NEW DELHI: Senior RSS leader and patron of the RSS-affiliated Muslim Rashtriya Manch Indresh Kumar unfurled the National Flag at a Bohra madrassa in Nagpur on Monday. Speaking at another event in Nagpur on Sunday evening, Kumar had given a call for Akhand Bharat (united India) by bringing together those areas which had separated from India and urged the youth to take a vow to make it a reality. “No land should remain detached from Bharat. People should respect each and every inch of the nation’s land; only then will there will be love, peace, harmony in society, and people will work to re-unite the separated land.”

The issue of Akhand Bharat is controversial as it aims to bring back Pakistan and other neighbouring countries that are no longer part of India. Interestingly, an RSS-inclined body had organised the event on August 14, the Pakistani Independence Day.

Elaborating on his call for Akhand Bharat, Kumar said it was the British who dismembered India into smaller countries. “When the British started their rule, India was spread over 83 lakh sq km and when they left in 1947, the area shrunk to a mere 33 lakh sq km. Even after independence, 1.74 lakh sq km area of India is under occupation by China, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Myanmar,” he said. The country faced constant attacks from Huns, Kushans, Mughals, and British, he said. “Though the boundaries of Bharat have shrunk over the centuries, the country is still maintaining its own identity and cultural values,” he added.
