New Delhi, India (BBN)-India, Pakistan and Bangladesh will reunite to form Akhand Bharat, or “undivided India”, said General Secretary of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Ram Madhav in an interview to Al Jazeera.
Referring to the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), Madhav said, “The RSS still believes that one day these parts, which have for historical reasons separated only 60 years ago, will again, through popular goodwill, come together and Akhand Bharat will be created. As an RSS member I also hold onto that view, reports the IBN Live.”
However, he added that it “does not mean we wage war on any country, [or that] we annex any country. Without war, through popular consent, it can happen.”
Recently, the BJP has been facing the ire over allgetions of rising number of cases of intolerance in the country.
Several artists and writers have returned their awards protesting over the same.
Commenting on the allegations of rising intolerance in the country, Madhav termed it as a ploy “to defame the government and in turn to defame the image of India.”
