Afzal Guru – “Please don’t compare me with Sarabjit. The issues are separate. My sympathies are with him, but my fight is for the Kashmir conflict. Now, I am not even seeking any clemency and have no objection to the government deciding my fate.” [link]

Afzal Guru has also said something that MF Hussain also said sometime back. Paraphrasing : The UPA govt. biggest problem is its indecision, only the NDA can come and hang me and in case of Hussain that only NDA can bring me back to the country.

Afzal Guru is pending hanging for attacking the parliament, all courts from the lowest to the Supreme have sentenced him to death. The BJP is asking for an early implementation of the courts order so that justice is done to the brave soldiers who died fighting to protect the parliament.

The congress is in a different mood altogether, they have probably taken to Arundhati Roy’s advice “What is the hurry to hang him?”. Hope Ms. Roy got her answer from the horses mouth. The BJP does have a point in demanding action, more prolonged the issue, more communal a turn it takes. Earlier it would and should have been a simple hanging of a terrorist. The congress has managed to invent more angles to the issue in trying to protect him. Many muslim organisations have come out against terror, no muslim organisation as such opposes his hanging. What is the hold up?

Alright, if we want to move towards a no-hanging sort of a culture, then make the case for that, but do not please give it a communal angle and try to justify the innocence of Mr. Guru like human rights activists. The left would be more than happy to save some face as being a part of the govt. and help you formulate this. But why the delay?

Congress justifies. “There is no authenticity of Afzal’s statement, whether the interview was done with permission, and whether he actually said it or not. Rajnath Singh should know that is a constitutional process and hence it will take time,” Congress spokesperson Jayanthi Natarajan said.

Jayanthi Natarajan is trying to rub the delay off on the process, which does not exist. There are no procedures pending. No papers have moved on the issue, all trials are over and its plain action which is pending which the congress will not take. And as the matter gathers dust, it will seem as if those who ask for the court order to be obeyed are communal rascals.

The problem with congress is that they end up giving a communal angle to each issue.


Presence of a minority worship place can force the entire projects to get changed. When it comes to Hindus’ worship place or beliefs, you know what happens.

….an ancient mosque on a tiny patch of 1,200 square feet of land right next to a runway has forced a redrawing of the entire Rs 2,000-crore map to upgrade Kolkata airport. An extra 25,000 square metres has to be acquired, crores have to be spent on building a detour and several high-rise buildings have to be compensated because they have to knock off their top floors in line with the new plan.

….this is exactly where the 117-year old Bankra mosque — where on an average 30 people offer prayers each day under tight security — lies, less than 100 feet from the north end of the shorter runway, Also, the walls of the mosque cannot withstand vibrations caused by aircraft landing or taking off.

Result: the Airports Authority of India has decided to extend the runway towards the southern side.

“This means we have to lease out more than 25,000 square metres of land to the state government for the diversion,” says another official of he AAI. The AAI will spend Rs 2 crore and the state government will provide Rs 3 crore. Also, an existing road, running from Kaikhali to Narayanpur (Rajarhat) will need to be diverted.

This, in all probability, …… will mean an extra Rs 20 crore, say officials.[link]

And we all know what is happening with the Rama Setu.

Here is where the majority fails to make its political presence felt and the parties are struggling to remain friendly to the minorities. And then within the minority this is a special minority because, all credit to them, they make enough noise that the government would listen, and they turn up to vote in large numbers too. None of the other minorities is as perturbed and perturbing, and none of the other minorities have a commission to alleviate poverty in their community.

Bottomline : If Hindus keep voting in the pathetically low numbers then they will remain a political minority with very little or no say in the governance. Even Hindu sympathising parties like the BJP will not be able to bring back balanced secularistic approach if the Hindus remain masochistic by design.

Minority politics will be taken to school when a chapter on the ‘marginalisation’ of Muslims is expected to be included in the NCERT textbooks.

To make students understand this phenomenon, the NCERT has introduced a chapter ‘Muslims and Marginalisation’ in the Class-VIII Social Sciences textbook which speaks about how the Muslims have not got proper benefit in the social and economic development in the country.

The chapter has also cited the findings of the study on Muslims’ status prepared by Justice Rajinder Sachar in 2006.

