and today you seem to have forgotten your dharma which is no loss to anyone.

So I feel proud to be an Indian as a Human being, one may practice any religion living in India or anywhere like USA is also a secular state and practicing all religions with majority Christian population. This means all rights of all individuals are protected by constitution of any state. Let us love India as brothers and sisters and bring unity among all people of India irrespective of any religion one belongs and support any leader of the country one belongs.

    We are not able to distinguish between Nationality,religion and language.
    Our beautiful country is called by different names.India,Bharath ,Hindusthan. Wow . can you name any other country having 3 names?
    And we the people born in India are called as Indians.We are Hindusthanis because we are born in Hindusthan.Navellaru Bharathiyaru yekendare naavu Bharatha deshada prajegalu.
    But we follow different religions.
    Those who follow hinduism are called as hindus.Here is the confusion.One who is born in Hindusthan also can be called as a hindu.just as Narendra Modi is called as NAMO.In such case those who follow Hinduism can not claim that those who follow Hinduism only are Hindus.All those who are born in Hindusthan are Hindus by Nationality irrespective of the religion they follow.He could be a Indian -christian,muslim,hindu,jain,bhuddist,Sikh,parsee .Here instead of the word Indian we can prefix Hindu also because he is a Hindusthani.
    further we indians ,hindusthanis(Hindus),bharatians speak several languages could be the highest in the world.once again divided based on the language we speak.Kannada christian,konkani christians,malyalee christian ,tamil christian so on.So also the one who follow hinduism.he could be a konkana,tuluva,kanndiga,but, he is a Hindu.
    Once again this hindusthani is divided based on the state he lives. he could be a Mlore christian,Goan,Keralite,Tamilian and so on.
    On the whole irrespective of the state, language, religion,wherever he goes he carries himself as a Indian,Hindu ,or a bharath vaasi.
    Independence day is fast approaching.Let us forget all these diversities ,stand united and sing Sare Jahase Accha,ye Hindustan hey hamara....

    "India is a Hindu country. It is Hindustan. All Indians in Hindustan are Hindus, including I - I am a Christian Hindu," D'Souza said.

    This guy is confused and he needs help. Broadly those who lived in the lands south of Hindu Kush mountains (which is modern day Afghanistan) were called Hindu by the Persians and Hindi by the Arabs

    But what I find funny is he is calling himself a "Christian Hindu"? A Christian is a person whose subscribes to the ideology as detailed in the 73 books collectively call the Bible, and if he claims India is a Hindu country and he is a Christian Hindu then he is mistaken. Agreed most Christians descend from Hindu forefathers so do most of the Sikhs & Muslims.

    I recall a Sikh journalist on the lighter side saying after the anti Sikh riots, when attempts were made to portray the Sikhs as Hindus and so they were termed as Hindus, but with long hair. So the joke was if Sikh’s were Hindus with long hair, then would you call the Muslims as “Hindus who are circumcised”? LOL. LOL

    The word Hind or Hindu is nothing to do with 'Sanatha Varna Dharma". Varna dharma practising is divided into 4 group Brahmins, Kshthriya, Vyashya and shudra (called upper caste) who forms only 15% of population of India. Dalits, BC's, Muslims, Christians and other minority are Non-Varna Dharma practising religion. It is therefore BJP & RSS combine won't get votes 80% votes. The Non-Upper caste who majority are secular in nature

    Hinduism is a Sanscrathi. It's not a religion.
    Similar to, all Indians are called in Gulf as Hindis. Some People believe that those who follow Sanatana Dharma are only Hindus. So followers of Sanathana Dharma, Christians, Muslims, Sikh, Budhists, Jain all are Hindus bcz they reside in a country named Hindustan. Dhavalkar is a fool he must have faith in his religion.

    Dear All ,
    It doesn’t matter if you call yourself from muglisthan or Hindustan or any other, but I see just because of the word hindu how lovely the people started to show their tolerance towards certain people belonging to this religious system thinking it only represents the majority !!

