New Delhi, Oct 23: RSS general secretary Dattatreya Hosabale on Friday said that Hindutva is neither Left nor Right and its essence is ''integral humanism''.
Speaking at the launch of RSS leader Ram Madhav's book, ''The Hindutva Paradigm: Integral Humanism and Quest for a Non-Western Worldview'', Hosabale said that cultural cohesion and cultural nationalism are essential for the longevity of a nation.
Any forcible division or unification of nations, he said, does not sustain.
''The world had gone to Left, or was forced to go Left and now the situation is such that the world is moving towards the Right, so that it's at the centre. That is what Hindutva is all about -- neither Left nor Right,'' Hosabale said.