“Through the chapter, an effort has been made to explain how marginalisation is related to the feeling of prejudices and lack of ability. Marginalisation not only weakens the social status but also deprives the people of availing education and utilisation of resources,” said an NCERT official. [Link]

While the supposed saffronization of textbooks gave a lot of people sleepless nights, this seperatist move is a bigger dent on the secular Indian ethos. The inclusion of this chapter is absolutely unacceptable because this will give heed to a sense of victimisation and promote separatist and extremist tendencies. Such a chapter is on the lines of the Sachar committee recommendations to give separate preferences to the Muslims by secluding them from the mainstream. The NCERT official says that the feeling is related to prejudices and lack of ability, which are both untrue and very harmful for an impressionable child. What such a chapter would succeed to do will be to make people look at Muslims as a special group with specific advantages and disadvantages instead of looking at them as normal citizens.The inclusion of this chapter is unacceptable also because this will promote a feeling of separatist among other religion students. A poor student from any other religion studying this chapter would surely feel dejected. The goal of secular outlook to view all people equally would be heavily compromised by this move.

The political angle to this would be that development models for upliftment which actually benefit the minorities will be overtaken by the policy of giving doles to the minorities because of better print value. The Congress and other secular claimants would be the obvious beneficiaries.

Apart from the political angle to the issue, the claims themselves are refutable. The reasons for the backwardness of the Muslims is not because they are being prejudiced against, it is because the money to be spent for their welfare is being spent instead to send them for a pilgrimage or to “modernize” the primitive religious institutions called Madrassas, both of which do not help the Muslims actually [I know, the issue of Madrasa is highly debatable]. The other reason for the backwardness is that the Muslims are still left at the mercy of the clerics and their fatwas. Development of the nation and the inclusive growth for all poor, not only Muslims is a far better model and will help the Muslims better in the longer run.

To give such fodder to extremism and encourage separatism is against the nation’s interests and this modification to the textbook should be stalled. Free education for all, inclusive growth and development are the way forward.

This kind of education based on partial truth and divisive politics of religions is not acceptable. Let us not corrupt the young minds by our prejudices.

Mr. Shourie should probably not have asked — “What more is needed to stoke reaction?” The government has answered and the answer is not palatable to say in the least.

I wanted to go to the UPA party, and since I do not belong to any party which Congress can form a coalition with, I had to fight hard for it. Finally, the only condition imposed upon me was to come in Khadi. I also gained permission to make a toast to the 4 years bygone. I prepared hard and long to prepare a list of achievements that the UPA had made and wrote them in the book that I carried that day. Some of my points were appreciating the achievements and others were questioning others which were quoted.

