You're looking at it too literally.
It's just a political ploy to keep the people united against the same "enemy:" Muslims.
And who's the savoir? BJP, of course!
You've to understand that without patriotism and Hinduism, these people are deeply divided, both spiritually and politically, and I'm not even counting the Muslim population. Hinduism itself has basically hundreds of branches with almost half a billion gods, goddesses, deities, and whatnot.
How can you expect such a diverse group of people to stay united under the same banner, especially with casteism and colorism - if not even classism?
They HAVE to peddle this patriotic BS, otherwise Hindus will scatter like sheep!
That's probably part of the reason but I think there is more to it. There is some desire in the hearts of bhakts to achieve Akhand Bharat at least in the geographic form of Mauryan empire. If it was only a ploy to keep India together, there would be no need to suppress the Muslims of India.
