    Selective Outrage

    If there is one thing that is abused the maximum in India it has to be the word ‘secularism’. I have said this many times in the past and I am not going to repeat why I feel so. But that is hardly a problem for me. After all the naked display of secularism or the pseudo version of it for decades reduced the most communal party of India, the INC, to rubbles. Good that they haven’t learned an ounce post 2014 debacle which in a way is a positive sign for all those who are interested to see a “Congress Muqt Bharat”. Trust me; the party with a retard at the helm is competing with time to make it irrelevant at the earliest. Nothing can be better news for India than this at the present context.

    Congress and all its rabid offshoots who sell communalism in the name of secularism are always in the lookout for an opportunity to divide the nation further. A united and literate India is a death nail for these merchants of hate and divisiveness. That is perhaps why, these selfsame faggots always shout divide on the slightest of opportunity. It serves two purposes. First – they get the joy of dividing India further and Second – they get this sense of satisfaction of still being relevant though their filthy idea of India was savagely dealt with by the voters in 2014. To help them further we have our ever so eager media which leaves no stones unturned to defame the nation for personal gain. By design, the flag bearers of secularism and our media try to look the other way for everything that isn’t a launch vehicle of their agendas. That is perhaps why they never talk about Sikh massacre, Kashmiri Pundit exodus or the poor 57 people including infants who were charred alive in Savarmati Express. But come to 2002 Gujarat riots or anything that can show Hindus in bad light, these morons jump out in open at once and start crying wolf. This has become a trend in India for some time. For decades, a highly communal party is supported by our sold out media so that they can continue selling more fear. And how it is achieved? By misusing a single English word – secularism.

    The recent Dadri lynching is a classic case where it is showcased ever so brilliantly on how everything related to religious divide can be attributed to Narendra Modi, BJP and Hindus as if national harmony is the sole responsibility of the Hindus. I had said this earlier – no person should die for what he eats or drinks. When an irate mob attacked Akhlakh Ahemad and killed him for slaughtering a cow, no words can defend that horrific incident. If at all there is a crime on the part of Akhlakh, our laws should have dealt with that. At no point it gives liberty to public at large to decide on the quantum of punishment, so much so that they end up lynching a man. That is bad, gruesome, uncivilized and horrible. But is it the first time that such crimes happened for slaughtering a cow? I can at least cite six instances during recent 10 year Congress rule where similar crimes happened. Did anyone hear our media going berserk for weeks together and doing every bit to defame the ruling dispensation? Did anyone find every politician worth of his salt doing overtime to castigate the PM? I haven’t at least. It compels me now to ask – what is so special with Dadri lynching that all seem to be losing their sleep? And more precisely, how this incident can be used as a broad brush to paint the entire nation with religious bigotry and term the society turning intolerant?

    It is not only the communal Congress or the pimp media that is trying to cash in the murky situation. Even the so called self-proclaimed intellectuals are jumping into the bandwagon of Modi bashing. The entire Congress ecosystem looks like doing overtime to blame Modi for every bit of mishappening in India. The ecosystem of frauds has gone so deep that, we now have the intellectuals who are falling over each other to return one or other of their government awards. Seriously, where on earth you would find so many idiots lining up to defame their own democratically elected government? This silly trend of award returning was started by a certain Naintara Shegal. You don’t know who this NS is? Don’t bother too much, she isn’t worth knowing. This niece of Nehru suddenly got that urge to return her Sahitya Academy award in protest against the rising religious intolerance in the nation. According to her, the India that she and many fraud intellectuals like her has long preserved is getting decimated post the win of Narendra Modi. How convenient and routine of these scoundrels to associate everything with NaMo. She is the same fraud who never had problems while receiving the award two years after the Sikh massacre and four years after the genocide of Kashmiri Pundits. In 1986, it was a smiling NS who received the award. She never had her conscience kick her at all the wrong places back then. Now suddenly, this ugly child from the Congress ecosystem found everything going haywire. The intellectual in NS never bothered to go through the stats and compare the communal violence happened during the Congress regime with that of NDA’s. She just wanted to shout wolf so that her agenda to protect the filthy scotch circuit that routinely feasts on dead to continue. The same NS was OK when a clueless Rajiv Gandhi made a mess in Sahabanoo case that eventually took the fundamental rights from all the Muslim women forever in India while today the same NS can’t sleep at night.

    But I know why she can’t sleep. It is not because her heart cries for the oppressed; that is hardly her concerns. It is because she finds her non-deserving entitlements vanishing rapidly from all the illegitimate fountains that Congress had installed. These are the clowns who were routinely domesticated by Congress party for their political gain. Crorers of tax payer money was regularly wasted to sprinkle these leeches with free doles. The Lutynes Delhi circuit that used to absolve these free dwellers with illicit arrack and fraudulent money to bark for them has stopped. People like NS are finding themselves irrelevant and useless now; not that they were ever useful though. No more invitations to government organized litfets or five star stays on tax payer’s money. None is providing them business class tickets to fly to New York and shop Tampons like Teesta Setelvad used to do during her hay days. No one now cares to donate lakhs to their NGOs in the name of public service so that the hawks like NS can live a life of luxury doing nothing. For years together non-deserving and mediocre people like NS are hailed with all possible government awards and emoluments. This free wastage of public money was designed with a purpose. The purpose was to accumulate as many frauds to the Congress ecosystem. After all, Congress would always require these morons to bark whenever needed. This is the same reason why wastes like Teesta, Barkha, Rajdeep were conferred with Padma awards. The national awards which should have been protected of its values were freely distributed to Congress doormats like it is no one’s business. Among the trio mentioned above, Teesta is a proven fraud with arrest warrants floating against her while Barkha was seen actively doing pimping for the Congress government with help from certified pimps like Radia. Least we talk about the street thug Rajdeep Sardesai is better.

    For ages, Congress used these national awards and recognitions to buy these free loaders from market. Just take a note of these Sahitya awardees and see the time when they were conferred with the award. All would point you to the rotten Congress ecosystem. When I say, all are non-deserving; I say it with some conviction. If their writings or poems are any kind of pointer then all of them appear below mediocre. The same Sachidananda Mishra who received Rs 5 lakhs from UP government as early as August 2015 is now ready to return his Sahitya award. And nobody need us remind, where Dadri is situated. Then why not return that 5 Lakh as well? It shouldn't be too tough for a conscience seeker like Mr. Mishra. But then, our fraud intellectuals are hypocrites. For 2002 Modi must be castigated as law and order is a state subject but for Dadri Akhislesh government can’t be held responsible. Kalburgi was murdered in Karnataka but the Congress government in the state is never questioned. These intellectuals seem to have two different yardsticks and they use it as per their convenience. If this is not a well preserved and stinking ecosystem then I am not sure what it is.

    By the way, why am I remembering Chanakya today? If there is unrest among the criminals and the intellectuals of the state then the King must be doing something right, the great man said. It’s a different matter that, in this case, the criminals and the so called intellectuals are the two sides of the same human being.

    Post Script:

    Thought, I should share it with you so that you can understand the Congress ecosystem better. Look how all the anti Hindu factions are connected with each other, forming a loving and big Mafia family