  • About 65 killed and 200 injured in Rajasthan, complete apathy from the government. The government eluding all common sense and placing the Pakistan talks and the Bangladeshi athithi’s concern over that of the common people. And within 10 days of the blast, the UPA is celebrating 10 years in office. The question is, celebrating what? To that I toast.
  • Its not been over a month since the curtains were lifted on the PM trying to promote the nepotist interests of Mr. T R Baalu, the shipping minister. The defence was absolutely lame, saying that he was just forwarding the letters. The 9 letters sent in a matter of 5 months also contained reminders and mentioned the previous letter. The PM knows he is guilty of promoting private interests of some individuals in gross misuse of authority given to him but it does not matter because we know he only wants to impress his coalition partners. That is also why many people were called here, to that I toast.
  • Mr. Arjun Singh was being touted as a hero until he committed the sin of speaking against the congress albeit in a mild manner. The gentleman who introduced reservations had immense opportunities to listen to public will. The protests went on for about an year before the court had to step in and impose a stay. He could have done what the court has done now, without the matter having to go to the court at all. A batch of students could not reap the benefits because the Arjun Singh did not act democratically by listening to the legitimate concerns of the people. But that is still our biggest achievement, and to that I toast.
  • The UPA government formulated the Sachar committee to examine and remove the backwardness of the Muslim community in various jobs in India. While there are poor in all classes, the government is addressing only one community to tap its votes in a manner that is not appropriate in a secular nation. But whatever, I must congratulate you for your PM having spent sleepless nights over their plight. To your spirit of minority politics, I toast.
  • Our home minister you have given for 4 years, Mr. Patil who does not know that Afzal Guru is not a Pakistani, who is completely unaware about his ministry giving directions to round up Bangladeshi immigrants, who compares the attack on the parliament to the mistaken identity of Sarabjit to be commensurate crimes has absolutely made strides in achieving national security by ensuring that there are no less than 22 attacks on the country, manifold more in Kashmir and innumerable attacks by insurgents. To the “sleeping at home” minister Mr. Shivraj, I toast.
  • Chinese dragon has been roaring much louder ever since you assumed office. It knows, you have no spine to stand up to it. There have been more than 400 intrusions in the past two years into our borders. There have been open claims on not just Arunachal, but also on parts of Sikkim. Despite all this, you have such a friendly heart that you trounce even the democratic protests by Tibetans against the Chinese oppression. To your kind neighbourhood, I toast. Oh, OK, Karat wants to toast you for this. Yes Sir, please.
  • The congress should be appreciated for having people like Arjun Singh. Mr. Arjun Singh hails the first time in parliament – Mr. Rahul Gandhi to be the PM in waiting. Getting the “yuvraj” angry he tries to say that he is not sycophantic. He is being given cold treatment for speaking against the high command of Congress and, in a bid to defend, the ultimate boot licking comes when Mr. Arjun Singh pledges his loyalty to the Gandhi family. After that not a day has passed since he heaps praise on Ms. Sonia and Rahul baba. To such “leaders”, I toast.
  • The government issues add with its achievements where the cabinet and other responsibility holding members of the party are placed as picture. This time the UPA also issued ads, but Ms. Sonia, who holds no portfolio was also present. Actually the PM would have denied it earlier and made some statements in the air to seem like he was in command, but now, the situation is peace. The people have gotten used to being under the proxy rule of the Italian lady. To such buffoonery, I toast.
  • The biggest achievements have been to establish proxy heads in every office, starting from the Governors to that of the President and VP. The president, Ms. Pratibha, has been issuing statements from her messages from the ghosts, shielding the fact that she is the most tainted, most senior person in the government. Mr. Hamid Ansari also is a very resourceful person, throwing out people in Rajya Sabha when the question about the nepotism is rather awesome when it was not even asked. To such rubber stamps I toast.
  • The government is standing with the support of the Left, the inflation has been making even normal existence in the nation nearly impossible. And we keep singing about aam aadmi. To such phony campaigns I toast.
  • The Indian food security and agriculture are facing great problems. While Mr. Swaminathan makes many recommendations which with some initiative will help the farmers, the Congress has taxed the honest farmers by waiving the loans taken from banks. A 60% farmers were left out in doling out a scheme that cost more than it would have cost to insure their future by continuing and expanding the farm insurance policy that was introduced by NDA. The loan waiver was both inadequate, and costly way of tackling the problem of agricultural productivity and it has sparked off another chain of suicides. But it was understood as a move which was pro-farmers even though most of them were left out of it. And to such schemes I toast.
  • The UPA’s highlights can not miss the Indo-US nuclear deal. While no party other than the Congress is inclined to accept the deal, while the opposition asks for a renegotiation, the Congress has been sabotaging the debate over the deal by saying that India would lose face by not honouring the deal. The PM has not been making any efforts to continue the debate and obtain a consensus on the issue. To such parliamentary spirit or the absence thereof, I toast.
  • The strategies in the UPA pockets are many, some would blow my mind off too. A simple one of that, which is that of buying the election commissioners. And notwithstanding the age of 71, handing him the ministry of youth affairs is another part of your clever strategies. To such policies I toast.
  • We have about 30 crores of poor people in the country, who do not have enough for daily subsistence. But our PM is very choosy and he says that the Muslims have the first right over the nations resources. I hand over my glass to my Muslim friend so she toasts to you in gratitude.

At the risk of getting very drunk, I list down the best of the points from my book

