Intolerant India: Why?


Intolerant India: Refusing to accept differences: showing an unwillingness or refusal to accept people who are different from you, or views, beliefs, or lifestyles within that differ from Hindutva

 1.      Intolerant India: The country refusing to accept differences: showing an unwillingness or refusal to accept people who are different from you, or views, beliefs, or lifestyles within that differ from Hindutva
2.     
Over the years, the Hindutva forces have become stronger and are in complete control of India today. Rather than being punished, the perpetrators of the mosque demolition have been handsomely rewarded.
3.     
The Congress branded Modi Khoon ka Saudagar: ‘Khoon ka saudagar’
4.     
The Congress branded Modi Khoon ka Saudagar but did nothing to bring him to justice.
5.     
The Congress scored mega victories in 2004 and 2009, but it did nothing to de-radicalise society infected by the Hindu right or defang the killers of Gujarat pogrom of 2002 which was a sequel to the mosque's destruction.

The Congress branded Modi Khoon ka Saudagar but did nothing to bring him to justice.
7.     
Some Supreme Court judges stepped in when they realised that a massive cover-up was under way in Gujarat. They appointed a SIT, but it didn't deliver.
8.     
But Debabrata enjoys a special place in my Ayodhya memories for an entirely different reason.
9.     
The VHP, which controlled Ayodhya in the run-up to the demolition, had made it mandatory for journalists to fill in forms for a 'press card' to cover the kar seva on December 6, 1992.
10. 
The cards were issued by a VHP media centre where I was handed a form.
11. 
I was filling it in when Debabrata pulled me aside and said that the kar sevaks wouldn't spare me if the card pinned to my chest had a Muslim name. "For God's sake, take a Hindu name, yaar," he whispered.
12. 
I told myself that if I was going to assume a Hindu name, it had better be good. Ultimately, I wrote AK Ray on the form along with the name of the magazine I worked for in those days, The Illustrated Weekly of India. AK Ray is phonetically similar to the Bengali words 'E ke ray' — or 'who is he'. The Bengali journalists gathered in Ayodhya complimented me for that touch of irony.
Congress govt’s failure:

13. 
The Gujarat pogrom of 2002 was definitely a sequel to the mosque's destruction.
14. 
Both were the outcome of a criminal conspiracy by the same forces. Although the Congress party scored two mega victories in 2004 and 2009, it did nothing to de-radicalise Indian society infected by the Hindu right or defang the killers of Gujarat, even as it denied justice to Muslims in Congress-ruled states like Maharashtra.
15. 
Manmohan Singh's government miserably failed to harness the law enforcement agencies and the judiciary to nail and jail ringleaders like Narendra Modi or Bal Thackeray.
16. 
On the contrary, when the USA revoked Modi's visa, the Congress government cried foul and lodged a protest!
17. 
The Congress branded Modi Khoon ka Saudagar but did nothing to bring him to justice. Some Supreme Court judges stepped in when they realised that a massive cover-up was under way in Gujarat.
18. 
They appointed a SIT, but it didn't deliver. In The Fiction of Fact-Finding: Modi and Godhra, Manoj Mitta writes that "it seemed as if the SIT panel's brief was more to place Modi's defence on record rather than to ferret out any inconsistency or admission of wrongdoing."
19. 
Summing up Modi's triumph over India's fact-finding capacity, Mitta wrote: "When the right questions are not put, there will be neither the right evidence nor the right conclusions."
20. 
Shabnam Hashemi openly says that the Congress actually helped Modi to win the Gujarat elections of 2012 so that the BJP would field him as PM candidate in 2014 which would force Muslims across India to vote en masse for the Congress. I don't put such machinations past the Congress.

Judiciary’s handling of case:
21. 
No less worrisome is the higher judiciary's handling of the Babri Masjid cases. Earlier this year, then Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, JS Khehar, mooted an out-of-court settlement in the civil case (or the title suit to establish whether Hindus or Muslims are the legal owners of the land where the mosque stood) abdicating his responsibility to mete out justice to the aggrieved Muslims.
22. 
And now the apex court wants to hear the title suit on a day-to-day basis from December 5. The tearing hurry makes no judicial sense. In fact, the criminal case, or the demolition suit, should be tried expeditiously to identify the criminals who razed the mosque. If the title suit is fast-tracked and Hindus win the case, then the demolition will be seen as "justified" to reclaim their own property.
23. 
As Hindutva forces become stronger, there is an alarming new tendency among judges to stop the media from publishing court proceedings in cases where its leaders are in the dock, whether it is Amit Shah in the 2005 Sohrabuddin Sheikh fake encounter case or Yogi Adityanath in the 2008 Gorakhpur hate speech case.
24.          
The courts clearly want to shield Shah and Adityanath from the public glare. This is a dangerous development with huge implications for the rule of law and freedom of the press in a democracy. The handling of the Hadiya case also shows which way the wind is blowing not only in the Supreme Court but also across India today. Courtesy: The Tribune, Chandigarh