    India’s age-old philosophy as expounded in Hindu scriptures called Upanishad is “sarva dharma samabhava”(You will not find these golden words other than here), that means it was secular in its stand before the word SECULAR originated and that is because of its so called people who were residing across river Indus(sindhu)!
    Further!! The word hindu is misused and misunderstood by most of the people who have no idea(including intellectuals/ & some politicians ) how the word originated , apart from this they try to use Hindu or Hindutva with communal overtones either to promote or oppose some ideology or party and to the rest of the world Hindu word is referred to a set of people belonging to definite religious system(also known as Hinduism).
    The fact is that these words "Hindu"(is neither a Sanskrit word nor is this word found in any of o the native dialects. and languages of this country ) and word "India" have foreign origin. Also there is no reference of the word "hindu" in the Ancient Vedic Scriptures.
    So it should be noted that word hindu is not a religious word, and if we go by the original definition then any person living in the land beyond the river Indus is a Hindu and whatever religion he or she practices is Hinduism!
    The word “ Hindu” itself is a secular word, so it denotes any religion that are practiced in the Indian subcontinent.
    I strictly believe India was secular and india will be secular unless this hindu word majority remains!!

    All Hindu's residing in Europe, Australia, America are then Christian Hindu!

    Mr. Jaison, so silly question!!
    It proves you could not understand the subject or many comments here .!! The question you asked arises from your mean mentality.
    Please read all the comments once again & try to understand. Some Gentlemen over here written rightly, all our Ancestors are Hindus as per history but now we follow different religion. Nothing wrong in this. Truth is truth.
    And the answer for your question is simple…….Ancestors of Hindu’s living in Western countries are not Christians !!!!!!
    Hope you are capable of understanding this answer.
    Please try to live as an Indian unitedly rather than following westerners.
    I have a suggestion here ……
    Why our Politicians never think of changing our Country’s name from India to BHARATHDESH which was our original name.
    Why we want still as INDIA which is named by Westerner.
    We got independence in 1947 and later India was divided into 4 portions, as Pakistan, Bangladesh & Srilanka. But still our portion is called as INDIA.
    A small country like Cylone can change to their Original name as Srilanka after independence.
    Why can’t India can change to our original name as Bharathdesh.
    There are many Indians in the world even though there are not from our India ( Bharathdesh / Hindustan). South Americans, East Indians etc.
    That’s why we are called as bloody Indians….!!!
    I am sure no one will call bloody Bharathdeshies??

    Just as we don't distinguish Sunni-Shia..in Gulf, or so & we just call Arabs, so we are called Hindustani/Hindus. Almost all of people's ancestors very very long back where in Hindus in religion term also. They might have been converted over period by infulence of Islamic rulers or British. Even Pakistan people considers as a Hindustani no matter whatever religion you belong to.

    Nepal proclaimed it is Hindu Rashtra! How did it made any difference?
    Those people living in Gulf Countries, we call them Arbees.
    Same way, as many people rightly commented, those lived beyond sindhu river were Sindu's / Hindu's.

    FYI of Mr Francis D'Souza, the word Hindustan is derived from the Old Persian word Hindu, which in turn is derived from Sindhu, the Sanskrit name for the Indus River. Old Persian refers to the people living beyond the Indus as Hindu. This combined with the suffix "sthan", meaning "place" gets us Hindustan, as the land on the other side (from Persia) of the Indus. The term came into common use under the rule of the Mughals who referred to their dominion, centred on Delhi, as 'Hindustan'
    So, no, it does not refer to the Hindu religion

    What is the meaning of the word Hindu ? And how we got this name ? Anybody knows about this? With out knowing the meaning or origin of Hindu or Hinduism, it is foolishness,presenting such a statement.

    When the Europeans came to India they traveled thru old Afghan mountain range Hundukush and they saw tribal people staying around and called them Hindus and its meaning is NOMAD ( uncivilized )and
    after hundreds of years this name came to India and unfortunately Indians are known as now,Hindus..We know that so-many names contributed in India by the British and Europeans.

    The fact that our-history is wrongly interpreted and there was no named religion in India and later transformed many civilized societies in to different religions
    as a result of these transformation had given birth for many languages and accordingly changes happened in various sets of people Later..

