What does Hindu nationalism mean to you and has the current Government of India started an irreversible tide in the way people are starting to view their own identity, and also that of India?

Much can be said about the philosophy of religious nationalism, however in this podcast, we delve head first into the human experience behind it. 

In today’s podcast Rajan travels to Canada to meet with Ron Banerjee. Ron is well-known within the country for his public displays of what many have stated as right wing activities. He is a self-proclaimed Hindu Nationalist and pulls no punches on his beliefs and what he feels is his custodian duty. He is an advisor to Rise Canada and Canadian Hindu Advocacy. 

Ron has an open discussion on why he believes in Hindu nationalism, what it means to be a Hindu for him and his take on the recent events in Bangladesh.  We also look deeper into his own psychology and how he views Canadian identity. 

The views expressed in this podcast are that of Ron Banerjee and aspects of this discussion you may find disturbing.

I believe for a better world to exist, it starts with better open discussions. If you have a topic you would like us to cover, simply let us know in the comments below or reach the team through the contact page on our website.


About the Global Indian Series:

My name is Rajan Nazran Chief Explorer for the Global Indian Series, the official platform for people of Indian origin (PIO), because let’s face it, we are everywhere!

For almost 15 years we have travelled across the globe covering 58 countries to date whilst exploring the kaleidoscope of our remarkable 50 shades of brown community.

Voyaging to the edges of the Amazon, facing Ebola in West Africa, being held hostage in Eastern Europe, tapping rubber in Malaysia, drinking chai with Heads of State and sharing laughter with local fishermen – I have been there, looking for us!

Our purpose is simple, to build a living encyclopaedia of the human experience of the community and a safe mooring ground for open discussions, whether you are an NRI, Indian Diaspora, person of Indian origin (PIO) or a fan of South Asian anthropology, what we do is bring people and communities together.

We do this by plunging into the human experience of being a person of Indian origin (PIO), taking a second look at the countries we now call home and tackling the conversations we need to know more about.

Through our range of award-winning original content (print, podcasts, events and TV) and fascinating discussions, our impactful stories and platforms have spearheaded national and international conversations that have brought people together.  Our work is featured in global brands including The Indian Express through to the CNBC network.
