Hindutva or Hindutva literally means Hinduness - a way of life or a state of mind that is based on the cultural and spiritual ethos based on the spiritual systems that evolved from India.

Hindutva is a Philosophy like Communism or Socialism. The difference is that whereas communism and socialism are materialistic philosophies intended to secure economic welfare of individuals, Hindutva is a spiritual plus economic philosophy founded and developed from ancient times in India for securing the all round happiness of all individuals irrespective of religion of individuals. The stress in this philosophy both on the ruler and the ruled is the performance of duty and to conform to a code of conduct. The vast body of proper code of conduct in every sphere of human activity such as personal, social, political was called "Dharma".
