India today, seventy years after Independence, is facing a situation where some of the fundamental features of democracy are under serious threat.
The threat emanates from the ideological orientation of the present prime minister and of the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party.
No one thought it fit to point out that this was not the first time that the BJP had "breached" the Vindhyas. https:// ALSO: ] New India is newly minted; it has no history.
There are two aspects of this ideology that need to be noted here.
One is the assertion that India is a country of the Hindus and that the true future of India lies in making a Hindu Rashtra.
They have become a part of the grim reality of the daily lives of ordinary people, who have become perpetrators of intimidation and violence, as well as its victims.
Ordinary individuals pursuing their trade and professions have begun to group themselves in localities to preserve and protect what they think, following the Sangh Parivar, as Hindu and truly Indian.
Perceived threats to this Hindu India are then made targets of violence.
The targets are always ordinary Muslims, who are attacked and lynched.Only the criminals would be ruling the country and the constitution is great danger in such situations. ALSO: ] Denial of open space to Muslims in Gurugram to offer namaz by some groups formed in the name of Hinduism is a negation of Sarva Dharma Sambhav which remains the foundational pillar of our secularism enshrined in the Constitution and integral to the day-to-day life of people.So the BJP, the sole keeper of Indian culture, has to be picky about applying the basic principles of this culture on particular occasions.…https:// ALSO: ] It has been eleven years for Makkah Masjid bomb blast and subsequent police firing.…This very important case wherein the Hindutva terrorists were involved in carrying out blasts at various places in the country, all the agencies such as the police, the local state and the central government, the investigating agencies, the Prosecution and even Judiciary failed in providing justice even when all the strong pieces of evidence were present.
