De Omnibus Dubitandum!
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!
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!!!!!!!!!!
A Hindu being lynched and a man lynched for being Hindu are two different things!
Former is a crime of passion while later is a crime of hate!
One is murdered by people while the other is murdered by an ideology!
One the end in itself while other is the means to the end!
One destroys life while the other ignites fire that may engulf cities, states and countries!
But it’s shameful that few haters are adamant to prove crime of passion as crime of hate and crime of hate as crime of passion!
For what? Few votes? To polarize the society? To gain political might? To get appreciation of their bosses??
If anything needs to be shut down it’s the cyber cells of these fascist elements!!
They say why ask questions that have existed since the dawn of time?
They ask why question us why not our predecessors?
We thought duty of patriot was
To protect its country from its govt
They turned it upside down and ordered us that
Duty of a patriot is
To protect the govt from the country!
They say why question when you can comply?
Why reason when you can just kill?
Why educate yourself when you can school yourself?
Why think at all when you can indoctrinate yourself?
Why live for humanity when you can die for cow?
Why fight the culture of oppression when you can fight for the culture?
Why go to college when unlettered goons can go to the parliament?
Why respect women when you can worship mother India?
Why be a human when you can be a fanatic?
Why be a rationalist when you can be a nationalist?
Whyy??? Isn’t fascism good enough for you????
While the progressive nationalists of jnu displayed their open discontent towards the social evils of poverty and brahmanism the fake nationalism of hindutava fascists was shaken to the core by four slogans!
When Sanghis protested against jnu they deemed an entire university anti national, compared the girls of jnu with whores and threatened Kanhaiya and his friends with murder and lynching!
But when jnu protested against the sanghis and their hollow ideology of hindutava nationalism they simply commenced special classes on nation and nationalism!
While jnu was having discourse on social evils confronting the nation the sanghis were busy collecting condoms in the jnu campus.
When Kanhaiya was granted bail he talked about the threats of neo-fascism, meaning of Aazadi and treating the right wingers as political opponents rather than enemies!
After Kanhaiya’s fiery speech the rightists reacted by asking the price of his jacket and demeaning his relation with his female comrade! When this wasn’t enough they put a bounty of 15 L on Kanhaiya’s head!!!
I m telling this because if you’re a supporter of Kanhaiya and a protagonist of constitution and personal liberty you must know what kind of sick people will oppose you and what is the level of their intellect. And it’s up to you to decide if these people with such sick, perverse and criminal mindset even worthy of your words and time!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The JNU students decided to have a discourse on why people like Afzal turn towards extremism and it becomes an act of sedition!! Well if you’re really a nationalist and not just some right wing prick then where was this outrage when the RSS pigs were constructing temples for Godse who too was executed by the same judiciary?? Why no one’s nationalism kicked in when for the last seven decades these Hindu terrorists have been disrespecting Gandhi, proudly boasting their involvement in his assassination, rejecting the National flag and being hostile to the very idea of constitution and democracy??
Did it ever cross your minds that you people should come up with sth like#ShutDownRSS?? Because if it didn’t then your outrage over this event doesn’t count. And tbh we do not need any certificate of nationalism from the traitors of RSS or its supporters. Why is being skeptical about Godse’s crime okay but talking about the hanging of Afzal sedition??
Many human rights group want capital punishment to be abolished so are they anti national?? Many people are skeptical of Afzal and yakub’s hanging are they all anti national?? Many people want the war crimes of Indian army to be investigated does that make them anti national?? Kashmiris want AFSPA to be removed and troops withdrawn from Kashmir does that makes them anti national?? Is every Kashmiri anti-national??
Does placing the humanity above Govt makes you anti national?? When did freedom of expression became sedition? All these fanatics, these politicians, these fundamentalists, these bhakts, these jingoists simply afraid of a handful of students armed with nothing but ideas about democracy and freedom?? Truth lies with the dissents not the crowd!! No society can flourish without an unrestricted exchange of ideas! Afterall what’s the use of having a University if it doesn’t allow the critical analysis of the common conscience of the society.
Whom are these people trying to follow? Is it US or China or just Pakistan and Taliban??
