At it's face value it might sound dictatorial, but in the hind-sight the lack of laws that enforce Indian-ness among all religious minorities (specially Muslims and Christians) has created problems.
The Indian -ness that i know is about ''unity in diversity'', about humanity,kindness,love for all , multiculturalism , i did not know that i have to declare myself as a person having Hindu ancestry first and start reading the Gita in order to have that Indian -ness .India is hundreds of kingdoms united in 1947, and before that it wasn't a country. So there is no such thing as Indian-ness especially if you r comparing the far North-East to the far South and the far North-West there are immense cultural and racial differences and linguistic too. Most central Indians in Gujarat , Mumbai all act very similar though - and usually fit the cultural stereotypes of other Indians as depicted in Western Television. But obviously a Sikh Kashmiri guy is not going to act anything the same as a Tamil South Indian guy - they will look, talk and act completely different. India is just a very new country made 60 plus years ago - it's stupid saying all Indians are the same, because it is the same as saying if France, Italy, and Spain all joined and became one country - and culturally through languages, looks, and acting they are all different.
Indianess of the RSS is declaration that Hindus are the real Indians and the rest must live under their symp
