Hindus had decided to go secular post independence: Subramanian Swamy

New Delhi: Quite vocal about his views on Hindutva, senior BJP leader and a man of letters Subramanian Swamy on Saturday said that the decision to be secular after India attained independence was of Hindus.

Swamy, whom millions follow on Twitter for his hard-hitting and fiery remarks, took to the social-networking site once again and wrote, “The decision to be secular post 1947 was Hindu decision. British Parliament made three partitions: Hindu India, Muslim Pakistan, and 600 kingdoms.”

His remarks have come at a time when debates over secularism and nationalism are being held in every nook and cranny of the country.
