Modian media with Arnabian acrobatics in full spate is threatening the very structure of India, as BJP’s conspiracy to destroy the country’s party centric parliamentary democracy by preempting the independence of its would be MPs in the Loksabha to elect, if they qualify, their leader for Prime Minister post on mandate 2014, Narendra Modi imposed on them speaking shamelessly of the fascist design.
When India is in such a very severe situation, the famous man of letters and humors – illustrious journalist Kushwant Singh – has passed away.
He was the first and the only one in Indian journalistic fraternity, who not only had penetrated into the early rampart of this fascist design when BJP’s Vajpayee was the Prime Minister, but also had given the greatest canonic contribution to the rise of citizen-consciousness for foiling that evil design, when the same Arnabian media was trying its mischievous best to denude the voters of their electoral consciousness, like the pimps chisel out dignity-consciousness of men who visit the red-light districts.
His book THE END OF INDIA (2003) had certainly made the greatest contribution to refusal of a fresh mandate to Vajpayee in 2004.
Here below I quote a few lines from the same book, as the same nasty design against India has been relaunched by BJP with the Modian Goebbels at its service. He had said:
“Apart from the assassination of the Mahatma, the RSS, VHP, BJP,and RSS offshoots like the Bajrang Dal and Vanavasi Kalyan Ashram have been implicated in various communal riots all over the country. The RSS ally Shiv Sena, with its leader Bal Thackeray, believes in ‘benign dictatorship’ for India. BJP leaders like the late Vijaya Raje Scindia were in favor of inhuman practices like sati and believed in the Hindu caste system. Every year, 14 February, St. Valentine’s Day, is marked by Shiv Sena sainiks going on a rampage all over the country. They burn buses, vandalize shops and generally make a nuisance of themselves protesting against what they call ‘cultural decadence’. They wish to protect a Hindu rastra from the evil influence of Western practices.
“We talk about the Taliban using religion to stifle the social and cultural lives of the people of Afghanistan. The same thing has been happening in our very homeland and we see it in every aspect of our daily life. It is not only the Shiv Sena that foams at the mouth about ‘Western influence’, Minister of State for Tourism and Cultural Affairs Bhavnaben Chikalia was recently considering banning discotheques in all government hotels. She felt it was ‘against our culture’ and a ‘bad influence on our Bharatiya sanskuti’. Some years ago, Sushma Swaraj made a hue and cry about Fashion Television, and the Sangh agitated all over the country against Deepa Mehta’s Fire and even succeeded in stopping Water, her next film, about the widows of Varanasi. These moral police have problems with books, with plays, with music and with art. In their effort to create a Hindu rastra, they have played up the Shah Bano case, using the Congress’s appeasement of the Muslim orthodoxy as their trump card. They have attempted to ‘rectify’ Muslim ‘wrongs‘ in history by rewriting it. They have tampered with textbooks in their efforts to ‘amend‘ Leftist readings and tried to reconstruct in the twenty-first century an imagined Hindu golden age.
“Every fascist regime needs communities and groups it can demonize in order to thrive. it starts with one grour or two. But it never ends there. A movement built on hate can only sustain itself by continually creating fear and strife. Those of us today who feel secured because we are not Muslims or Christians are living in a fool’s paradise. The Sangh is already targeting Leftist historians and Westernized youth. Tomorrow it will turn its hate on women who wear skirts, people who eat meat, drink liquor, watch foreign films, don’t go on annual pilgrimage to temples, use tooth paste instead of Danthmanjan, prefer allopathic doctors to vaids, kiss or shake hands in greeting instead of shouting ‘Jai Sri Ram….’ No one is safe. We must realize this if we hope to keep India alive”
With mediacracy in full spate, Kushwant silent, mandate 2014 is craving for these lines to rise up in our conscience, so that there shall be no end of India.
