This is what hindu Atal really means:
The country of India still goes by 3 names - "India" ,Bharat(Hindi) and Hindusthan" ( made of two words "Hindu" and Sthan=Place) . The word Hindutva is a sanskrit word having ties to Hindusthan.
Hindutva = Indianness (the state of being an Indian) = Bharatiyata. It's related to the culture of India, not a religion. It's the way of living in India (including food, clothing, art, science, customs, relationships, but excluding beliefs), not a way to God. So, even a Jain,Sikh, Buddhists, Christian or Muslim can practice Hindutva, i.e., live like an Indian. this Word is an Adjective ...describing way of Life . Playing Cricket is Indian way of Life ....Celebrating Holi,Diwali,Eid, Christmas,Gurparb....Is Indian way of Life...Enjoying Bollywood Music and Movies is Indian way of Life . fighting with Pollution is Indian way of Life ......Idli ,Dosa,Paani Puri,Paav Bhaaji and many more ....is Indian way of Life.
Asking to Reject “ Hindutava “ means . Asking to Reject Indian way of life .. for all Muslims , Sikhs , Jains , Buddhists , Hindus Christians of India ..
