No exaggeration in calling an Indian living abroad a 'Hindu': Union Minister

Union Minister Kalraj Mishra Friday said there is no exaggeration if a person living in "Hindustan" is referred to as a "Hindu" abroad.

Lucknow: Union Minister Kalraj Mishra Friday said there is no exaggeration if a person living in "Hindustan" is referred to as a "Hindu" abroad.

"There is no exaggeration if a person living in Hindustan is referred to as a Hindu abroad...A person going out is called a Hindu Muslim or Hindu Christian meaning a person living in Hindustan," Mishra told PTI.

Elaborating on this, Mishra cited the High Courts and Supreme Court, which in their judgements, "have mentioned about the 2000-year-old ancient quotes and said that Hinduism is a way of life...A philosophy."

"Hinduism is a nationality ...It does not discriminate on caste and biradari (community) and if anyone levels any charges, they need to study more," Mishra said.