  • First thing the UPA did upon assuming its office was asking Britain not to hold the accounts of Ottavio Quattrochi and more at the behest of Ms. Sonia to honour her friendship with him and then later letting him go free by failing to put up a good show in Argentine courts, and then not letting the nation know that Quattrochi has walked free.
  • A head count in the Defence on the religion basis.
  • Very late action on food security — no imports and no ban on exports till april this year.
  • The union minister’s novice analysis saying that changing food habits are responsible for the rise of prices and that poor are eating too much.
  • Scores of terror attacks on the nation and none of them have been cracked completely till now.
  • Imposition of President’s rule in Bihar (SC also declared it illegal), Goa, Nagaland because of installed Governors. Cruel murder of democracy in many states and in particular Jarkhand where history was created when an independent candidate was made the CM, again with the helping ‘hand’ of the Governor.
  • Usage of parliament to give heed to personal vendettas as shown in the case of the removal of the AIIMS director and the SC observation thereafter.
  • Misuse of parliament system again to save Sonia’s head from rolling with the extremely biased ‘office of profit’ bill.
  • The cabinet ministry in the UPA government has done something that no one has done before. To question in denial the existance of Lord Rama, when it was not even necessary in the context.
  • The centre has been observing silence in dealing with the Left inspite of the Left government using the police to murder people in Kerala and West Bengal. The silence over the misgovernance in Kerala and Nandigram episodes go on to say the position that Congress has taken on these issues.
  • Hon. minister, Mr. Mani Aiyar (no longer in cabinet) in arrogance of coming to power asking for the photo of Veer Savarkar to be removed from the parliament house. Veer Savarkar fought bravely and long for the country for the independence which the Congress ministers in the arrogance of power have failed to see.
  • To treat Taslima Nasreen like an international prisoner as a resounding slap to freedom of speech.
  • The RTI which is touted as one of the achievements of the UPA government, was an initiative taken by Shri. H D Shourie, the father of Mr. Arun Shourie, the same was modified through debate in the parliament to make more inclusions and said to be a big achievement of the UPA government.
  • Introduction of the womens bill is also named as an achievement; the NDA government has introduced the bill twice. Highly misleading, the UPA is making last straw.

Well, I must stop here. You are hardly listening to me, but to Mr. Amar Singh.

A couple of days ago, Bangladesh(!) passed an anti-terror law giving immense powers to the police to tackle terrorism. The BJP has repeated its demands for the anti-terror law and the congress has slipped into silence. Deja Vu!

Some of my own friends were asking me why I was supporting the laws which were against Muslims. I was too surprised at their ignorance to laugh at that time, so I came back and wrote this post.

First, the anti-terror laws are considered a western method of handling terror attacks. This is not only untrue, it is irrelevant. The western countries, North American, South American and European are not in the terror belt. Their anti-terror laws are against an eventuality. India and other sub continent are in the very active belt of terrorism, the terror laws here are against certainty of having to use them. The potently dangerous mixture of Islam with Illiteracy and poverty is found here giving room for straying into terrorism. India has its own set of special problems with a number of separatist groups, Nepal and China funded naxals and maoists, and other groups in the past like the Khalistan rebels and LTTE rebels. While Bangladesh also faces the brunt of terrorism, India faces it more severely and much more. India is also one of the worst affected apart from Iraq. Pakistan, Indonesia, Japan, Australia, China have all their anti-terror laws in place.

Why special laws, what about existing laws? Identified conviction rate in the country is 40%, while the conviction rate for murder is as low as 6.5%. So there is as much as 93% chance that you may get away with murder if you committed it. Apart from that, it provides the police with the possibility of producing evidence that may be inform of a confession or intercepted from radio sources etc. which are not normally permitted. The law names prevention of terrorism act, is actually preventive in nature. The law gives power to police to be able to prevent acts of terror. Currently a very modified form of the law is in place called the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Amendment Act. This law is a very mild version of the POTA, and is quite incapable of dealing with terror severely.

Can that not be misused? Everything can be misused. The TADA was also supposedly misused, this matter was brought to court, some safe guards were then recommended. Those safeguards have been incorporated into the POTA. These include,

  • Investigation of an offense under the Act is to be done by an officer not below the rank of Deputy Superintendent of Police.
  • No court can take cognizance of an offense under the Act unless sanction of the State.
  • The Act provides safeguards against abuse of the provision relating to admissibility of confession made before a police officer. – Confessions made involuntarily fall under this category
  • Intimation of arrest of the accused will have to be provided to a family member immediately after arrest and this fact is to be recorded by the police officer.
  • Provision for prosecution of police officers for malafide actions under the Act (including rigorous imprisonment upto 2 years) and compensation to affected persons in such cases.

Additionally, Mr. Advani had announced the setting up of a central review committee to take complaints regarding the misuse of the law. The alleged misuse is from the BJP ruled states, however the complaints received were, 40 from TN, 39 from Maharashtra, 28 from Delhi, 26 from UP, 16 from J&K and 15 from Jharkhand. In all of these cases, the central review committee gave its verdict, sometimes in favour of the accused and sometimes in favour of the state. On the contrary, the Pakistani laws against terrorism are rather draconian in comparison. POTA is one of the only anti-terror laws that actually incorporates some safeguards in the interest of people.

