Twitterati debate over the ‘Akhand Bharat’ painting in the new Parliament

Akhand Bharat painting in new parliament

The Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh refers to an Akhand Bharat as a “cultural concept,” and a painting in the new Parliament building that depicts the influence of ancient Indian philosophy in the area surrounding it went viral on social media on Sunday.

The painting in the new Parliament building, which Prime Minister Narendra Modi dedicated on Sunday, identifies significant historical kingdoms and cities and demonstrates the influence of ancient India on Taxila, which is now in modern-day Pakistan.

Pralhad Joshi, the minister for parliamentary affairs, stated on Twitter, “The resolve is clear: Akhand Bharat.”

Photos of the artworks inside the new Parliament House, featuring murals depicting ancient India, Chanakya, Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, B. R. Ambedkar, and the diversity of the nation’s cultures, were released by the BJP’s Karnataka branch.

The Karnataka BJP posted on its Twitter account that “it is a symbol of the vitality of our proud great civilisation.”

“Akhand Bharat in the New Congress. It stands for our strong and independent India, said Manoj Kotak, a Lok Sabha representative for Mumbai North-East, on Twitter.

Many Twitter users expressed support for the representation of “Akhand Bharat” in the new Parliament building and questioned whether it was the cause of the Opposition’s decision to skip the event.

“Our intention was to illustrate the impact of Indian philosophy in prehistoric times. It stretched from what is now Afghanistan in the northwest to South-East Asia, according to Adwaita Gadanayak, Director General of the National Gallery of Modern Art.
