Grand Mufti of Syria calls for Akhand Bharat

The RSS vision of an Akhand Bharat has an unlikely supporter, the Grand Mufti of Syria, Dr Ahmad Badr Al-Din Hassoun. The Mufti feels

"You need to bring back the idea of pre-independence India. An Indian continent which for over a thousand years was home to all civilisations -- Hindus, Buddhists, Muslims, Jews, Christians and Sikhs.

He believes that the barriers between India, Pakistan and Bangladesh are unnatural and should be removed. The holy man cites the example of Europe, where boundary lines are becoming irrelevant.

Well Hindus Buddhists for sure (and sikhs are later reformists in Hinduism so they are not separate or different - they are our own kith and kin). Yes, and muslims and christians too, but these 2 must stop aggression against Hindu civilization first.
