Indians believe in "Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam" and "Sarbamangala", so the Indian secularism is a result of Indian civilisation. But now the situation is that an MLA of AIUDF Aminul Islam, can question the existence of Maa Kamakhya Mandir. Kamakhya Mandir was there before the 15th generation of Aurangzeb, which is as true as the Sun and the Moon.
Guwahati: India is always a "Hindu Rashtra" (Hindu nation). Who read history know that India has been a Hindu Rashtra and Hindu civilisation for 5000 years. It has been accepted by all historians and scholars worldwide that this is a Hindu civilisation. I am just memorising the scholar's version, which I have been reading from my childhood, Assam chief minister Dr. Himanta Biswa Sarma said this on Friday (December 10) evening to the media on the sideline of Shahid Divas organised by the state government in Guwahati. I think nobody has to have a doubt in mind that India is a Hindu civilisation.
The constitution of India was adopted only in 1947, but before that, for 5000 years, India was a Hindu civilisation. It is the Indian civilisation that believes in " Sarva Dharma Sambhav". In the 'Bommai' case, the supreme court of India has stated that India by nature is secular. It was late prime minister Indira Gandhi, who included the word secular, Dr. Sarma added. He further said that Indians believe in "Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam" and "Sarbamangala", so the Indian secularism is a result of Indian civilisation. But now, the situation is that an MLA of AIUDF Aminul Islam, can question the existence of Maa Kamakhya Mandir. Dr. Sarma said that Kamakhya Mandir was there before the 15th generation of Aurangzeb, which is as true as the Sun and Moon. Our fight is not against any religion, and it is against the aggression on our civilisation. He further stated he is not trying to be a leader of Hindutva. He is just learning the means of Hindutva, which is a way of living life.
"What I am doing is my duty as the chief minister of the state. People of Assam always want to see an encroachment-free Dhalpur, so I did it. The Assamese people did not forget the killing of an Assamese youth in Dhalpur. We have shown it to the world by the eviction of Dhalpur. We want to make Dhalpur an example of the self rights of Assamese people, which will remind us of the supreme sacrifices of thirteen youth in 1983 during Assam agitation," Dr. Sarma added.
