      Hindu Nationalism

    • C.

      Territorial Nationalism

    • D.

      Cultural Nationalism

    Correct Answer
    C. Territorial Nationalism
    Explanation
    The Two Nation theory, which proposed the division of India into separate Hindu and Muslim nations, could not fascinate the Hindus and the British because they believed in Territorial Nationalism. Territorial Nationalism emphasizes the unity and identity of a nation based on geographical boundaries rather than religious or cultural differences. Both Hindus and the British believed in a unified India that encompassed all religious and cultural groups, rather than dividing the country along religious lines. Therefore, they did not support the Two Nation theory and instead advocated for a united India based on territorial nationalism.
