They want democracy in India but theocracy in Saudi Arabia.
They want secularism in Israel but brutal Islamism in Pakistan.
They want Constitution as long as it allows them to practice Sharia.
They want EU to take in a million more refugees but are okay when Saudi Arabia turns them down.
They want Israel to cease to exist but are okay with Saudis butchering Yemenis.
They condemn minority witch hunt in the name of love jihad but cry buckets when Tunisian govt allows Muslim women to marry non-Muslim men.
Sorry but no kind of left unity or any unity is possible with such MuSanghis who are nothing but fascists waiting for their turn.
Afterall secularism can’t be a one-way traffic.
And the fact that left, liberal and progressive forces have collaborated with them is the reason why RSS and Hindu fascists were able to successfully vilify the word secularism and turn it into a laughing stock.
The thing about majoritarianism and communal fascism is that it gives no fuck about how many Kurds are being persecuted in Iran, Iraq or Turkey or how many Yemenis are being butchered by Saudi Arabia or how many Dalits and aboriginals are massacred by the Brahmanists or how many Shias and Ahmadiyyas are targeted by Sunnis in Pakistan or even how many refugees fleeing from ISIS have been turned down by Saudi Arabia and Qatar.
It’s so-called humanitarian sentiments are stirred only and only when the Christian majority west invades some Islamist nation of Middle East or when Burmese deem Rohingyas stateless or when some Muslim man marries a Dalit girl or when some Islamist terrorist attack some temple/hotel or when Jews steal Palestinian lands or when army kills some militant in Kashmir and of course when EU fails to accommodate enough refugees even after sheltering millions before.
The working principle of this ideology is simple: Please allow us to quietly cleanse our kind of all impurities but if someone of other race/religion does to our people what we are already doing to them, it’s an assault on our community.
For a third world nation like India that has yet to accept its caste question, accepting xenophobia and race problem is obviously a distant dream.
Basically, this land never had any problem:
It never had any caste problem but Gandhi always remained a Baniya and Shivaji a Maratha.
It never had a race problem but somehow this entire brown country believes in quackery of fairness creams claiming to magically transform brown skin into white.
It never had a gender problem although we still have to acknowledge marital rapes and the question of honor killing.
It never had the problem of homophobia but homosexuality is criminalized.
It never had a problem of xenophobia but you can be assaulted in Bombay for simply being a North India and in Delhi for being a Northeastern.
So most probably the only pressing concern for this nation is beef and Romeo!
No one said Kashmiri Pundits’ exodus,
before we talked about military war crimes!
No one said 1984 before 2002!
No one said income based reservation,
before there was caste based reservation!
No one said poor brahmins before they heard
about abolishment of manual scavenging!
No one said men’s right before we had feminism!
No one said emergency of 1975 before
intellectuals criticised this rising social intolerance!
The point is they don’t give a damn about any of those things.
They just wish to legitimise sufferings using sufferings
