New Delhi: Former Vice President of the country Hamid Ansari has expressed concern over the current situation in the country. He said that today the country seems to be under threat from such ideologies which try to divide the country on the basis of the imaginary category of 'we and that'. The Vice President openly expressed his opinion on this issue.
Hamid Ansari made a big statement during this time. He said that even before the Corona epidemic, the country had fallen victim to two other epidemics - 'religious bigotry' and 'aggressive nationalism'. The former Vice President said that while the love of nation is a more positive concept than these two, it is militarily and culturally defensible. Former Vice President Hamid Ansari said this on the occasion of the digital release of the new book 'The Battle of Belonging' by Congress leader Shashi Tharoor.
Ansari further said that in a short span of four years, India has come from the basic perspective of a liberal nationalism to a new political vision of cultural nationalism which has firmly entered the public domain. On the occasion of the book release, former Jammu and Kashmir CM Farooq Abdullah said that in 1947 we had an opportunity to go with Pakistan, but my father and others thought that the principle of two-nation was not right for us.
