A press release issued by the MPCC Media department said that dinner invitation issued to the President of India in the G20 meeting was addressed as ‘President of Bharat’.
“Official usage of ‘Bharat’ signifies that the saffron party continues to pursue its Hindutva policy of creation of a Hindu kingdom and the RSS, two days back, said that the term India should be changed to ‘Bharat’, the press release said, adding that national identity is not the personal property of the BJP.
The MPCC accused the BJP-led NDA government at the centre headed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi of having an agenda to distort Indian history and to make the country a Hindu kingdom which the Congress party termed a divisive policy, extremely dangerous for the Christian community across India.
“In the ethnic violence in our neighbouring Manipur state, ruled by the BJP, our kindred Christian brothers are the worst hit and who suffered the most,” the press release said.
The MPCC alleged that the BJP is trying to impose ‘One Nation, One Election’ as well as the Uniform Civil Code (UCC) which will culminate into imposition of ‘One Nation, One Religion’ and ‘One Nation, One Language’, which are the main agenda of the saffron party.
Only the Congress can ensure freedom of religion, protection of cultural identifications, the statement added.
