The positivity of hate...

  1. The hate speech by a member of a non-hindu community that has caught the media attention now is, in my opinion a back cloud with a silver lining... 
  2. Why? Because all those gentlemen who are raging against hindus are only serving to drive more and more hindus into the arms of hardliners; all that is being achieved is the firming up of Hindu opinion. That is admittedly worrying, since the hindu was never a fundamentalist; he/she was always pacifist. It is sad to see the firming up of opinion in a very secular religion; but it is happening, and is a decided cause of worry. I am a moderate; and am feeling extremely worried by this disturbing trend in our religion. The greater worry is that this is happening apparently as a response to - shall we say - external stimuli. Why cannot the Government manifest itself strongly against pro-religion fundamentalists- of any religion? It is the inaction by the Government that is actually exacerbating the people, and driving them into the hardliners. This is a decided reason to worry; for let me be extremely frank: I, too, in my weaker moments, have felt thankful to the Pro-Hindu hardliners; there has been in the back of my mind a definite feeling of comfort and safety. 
  3. This safety is not supposed to be provided by the extra-governmental forces; it is to be provided by the Government! Inaction in every sphere is the hallmark of politics today. These politicians should realise that their inaction is only going to exacerbate the problem and further, drive their vote bank into the arms of the BJP-RSS combine! They are quite literally shooting themselves in the foot; Take me, for example. I was once pro-congress; now am apolitical and support Aam Aadmi Party; how long do you think before even a confirmed pacifist and moderate like me also becomes Pro-BJP? It is simplly speaking stupid electoral strategy! Wake up, man! (I have nothing against the BJP; I am not claiming BJP to be communal. It has in fact proven itself to be an able ruler. The point above is merely underlining the impact on the congress vote-bank)
  4. It is also highlighting another aspect of governmental apathy; yet again - it is the court acting on a public appeal that has come to our rescue.
  5. It has also provided another piece of evidence that in reality only the courts are running India; governments are doing practically nothing.
  6. If today I feel confident in my nation and its ability to prosper, it is only because of the large presence of the Armed Forces, The Media and The Courts. A heartfelt thanks to all of you... (and of course, the indomitable Indian spirit! Nothing can keep us down... people have tried and failed. We always bounce back)
  7. This feeling of safety is not about the hate speech- it is about overall life; for ex, my brother-in-law highlighted his Vehicle transfer case in newpapers - and got his registration within days! Without these above 3, things would have been far more difficult... thanks for being there! Any number of crimes and scams would have gone undetected...


Thank you The Armed Forces, The Courts of India... and of course, despite its many shortcomings, The Media...
