# 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???
For three thousand years this nation had a whole class of self proclaimed scholars called Brahmins whose only job according to some invisible texture of questionable existence and authority was to read, write and gather knowledge and get free stuff in return.
But inspite of all that long period and all that indolence and escape from work they didn’t wrote a single text that could be taught in any university of this planet.
All they did was eating, pooping, polluting the society with superstition and making sure that noone else gets access to education.
I mean if your only job was to acquire knowledge you could have come up with at least something meaningful in three millennia but I guess getting fed for doing nothing was rather more pressing concern! And right now we are seeing an increased number of such brahmanist coming out of closet showing blatant support for the right wing communal fascism as they still fantasize of going back to those happy old barbaric dark ages when their ancestors were paid for being a burden on society.
I always thought there was sth disturbing about the whole Pakistani chaiwala becoming internet sensation thing, which was way beyond objectifiying human body (that happens all the time).
The very fact that a blue eyed fair skinned ‘chaiwala’ has become an eye candy of Bourgeois and petty Bourgeois women in India and Pak is the direct reflection of the colonial classiest mindset prevailing in both the countries that is used to believing that a ‘chiwala’ has to be ugly, he has to be dark skinned and he must be black of eyes.
This mass hysteria is not for a good looking chaiwala but is an expression of disbelief. Disbelief towards the assumption that someone who does physical labour must be ugly and must be black.
What does such colonial mindset says about us as a free nation??
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!
We’re living in a neoliberal world where one can’t get proper education in govt schools or treatment in govt hospitals, in fact every govt facility is viewed with disgust and suspicion. From education to health to public transportation to job market we all can witness an increasing withdrawal of State.
If we have to pay the private players for everything that a welfare state promises to do for its citizens why are we asked to pay taxes to the state in the first place? To buy bombs and bullets that are being used against its own masses??
This state hegemony is an interesting phemenon, on one hand it believes in gradual withdrawal of its influence from all spheres of a citizen’s welfare while on the other hand it demands from its citizens a complete physical and psychological surrender towards its rule.
It’s the masses under the state subjugation that are forced to grow food, join army, fight wars, pay taxes and keep the machinery running and the same masses are asked to prove their loyalty from time to time.
This is done by maintain the delusion that state is feeding and protecting the masses not the other way round. The same state that is being run by the Bourgeois class that is buying colonies in poor countries and political class whose children are settled abroad.
In the second world war 3 million died in the great Bengal famine but today each year more than 3 million are starved to death in other words we are having a Bengal holocaust every year. We live in a nation where 70℅ people live on less than $2 a day and the state expects these people can afford expensive educational and medical facilities of the private sectors. The Indian state is just replicating the American model undermining the fact that India is still a third world nation.
After all this the state expects us to remain loyal to a bunch of oligarchs and fund our own oppression. State is nothing but the coldest of all cold monsters, everything it says is a lie and everything it has is stolen.
Let the Bourgeois class bear the burden of nationalist pride, life is already a war for the commoners.
In a nation of 1.25 billion it has now become not only acceptable but also sth to be celebrated that the richest Indian now owns almost 20% of the the national assets.
We can notice a whole new breed of middle class emerging that is not only indifferent towards the poor and spiteful towards it’s own class but also has a God like admiration towards their rulers or the rich.
Everyone nowadays will tell you that those bourgeoisie somehow deserve their fair. Did Vija Mallya deserved his?
From where is this apathy and acceptance of inequality creeping in our society? Well, it’s coming from the caste system of India that legitimizes inequality, the class system of Europe that romanticizes it and the idea of American dream that claims handwork is the mantra for success which actually means that those who didn’t succeed weren’t working hard enough.
In a neoliberal world where ancestral wealth is still the largest source of financial capital, the only guarantee to inequality, and ‘deserving’ privileges is choosing the right parents at the time of birth.
Birth is the only and biggest lottery but it’s certainly not a qualification to be celebrated!
If media channels can just pick a random viral post and turn it into news without verification or accountability, what right such institutions have to call themselves the fourth pillar of democracy. They are rather a hoax selling machine.
What’s the point of looking towards such mediums for truth of they start behaving like spam box of your email or the ‘udti udti khabar’ of tea point??
You see somewhere in time media took responsibility of every word they published and even apologised for errors they made but now the roles have reversed and now that responsibility lies us that what kinda news we are allowing to reach us.
And meanwhile media houses can telecast anything from any unverified source in the name of news. The Dhaka flood was one such example. I guess noone is sure of the color of water not even those who aired it!
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!!!
