The thing about constructive criticism is that it has to come from inside of the system to have a positive impact or else it is often dismissed as allegations and hate speech.
De Omnibus Dubitandum!
People who get orgasmic joy over the idea of a Hindu fascist state should at least come forward and tell us what they really mean by the word “Hindu.”
Because obviously for such fanatics the Keralites who worship King Bali and eat beef are not Hindus, the Dalits, the aboriginals and the OBCs are not Hindus, women who wish to do anything other than breeding children are not Hindus, the Northeasterns are not Hindus as they have a different culture, Hindus that are communists or liberals or secular or pluralistic are again not Hindus, Hindus who disagree with RSS are also not Hindus and so on and so forth.
So, who exactly is Hindu in this cauldron of castes and ethnic groups haunted by Gods?
Oh wait! This hocus pocus of a Hindu Rashtra is all about creating a fascist nepotistic theocracy for the rich male Brahmans! One by one, everyone else will be erased.
So before supporting this rabid idea of Hindu State please know that there is a very high probability that it might not include you!
The so called cow vigilantly Brahman Banya gang again assaulted four dalits for skinning dead animals because they claim to believe cow is their mother!!
Since Hindutva ideology is more about hating the imagined “others” than loving their own people, it has selected it’s imagined “mother” very carefully!
These people know Muslims have been eating beef since generations, these people know sections of dalits have been skinning dead animals since ages and hence they can easily use the cow excuse to target both dalits and Muslims at the same time!
All this brutality all this savagery inflicted by these Saffron lynch mob is not for the love of their Cow mommy but for the deep contempt and hatred they carry within their hearts towards the dalits, the aboriginals, the OBCs and the Muslims!
If they really love their Cow mamma so bad why can’t they just do sth similar to the beef seller bjp leader and riot accuse Sangeet Som??
If this is not Hindu terrorism then what else is??
Ever since this far right Hindutva fascist govt came to power in 2014 who ate what became a bigger question that who ate how much!!
Last year the father of an air force employee was brutally lynched by a saffron terror faction over the suspicion of having consumed beef!
What’s interesting is that instead of showing any interest to nab those fanatics the state machinery showed more enthusiasm about knowing the nature of meat stored in the fridge of the victim.
It’s hilarious that it took them almost a year to find out what kind of meat was stored in the fridge which not only reveals the impotency of Indian police and judicial system but also throws some light on why it takes 20 years to get justice in India!
Anyways, the apologists of Hinduta fascism will tell you these are rarest of the rare events carried out by “fringe elements.”
But what’s really scary and the matter of biggest concern is the fact that these are not fringe elements and its proof is all around us. When senior leaders of this fascist Govt openly call for a final battle against minorities by swearing to carry out such attacks all across the nation, when union ministers in the govt show open support for these savages and when politician turned saints make appeals for a Muslim free India and starting a civil war it would be foolish to assume such terror strikes are random events carried out by fringe elements!
All this simply indicates that these fanatics who carry out lynching, murders and rapes in the name of cow and the degraded Indian culture aren’t goons or fringe elements but storm troopers of the fascists in power or rather state sponsored Saffron terrorists!!
After all when a saffron terror faction openly threatens the police and state with riots and mass murders in the city if no legal action is taken against the victim’s family and those fanatics sitting in the center shamelessly say that the victim won’t have had consumed the beef alone simply shows to what extent this fascist govt supports it’s sponsored terrorists!
Frankly speaking I have never seen such kind of insane polarization in my entire life. Everyone acts insane or seems to have abandoned all reasons! Never before fascism revealed itself so shamelessly and so blatantly.
Gandhi once said I’d never kill a cow for a man just like I’d not kill a man for a cow! It’s clearly the fight between Hind Swaraj of Gandhi and Hindutva of the British stooge Savarkar. It’s a fight between those who know how to think and those who know how to hate. And its battleground will be schools, colleges, Universities and our very mind.
The choices we make today will decide the future of this country. We can either become a welfare state like any advanced nation or we can become Hindu Talibans. We can either take a giant leap towards a better world of Tagore’s poems or we can go back to the dark ages of theocracy and feudalism.
All depends on what we chose to think today!
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!