Why is the congress opposed to it? The congress does not have a definite vote bank in the Hindus which it can identify with on a national scale (on a state scale, the congress has its own caste political equations). The congress only identifies a vote bank counter to that of the BJP. The BJP which emerged as a Hindu revivalist party may not identify with communal any more but the congress and media have not tired of painting that picture about them. The counter vote bank is that of the minorities. The congress feels that repealing the law will make the Muslims feel secure and the loyalties of the votes would be maintained. That is briefly why the congress is opposed to the law.

But don’t terror attacks happen anyway? Yes they do. POTA is not a magic wand. And its not like what BJP justifies that anti theft laws do not prevent theft from happening anyway. The case is not so trivial. What POTA does is that it gives us a chance to be able to prevent terrorist groups from forming, to break terror networks and to prevent attacks by acting proactively on intelligence. The workings of this are like Heisenberg’s uncertainity principle, if we want more prevention, then more draconian laws and less politics and if we want somewhat reasonable laws then the prevention will be within reasonable limits, which is what POTA enables us to.

The POTA is not an anti-Muslim law, it is in fact a very sensible law. And it should be implemented for all the right reasons.

“Vinasha kale vipareeta budhi”

Like the old Indian adage, towards the end of their term congress’s ministers statements are indicating absence of any thought whatsoever. While Arjun Singh has already set benchmarks in servitude with his sycophantic loyalist sycophantic statements, Shivraj Patil is engaged in different kind of mindless blabber.

The Delhi High Court has earlier reprimanded the ministry for inaction in dealing with immigrants in the state. Consequently the Bangladeshi immigrants are being placed in transit camps in large numbers. Rajasthan has made numerous requests to the centre asking for help and direction in dealing with Bangadeshi immigrants. The inaction on the part of the home ministry has caused many causalities in Jaipur blasts. Now the state is following the centre’s directions and placing them in transit camps and Mr. Patil, completely slipping into amnesia about what his own ministry wrote to Rajasthan government asking it to quarantine the illegal Bangladeshis, has now denied it. He goes on to say that we are living in a democracy not a monarchy.

How it escapes Mr. Patil’s mind that the deportations in Delhi were also sanctioned by the court (hence legal) is quite tough to understand. Besides, we are a democracy, but we do have an entry policy, a visa requirement. It may be against democratic interests of Mr. Patil but how is deportation of illegal immigrants against democracy as such is something that Mr. Patil only can explain.

Patilisms have reached its height with,

“If you are asking for Afzal Guru’s hanging, then how can you ask for pardon for Sarabjit Singh?” [video]

Afzal Guru, an LeT militant, is convicted and guilty in the parliament attacks. And Sarabjit Singh, a person with mistaken identity who has been sentenced to death under Pakistans anti-terror laws. “They are both the same, why death for one and clemency for other!!?” — Profound thoughts, its only the creative illiterate mind of a Mr. Shivraj Patil which can render such bullshit with such ease.

Asked what would be done in Guru’s case, Patil said: “We will do whatever is appropriate according to law”.

Mr. Patil, as a home minister it reeks of irresponsibility for someone like you not to keep track of the court judgements. The law has already spoken when you were asleep. Mr. Guru has been given the death sentence and the sentence has been upheld. It is the President’s will to hold the clemency, but the appropriate action by law has already been given. And everyone knows, President can decide only upon the Home ministry’s recommendations.

Mr. Patil’s vipareeta buddhi is further made worse by the fact that he places the rights of aliens over the safety of citizens. His amnesia over directions to state on handling of illegal immigrants and his illiterate- immature comments are a bane to the ones already suffering the aftermath of the blasts. Mr. Home minister would be well advised to take his feet out of his mouth and do something productive like Ms. Raje is doing in Rajasthan.


Mr. Patil’s true follower — Ms. Sheila Dikshit!

After the issue of illegal Bangladeshis has gained prominence in the public domain, one after the other Congress leaders are fighting it out to save the rights those ‘visitors’! After all, they are the Congress vote bank — yes, they have ration cards, voter ids, driving license and what not! — courtesy: Congress and CPM. Coming to Ms. Dikshit, yea, the same lady who cried against Biharis and UP-wala migrants in Delhi saying that they are a burden on the capital’s resources now says that illegal Bangladeshis are her guests and India believes in ‘athiti devo bhava’!

