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!
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!
You believe Indians aren’t racist because Gandhi Inspired Mandela and Martin Luther?? We are the worst kinda racist beings on this planet!
We look down on the Blacks but feel inferior to whites and that’s the most unique feature about the racism practiced in India which not only exposes our white inferiority complex but also our slave mindset.
This hypocritical obsession for white skin has become the fodder for the billion dollar quackery industry that claims to magically transform brown skin into white! Because of course being dark skinned is the worst crime a girl can commit in this country.
We don’t stop at this; we are racist towards our own people, for us every South Indian is from Africa, every northeastern girl is a Chinese whore and absolutely any hotel here would serve a European better than than any brown or black.
You wanna flatter any Indian just tell them they appear more European than Indian, you wanna hurt their ego just ask them if they are from Africa!
Can at least we now admit our racist, slave mindset of colonial era???
The country is at war
Only this time there is no Gandhi
Only Godses everywhere
No Ambedkar, no Bhagat Singh
Only Sarvarkars and Jinnahs!
Witness it yourself
Nation falling to fascist dogs
We choose humanity
They choose Modi and Godse!
We stand with the Constitution
they stand with the Manusmriti!
They say long live Mother India
We say long live the mothers of India!
They want an empowered nation
We want an empowered individual!!
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??
