Bhagwat on Sunday said that 'cultural identity of all Indians is Hindutva.' He even went on to say that Hindutva is a way of life and that Hindus could be of any religion worshipping any God or not worshipping at all.
This comment didn't go down well with many across the political fraternity who slammed Bhagwat for the same.
Meanwhile Congress on Monday sharpened its attack on Bhagwat saying that the 'RSS must read the Constitution.' "India is a multi cultural country," Congress leader Manish Tewari said. Tewari added that Mohan Bhagwat must read the Constitution.
"Words used by the framers of Constitution were India/ Bharat and not Hindustan." he said.
On the other hand, the Shiv Sena welcomed Bhagwat's statement saying: "Hindu is a culture and tradition, we welcome Mohan Bhagwat's statement."
