Markandey Katju is known for speaking his mind whether one likes it or not!Sanghis are no Hindus.
Sanghis is a term mostly used to identify supporters of RSS and BJP.
The retired Supreme Court judge in a blog titled ‘Sanghis are no Hindus’ said that those who claim to represent Hinduism are not true representatives!

Most Hindus, and most members of organizations and parties who claim to represent Hindus, have little or no idea of the great Hindu intellectualism of the past, and of the real great intellectual achievements of our ancestors ( see my blogs ‘ The real nature of BJP ‘, ‘ Did Rama and Pushpak Vimaana exist ? ‘), and instead make false boasts e.g. that there were atom bombs, guided missiles, aeroplanes etc in ancient India or that Hindus discovered head transplant and genetic engineering ( see my blogs ‘ Making us a laughing stock ‘, ‘ Mixing the true with the untrue ‘, ‘ A visit to Akshardham ‘, etc ).
Although I eat beef ( and pork ) and am an atheist, I am a strong champion of Sanskrit and the Hindu Nyaya philosophy, which represents the scientific outlook ( see my articles ‘ Sanskrit as a language of science ‘, ‘ Nyaya or Vedanta ? ‘, ‘ Indian philosophy ‘, etc on my blog justicekatju.blogspot.in as well as on facebook and online).
Thus, I am a real Hindu, rather than these so called Hindus, and organizations and parties which claim to represent Hindus, but really know little or nothing about Hinduism, but are only befooling the gullible and simpleton public to get their votes. They have nothing in their heads, but one thing in their hearts—hatred for minorities.
While replying to a question by a follower Markandey Katju said that he did not believe, as is being proclaimed, that Hinduism is Brahminism.
He said only ignorant people believe that. In reply to another question, Markandey Katju said that the Sanghis (see the screenshot of his comment above) be given’sour medicine’ or kadwi dawa to make the nation Sanghi free.
