Joey Das has written. “Respect for Pranab Mukherjee. He reached the RSS headquarters passing through the stone age and explained the true meaning of nationalism, by quoting those people whom he hated – Nehru and Gandhi.
The well-known journalist Sagarika Ghosh wrote, “Former President Pranab Mukherjee taught the lessons of constitutional nationalism that passed through diversity and took the message to saffron gad. And by whom, these words are quoted somewhere, given by Jawaharlal Nehru, the enemy of the Union. ”
Pranab said that our national identity will be in jeopardy with hate and intolerance. Jawaharlal Nehru had said that there is space for all kinds of diversity in Indian nationalism. All nationalities of India are contained in nationalism. There is no difference between caste, religion, race and language.
He said, “India’s nationalism is different from the European nation-state. India’s nationalism is in the Vasudhaiva family. There is a long process to achieve our national identity. There is complete space for linguistic and religious diversity. ”