    Humanity is first and humility captivate the world. All religions are same and converging into same direction that is one God and people call different names. Modi is not a God to convert India as Hindu nation. Only 38% people voted him and still 62% are against to him. If he try to tarnish the India's secular credentials people show him a way that he will not come to power once again!!

    This text is from internet:

    The word Hindu is derived (through Persian) from the Sanskrit word Sindhu, the historic local name for the Indus River in the northwestern part of the Indian subcontinent (modern day Pakistan and Northern India).[2][a] According to Gavin Flood, "The actual term Hindu first occurs as a Persian geographical term for the people who lived beyond the river Indus (Sanskrit: Sindhu)".[2] The term Hindu then was a geographical term and did not refer to a religion

    Thus Hindu is a 'way of life' unique to Hindustanis.

    The concept of 'Hindu Nation' is hidden agenda of BJP and its affiliated organizations. People have voted them for prosperity and peace and not for establishing Hindu Nation. This is a good chance for BJP to take all communities along and to be a credible alternative for Congress. If they fail to do so, they will never come to power again in their lifetime.

    What is secular state/Country: secular state/country also claims to treat all its citizens equally regardless of religion, and claims to avoid preferential treatment for a citizen from a particular religion/non religion over other religions/non-religion.

    Secular states do not have a state religion (established religion) or equivalent.

    Dear Prof.Shanker Bhat, Manipal
    I agree..!!
    But
    Mr Prof ,would you mind elaborating the word SECULAR here, I mean Like the word most of the people here want to know whether the word secularism used in Western countries has been used in Indian context???
    India’s age-old philosophy as expounded in Hindu scriptures called Upanishad is “sarva dharma samabhava”(You will not find these golden words other than here), that means it was secular in its stand before the word SECULAR originated and that is because of its so called people who were residing across river Indus(sindhu)!
    Prof FYKI ,
    The word hindu is misused and misunderstood by most of the people who have no idea(including intellectuals/ & some politicians ) how the word originated , apart from this they try to use Hindu or Hindutva with communal overtones either to promote or oppose some ideology or party and to the rest of the world Hindu word is referred to a set of people belonging to definite religious system(also known as Hinduism).
    The fact is that these words "Hindu"(is neither a Sanskrit word nor is this word found in any of o the native dialects. and languages of this country ) and word "India" have foreign origin. Also there is no reference of the word "hindu" in the Ancient Vedic Scriptures.
    So it should be noted that word hindu is not a religious word, and if we go by the original definition then any person living in the land beyond the river Indus is a Hindu and whatever religion he or she practices is Hinduism!
    The word “ Hindu” itself is a secular word, so it denotes any religion that are practiced in the Indian subcontinent.
    “Yad bhavam tad bhavati,”.. “Sarvey Jana Sukhino Bhavanthu”.. “Vasudhaiva kutumbakam”
    Dhanyavad.

    In one way, its congress won last election not RSS backed BJP, because for the first time in the history of Indian politics we could see BJP asking votes in the name of development, they didn’t have the guts to ask votes based on Hinduism.

    With reference to your above comment, India is a multi-cultured nation (country).There are Hindus, Muslims, Christians, Sikhs, Buddhists and many other communities and religions that collectively are a part of India. This doesn't mean in anyway that all Indians are Hindus. Please think before you make a comment like that... This could stir-up a huge religious conflict in what you say.
    Your name is Francis D'souza, and I believe you are a Christian, and a Christian is a Christian and NOT a hindu and CANNOT be a hindu.
    Please do your research in finding the "Correct" meaning of Hindustan.
    Ever since the BJP government has come to power there has been instances of religion taking the centre stage which has never been the case in the prior years with different governments.
    If religion is respected and kept out of politics, it would make India a lot better place. It would rather be sensible to focus all the energy and time in making India a better place to live in.

    I look forward to see your comment.

    Noel Fernandez,
    A Proud Indian

    When Elections come politicians Promise A Lot, after getting elected they try to divert peoples attention by airing these silly things to save their chair.
    Development which you promised need more attention than creating nuisance by silly statements as diversionary tactic.
    Hindu is one who sees & worships God in his every Creation.
    Other major religions believe or worship only the CREATOR.
    If these politicians understand this difference then there won't be anymore foot in the mouth statements or clarifications in future.
