Hindus are homogenous due to their common religion. Not all nations need to have a common ethnicity, language and ideology as a condition of existence. By that measure, the UK wouldn't exist-the Scots, Irish, Welsh and English are separate ethnicity and languages. Neither would Canada which has 2 official languages and hundreds of minor ones. France exists through a common language though there is no "French" ethnicity, France has been a melting pot of ethnicities for a thousand years.Hindus are not homogenous, not be race, not by ideology, not by language and not by culture. Let's not divert this thread
Nations define their nationalism on various grounds. For some, it is religion, for some, it is language, for some, it is ethnicity, and for some it is ideology. China's nationalism is based on her majority ethnicity, India's on her majority dharmic culture.
