    A serious question and not an attempt of mockery.

    Alot is writen about Hindu nationalism in the german media recently because of your new primeminister.

    But I would like to (if you have the time and dont mind) have an Indian explain it to me.

    Hindu nationalism can be termed as giving a cunniglus to a cow and drinking its pee

    Why don't you share a few articles in German media, so that we can see what is written there?

    I think the BJP would describe itself as simply "Nationalist" without any religious prefix. So Hindu Nationalist is a term used by foreigners, not so much in India.

    Anyway let's compare this term with "Christian Nationalist" in USA:

    Searching the term Hindu Nationalist in Google News, the overwhelming majority of articles are from foreign news outlets.

    It's a convenient term used by foreigners because they have failed to box in Hinduism into the limited sphere of religion.

    Remember when stories were spread in the 1700's in America about native Indians being cannibals and inhuman, only so that they can be massacred, converted and shunted into ghettos. Their attempts at defending their folk and way of life were misconstrued as attacks on the whites requiring violent retributions..... Replace the 'cannibals and inhuman' remarks with the epithet of 'Hindu nationalism' and you will get a picture of what it really means.

    If a whole lot has been written about the PM and Hindu nationalism in Germany, is it because of the undeclared penchant for your lost glory that the Swastika tried to bring to Germany that Deutschland is uber alles?

    Modi however has a different agenda. It is called Sab ke Vikas, Sab ke Sath.

    Now, that sure would be dangerous for western interest, since they would love India to remain divisive, so that foreigners can manipulate gullible west aping Indians, as also tinker with India's policies as they have done directly, indirectly and through NGOs.

    Mainly that Modris agenda is one of shrinking government, increasing the Indian army and opening India more for trade and buisness, so that he is a liberterian.

    Nothing about bein in any way antimuslim or antiwestern, those are just cliches.

    Is hindu nationalism liberterian?

    What you just did, is called a strawman.

    Acusing me of saying something that I did not even say.

    Not really a strawman.

    Actually, showing your the mirror.

    I have years of internet experience and I can see what's up.

    Remember this:

    Dude, relax. The OP is asking a legitimate question. Most people in the west are concerned that Hindu nationalism could become another form of talibanization. the world already has a huge problem with taliban and its progeny (ISIS etc.). The last thing the world needs is another version of the Taliban, Hindu taliban. Hence, the western world has legitimate concerns.

    I am not a Dude, old boy.

    The OP is BOGUS, just as all your other OPs in threads that you initiated.

    You are the real Taliban.
