About the Show

Welcome to a thought-provoking episode of the Global Indian Podcast, where we delve into the complex concept of Hindu nationalism and its impact on the perception of identity, both personal and national. Chief Explorer, Rajan Nazran, engages in a candid conversation with Ron Banerjee, a controversial figure known for his beliefs as a Hindu nationalist.

In this podcast, we aim to explore the human experience behind religious nationalism and encourage open discussion on a topic that may trigger diverse sentiments. Ron Banerjee firmly asserts that India is fundamentally a Hindu nation, emphasising how Hindu spiritual practices like meditation and yoga are practised worldwide without due acknowledgement of their Hindu origins.

Throughout the conversation, Ron delves into his belief that Hindus refrain from violence unless provoked or sensing imminent danger. While he does not generally advocate violence, he argues for its use in certain situations. Additionally, he contends that Hinduism does not promote aggressive religious conversions.

Ron also raises concerns about the loss of meaning in Liberalism, where words don’t align with actions, and he expresses his view on the perceived Hinduphobia in Western media. He shares his thoughts on the challenges of preserving free speech in Canada.

Please approach this podcast with an open mind and a willingness to engage in discussions that may lead to a deeper understanding of diverse perspectives. We invite you to explore this new human experience and consider the complexities surrounding Hindu nationalism in contemporary times.
