    India: Land of Milk and Honey....:)

    Let me show you a mirror; take a look at it carefully.

    Here is one of the most respected Indian journalists (Dilip DSouza on Rediff) setting out how your own Hindu fanatic leaders are about to vapourise millions of Indians by starting a war in order to divert attention from domestic public revulsion relating to fascism, thuggry, killings, corruption .......

    "Just by using that trump card. And it has just one word on it. "Pakistan".

    Preferably, war with Pakistan.

    Yes, our political class has learned one lesson very well. Whenever they are faced with a tide of public revulsion over something else they have perpetrated, or stolen, or plain misgoverned, all they need do is mutter about the evil of, the threat from, Pakistan. Suddenly, we will drop the revulsion and prepare ourselves for the war they say we have to fight. The very same fellows who destroy hospitals and steal cars: let them mention Pakistan and we are ready to swallow every last phony word that drips from their lips."

    " So it is, this time. For weeks, unending killing in Gujarat dominated the news. The slimy effort to rationalise the massacre of hundreds of innocent Indians, the lack of will and desire to halt the bloodshed, disgusted us nearly as much as the bloodshed itself did. It had come to the point that there were actually political calculations being made about a possible alternative government. Somebody even sounded out that old stalwart, Jyoti Basu, about whether he'd be willing to head one. Now I hardly think a Basu-led coalition can, or would want to, give us better governance than even the bumbling NDA. But given how Modi and Vajpayee and Advani and their cadres reacted to the murders in Gujarat, given their cadres' complicity in the killing, they deserve no less than to be thrown out of office. Regardless of what kind of misbehaving misfits wait to take their place. "

    "In that climate of disgust and disillusionment with Vajpayee and gang, a tragedy happened in Jammu.
    So Jammu happened, and suddenly Vajpayee and gang had their trump card out. War on Pakistan! they shouted, and within minutes all their fellow politicians, whatever their party, their followers, and the rest of us had fallen in line. Dropping our various wrangles with the government, we all began bellowing the same belligerent theme. "

    Dilip goes on to rip-open a little the belly of the Hindu-Fundamentalist Beast (BJP/RSS). What do you think he finds? Well see for yourself:

    "When a leader of a party called the Shiv Sena, Anand Dighe, died in the Singhania Hospital in Thane at the end of August 2001, the crowd of party faithful that had gathered "spontaneously" expressed their "grief". How? They destroyed the ground floor of the hospital. They looted and burned a Raymond showroom nearby, then burned a godown opposite. They stole the petrol from several ambulances, overturned them and set them on fire. They smashed over 30 cars in the hospital compound, and three buses outside. They assaulted several journalists; two from the TV programme Aaj Tak escaped death only by falling to the ground and feigning it. They chased nurses and patients all over the building, trying to batter down the doors they hid fearfully behind. One patient who had to run for his life was suffering from renal failure and had actually been in the bed adjacent to Dighe in the ICU. "I had given up hope," his son told Mid-Day. "I thought I would lose my father."

    The hospital, or what they left of it, has since closed."

    And this is how the members of Indian ruling party behaved at the Taj Mahal: by pissing all over the lawns and harrasing female toursits. How could the barbarians be expected to appreciate one of the greatest monuments ever built by mankind (and that by a Muslim too). Dilip Goes on:

    "Last October, BJP faithful from all over the country gathered in Agra to commemorate their party's 50th birthday. As part of the back-slapping bonhomie, Sports Minister Uma Bharati told the congregation that unlike the Congress, whose workers were known for being 'rowdy', the BJP's workers were 'disciplined'. Her words so inspired the BJP's youth wing that, in their thousands, they set off to visit the Taj Mahal and went -- no other word quite fits -- berserk. They plucked flowers and uprooted plants, rinsed their mouths and bathed in the fountains, heckled honeymooners and foreign women tourists, and urinated publicly all over the lawns. "By the time the rampage was over," wrote Deepshikha Ghosh for on October 14, "the Taj and its surroundings resembled one vast garbage heap."

    Fortunately, the Taj Mahal has not closed."

    A Faith that cannot survive collision with the truth is not worth many regrets.

    Well, who said there isn't SOME sanity on their side of the border...
