I see a strange obstinacy among the Brahmanist Hindu fascists to declare Comrade Kanhaiya “anti national”!!!!!!
In spite of being clear that the videos presented as the proof of Kanhaiya’s sedition were doctored or even after listening to the speeches of Kanaiya and Umar only a person with a particular mindset can be so adamant to declare Kanhaiya a traitor!
Only a person who’s very existence depends upon Brahmanism, fascism, communalism, feudalism and capitalism; only a person who can’t differentiate between Nation and Modi; only a person who can’t understand the difference between democracy and theocracy; only a person who believes Manusmriti to be the constitution; only a person who believes Nagpur to be the parliament of India can show such pigheadedness or cunning!!
After all it takes a special kinda imbecility to say Kanhaiya is traitor but Mallya is not or Umar is terrorist but not the Govt that’s bombing its own people in Jharkhand!!
To admire Nazism and Zionism simultaneously would be referred to as the highest form of paradox anywhere in the world!
But only when you have no knowledge about both. Only when you don’t care for what these two school of thoughts stand for. Only when you’re in love with the fascism, apartheid, racial supremacy and fundamentalism advocated by these two isms you can openly idolize Hitler while supporting the Zionism of Israel.
Any rational being might call this an oxymoron by it’s sth very acceptable among the far right Hindu fascists of India.
Its not because the Hindutva right has any sympathy or even understanding of Nazism or Zionism but because the fascist fundamentals of both these murderous ideologies resonate with their ideology of Hindutva/Brahmanism i.e. practice of xenophobia, casteism, untouchability, and apartheid, preservation of feudal system and structural violence, belief in racial supremacy and subjugation of Dalits and women!
Okay the army men take orders from their bosses only to execute them without question because the duty of a soldier is to obey not question! So how can a machinery that is prohibited to question or even think can be made the yardstick for measuring the patriotism level of a civilian when the duty of patriot is to protect his country from his govt??
Because as far as I know sth called military has been involved in nearly every war every genocide every human conflict and every genocidal rape throughout the human history. And we must not forget our founding fathers and mothers were some of the most defiant, rational and thinking beings of their times.
As long as there are borders as long as there are standing armies as long as there is the concept of us and them the world will never know peace. So I believe pioneers of a warless world will be the youths who will abstain themselves from military service!
As Rabindranath Tagore said I will not buy glass for the price of diamonds, and I will never allow patriotism to triumph over humanity. So let’s just choose humanity over those narrow domestic walls as there are many bourgeois elites who are ready to sacrifice millions of poor for their quarrels so lets just allow those rich fight their own wars!
Let’s love humans not chunks of land!!
What Donald Trump did for America Modi has done the same for India. The presidential campaign of Trump has exposed the racist, islamophobic, sexist, xenophobic mindset of an average upper middle class, white, American male which is comparable to what the new Indian govt has done with the Indian society.
Back here in India one of the biggest achievements of this far right Govt other than establishing a minimum common unity amongst the Left, Ambedkarite, Feminist, secular and progressive forces of the nation is playing a major role in exposing the deeply casteist, insanely fanatic, Islamophobic, anti Dalit, anti minority, xenophobic, feudal, sexist, anti rational mindset of an average educated privileged caste males of the Indian society that feels suffocated and tormented living under a democracy.
Surprisingly this class is often well educated petty bourgeois that dreams of one day joining the ranks of its oppressors. This class is afraid of democracy, fears diversity, despises freedom that is inclusive, is hero worshiper, feels oppressed for having lost their right to oppress and has a deep contempt for a welfare state and words like socialism and secularism. When this govt took this particular section of the society blatantly unleashed its venom of hatred and frustration in the most brutal and the bitterest way; not only through words but also through actions!!!!!!!!!!
From a 10 year old child bride to a loose replica of a Hindu Goddess the Mother India has represented everything that is reactionary, bigoted, anti reformist and fanatically conservative about the Indian society as since the beginning she happened to be the Mother of all those reactionaries who rigorously opposed social reforms but somehow were against the British raj.
The book Mother India by Katherine Mayo would rather give you a better Idea about India than a white skinned, curvy, beautiful, deity like woman covered with gold and gems, wearing an expensive saree and holding a saffron flag!
Can this be the mother of a country having the largest population of poor? Can this be the mother of a country of brown skinned people? Can this be the mother of a nation where every second child is malnourished? Can this be the mother of a country that still practices untouchability, forced slavery and feudal oppression? Can this be the mother of a nation that has 15 million women in prostitution? Can this be the mother of a nation that houses a militant patriarchal society where men respect dead female idols more than females in flesh and blood?
Is anyone ready to accept an exhausted poor, old, fragile, brown skinned woman as their Mother India? A weak skinny woman wearing a tattered saree, holding a tricolour and not adorned with golden ornaments but enslaved with iron chains of oppression?
In 1947 our founding fathers and mothers freed her from the chains of political oppression but she’s still held by the chains of economic and social oppression. Are we ready to free her? But first of all are we even ready to acknowledge the fact that our Mother India is enslaved by the chains of social and economic injustice???????????????
