Is it OK for Narendra Modi to proclaim publicly that he is a "Hindu nationalist", while being a… by @abhinandanpatil
Answer by Abhinandan Patil:
There is a Hyderabadi Biriyani Hotel near my home owned by Muslims. The owner and the workers are proud that they follow Islam. Their biriyanis are mouth watering, just like the one in the picture.
Adjacent to the Biriyani house, there is a bakery named "Joseph Bakers". The owner is a Christian and is proud to be one. They make some wonderful chocolate cakes.
After you walk ten minutes from the bakery, you'd find "Ramakant Sweets" owned by a proud traditional Hindu family. I can't resist eating their Jalebis.
You see a huge building in the backdrop. What is that? Oh, it's the MST Hotel owned by conglomerates. It has everything, right from biriyanis to jalebis to cakes, but you know, they taste fine, but not that great!
Now, what is my concern? Will I go and eat from the big hotel just because the others appear to be proud of their religion?
No. For me the outcome matters. Biriyani House have proved that they prepare amazing biriyanis, Joseph's cakes are out of the world and Ramkant's Jalebis are just the perfect sweet to end your meal.
So, if Modi focuses on development of the country and well being of its people, him being a proud Hindu doesn't matter.
