Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi has described himself as a “Hindu nationalist” because he was a born Hindu.

“I am nationalist. I’m patriotic. Nothing is wrong. I am born Hindu. Nothing is wrong. So I’m a Hindu nationalist. So yes,you can say I’m a Hindu nationalist because I’m a born Hindu,” he told Reuters news agency in an interview in his official residence in Gandhinagar.

The Gujarat strongman was asked as to who was the “real Modi” – Hindu nationalist or a pro-business chief minister?

“As far as progressive,development,workaholic,whatever they say,this is what they are saying. So there’s no contradiction between the two. It’s one and the same image,” he said.
