Defending the comments of his cabinet colleague Deepak Dhavalikar who said that Modi could make the country a ‘Hindu nation’, Francis D’Souza told reporters: “It was always a Hindu nation and will always be a Hindu nation. You don’t have to create a Hindu nation.”

D’Souza, one of the senior most minority members of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in Goa, said that he considered himself a “Christian Hindu”.

“India is a Hindu country. It is Hindustan. All Indians in Hindustan are Hindus, including I – I am a Christian Hindu,” D’Souza said.

Dhavalikar triggered a national controversy Thursday while speaking during a motion congratulating Narendra Modi on becoming prime minister.

“If we all support it and we stand by Narendra Modi systematically, then I feel a Hindu Rashtra will be established,” Dhavalikar said.

D’Souza insisted that Dhavalikar had no “clarity in his mind” because India was already a Hindu nation.