What a hypocrisy!

Dear Soniaji,

For more than 10 years now, you have been at the helm of the Indian National Congress party, and you have traveled far and wide to meet the people. And congratulations on making good progress in learning Hindi.

My request to you and other party members is that you would stop making visits to terror struck places in such a conspicuous manner. Firstly, it is you and your party members, whose divisive policies have resulted in increase of such attacks rendering the value of life of us common people quite worthless. And to add to the flutter and the feigned concern, you are also hindering the people who actually volunteer to help.

You said in your speech that we need polity with principles. Its probably high time you lived up to that ideal. Please do not stop the volunteers from doing humanitarian service merely because they belong to RSS. The first PM from your own dynasty, Pt. Nehru also had appreciated the service done by RSS volunteers and had invited them to the republic day parade in full uniform.

For long your party has been working at undermining the work done by this group. For long you have been creating rumours about the RSS and creating enmity in the society. Please stop these divisive tactics and do something in the interest of the people of the nation, because the party policies based on untruth’s shall not pass the test of time.

Satyameva Jayate


Ek aam aurat, Saakshi.

Prime minister Dr. Manmohan Singh [MMS] has had to spend sleepless nights for two Indian doctors who were involved in the London-Glasgow airport terror plot. Dr. MMS could not help after he saw on television, the mother of those doctors breaking down on some news channel. Fair enough!

But what about the terror acts happening in the country and the innocents being killed ruthlessly? Does he ever lose his sleep for those mothers and sisters? Let me not remind him of IISc attack, Mumbai blasts, Ajmer blasts, Hyderabad blasts and UP blasts.

  • Let me just ask our “extremely kind” PM, does he ever gone sleepless for these people – 90 killed and more than 150 injured in a city which is all known for its peace and calm. The Pink city of India turned red with innocents’ blood. Are you at least bothered to visit the place Dr. MMS? Doesnt seem so. [You are under Bhutan tour currently, but could have visited the city before that.]
  • Did you lose sleep over this Dr. MMS? How many jawans have to die before you wake up? How many wives have to become widows before your wife asks you to do something to combat terror? You were present in person when this wife of a heroic jawan broke down. You witnessed her helplessness – she cried inconsolably. Did you not lose your sleep, why Dr. MMS?

Its is high time you stop this cruel drama for minority votes. Terror is terror, whoever does it should be handled properly – be it a Hindu or a Muslim. Terror victims are innocents – again, be them from any religion. You cannot be numb to the victims of terror if they are from majority religion, dear Prime Minister. Rather than getting tougher with the terrorists, your government has consistently asked the probing agencies in Bangalore to go soft on the perpetrators, just because they are Muslims. All for the sake of their votes in the Karnataka elections. What a shame Dr. MMS! People never expected this from a man who is ‘honest’, ‘clean’ and a ‘good’ administrator.

Jaago (Man)Mohan pyaare!

The high court has severly criticised the central government with respect to the recommendations made by the Sachar comittee report. The Sachar comittee recommendations can be found here. The Sachar committee is very important in understanding the Congress party policy and in deciding a secular path.

The congress party falls backwards bending to make these committees and reports to appease the muslims. As the high court rightly puts it,

“You (government) are trying to please one community and this is where the rot lies,” were the scathing remarks of an angry bench headed by Justice T S Thakur while dealing with a petition pending in HC since December last, challenging the Sachar committee recommendations. “You are trying to please one community. Poverty is the common enemy. You should fight against poverty rather than saying that you would fight against poverty for one community only,” the bench observed during the hearing. The bench wondered why the government’s benevolence was targeted at one community alone, “You are saying that more money be spent for one minority community. Should it not cut across caste and religion? Does the Sachar committee say that facilities are available to other communities?” the HC demanded.

Congress party set up to remain subservient to the British has now learnt something from the British policy book – Divide and Rule. It is inherent in congress policy to overdo secularism and hence defeat it. The congress policies strive to pander to the select minorities and hence mock secular policies. This throws parties into a contest of who appeases more. Thankfully, as long as we have governments and parties like these, the courts shall be the voice of the masses.
