A mural in India angers its neighbors

A mural in the new Indian Parliament building has angered neighboring countries, including Bangladesh, Nepal and Pakistan, for its meanings.

The mural embodies the ultra-nationalist concept of a “United Greater India”, which depicts an India comprising the Maldives, Sri Lanka, Bhutan*, Pakistan, Nepal and Bangladesh.

And the Indian Minister of Parliamentary Affairs, Pralhad Joshi, published a tweet that included the image of the mural, commenting on it, “The determination is clear – Akhand Bharat,” through his Twitter account.

While the Indian authorities said that the mural shows the ancient Mauryan Empire, and represents the period of prosperity of government directed to the people, and has nothing to do with politics.

In the same context, the Bangladeshi Minister of State for Foreign Affairs, Shahryar Alam, said that his ministry directed its mission in the Indian capital, New Delhi, to seek further clarification on this issue.

While the spokesman for the Pakistani Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Mumtaz Baloch, confirmed that his country has concerns about the mural, explaining that the unjustified insistence on (Akhand Bharat) is a manifestation of the revisionist and expansionist mentality that seeks to subjugate the identity and culture of religious minorities in India and not just neighboring countries. “.
