They are about 82% of the total population of India or approximately one billion people. India is a secular nation because Hindus are in majority in India. However, during the Congress rule, Hindus were persecuted and terrorized by anti-Hindu Congress Government. Shankaracharya was put in jail on false charges. Swamy Lakshmanand, a renowned Hindu monk was brutally murdered in Orissa. Swamy Aseemanand was framed in fake bomb blast cases and imprisoned. Sadhvi Pragya was tortured in jail and Col. Sawant incarcerated.
