# Hindus not the Muslims are original inhabitants of India.
# We were enslaved by Muslims a thousand years back.
# For one thousand years we have been under foreign subjugation.
# Let’s kill Muslims in Bhagalpur and Godhra Riots.
# Lets form a Hindu state.
Azad Kashmir Movement:
# Muslims not the Hindus are true Kashmiris.
# We were enslaved by the Mughals in Fifteen hundred sth.
# For five hundred we have been under foreign subjugation.
# Let’s kill and ignite an ethnic cleansing of Kashmiri Hindus in the valley.
# Lets form an Islamic state or merge with Pak.
Is there any difference???
Too much hullabaloo is being made by the regressive Left over Kashmir’s ‘right to self determination’.
Okay let’s have a plebiscite provided the ‘entire’ Kashmiri masses are allowed to participate. And by ‘entire’ I mean the current population along with the ones who were hounded out from the valley in 90’s.
Plus can anyone convince us that this whole hocus pocus of Azad Kashmir is not a Radical Islamist project but a simple movement of marginalised nationality?
Because the ethnic cleansing of 90s and the slogans currently being raised in the valley strongly suggest that this whole idea of Azad Kashmir is all about creation of another Islamic state and has got nothing to do with “Kashmiriat, Jahmuriat or even Insaniat.”
So if Azad Kashmir simply a morbid dream of Islamist fundamentalists, why should anyone care? Religious fanaticism has made the world bleed enough.
Sympathising with those who dream of an Azad Kashmir is just like sympathising with those who dream of a Hindu Rashtra.
Azad Kashmir has no place for Hindus and Hindu Rashtra has no place for non Brahmins.
Both are morbid dreams of communal fascists!
It’s easy to be a Hindu and criticise Islam.
It’s easy to be an Indian and talk about Baluchistan.
It’s easy to be an American and bash Israel.
It’s easy to be a man and criticise Feminism.
It’s easy to be a communist and criticise capitalism.
It’s difficult to be a Hindu and criticise Hinduism.
It’s difficult to be a Muslim and criticise Islam.
It’s difficult to be an Indian and talk about Kashmir.
It’s difficult to be a Pakistani and talk about Baluchistan.
It’s difficult to be an American and criticise Americanism.
It’s difficult to be a man and criticise patriarchy.
It’s difficult to be a communist and criticise the left.
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!
It took the collective effort of both black and white folks to abolish slavery in US or apartheid in South Africa so here in India the whole idea of excluding the privileged castes from the unity of oppressed movement sounds a bit absurd as this idea itself appears casteist.
Yes I agree with the idea of BAPSA that we need more leaders coming out from the oppressed sections and that the communist movement in India has been hijacked by the reactionary Brahmanist forces. But how can one have monopoly over Ambedkar and Phule only on the basis of caste?
Because it’s also true that many former dalit leaders are now standing with the Brahmanist fascists of RSS-BJP and one can’t deny the fact that more dalits and indigenous people have died fighting under the red banner than under the blue banner.
Left Ambedkarite Feminism is the need of the hour to combat the rising threat of Communal Fascism in India!
Okay I’m not getting it:
Is it so that the Kashmiris want to succeed from India because they believe that being a Muslim majority region they must join Pakistan or form an independent state or it’s because they are sick of the brutal military occupation or the broken promise of plebiscite makes them feel betrayed ??
As far as I know military was deployed in Kashmir only after the rise of militancy and Kashmiri Pundits’ exodus and this demand for Azad Kashmir is much older.
I firmly stand with the left wing’s argument of demilitarisation of Indian state and we all can tell that Military brutalities will only give birth to more Burhan Wanis!
But if left wants to stop Hindu extremism as it wants India to remain a democracy why is the extreme left supporting the cause of Azad Kashmir which appears purely a communal program? It’s hypocrisy!
Secularism can’t be a one way traffic!
We know we got one of the best constitution of the world. All we are asking is to implement it in Kashmir, in Manipur, in Nagaland, in red corridors and in every militarised zone of India!!!
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??

And I will never be a party to this mass maniac hysteria!
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!
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!
