or Hindutva literally means Hinduness - a way of life or a state of mind that is based on
the cultural and spiritual ethos based on the spiritual systems that evolved from India.
Hindutva is a Philosophy like Communism or
Socialism. The difference is that whereas communism and socialism are materialistic
philosophies intended to secure economic welfare of individuals, Hindutva is a spiritual
plus economic philosophy founded and developed from ancient times in India for securing
the all round happiness of all individuals irrespective of religion of individuals. The
stress in this philosophy both on the ruler and the ruled is the performance of duty and
to conform to a code of conduct. The vast body of proper code of conduct in every sphere
of human activity such as personal, social, political was called "Dharma".
