I have long believed that the BJP’s greatest blessing is that it has so many people who support them without wanting a paisa in return. The Congress patronage network is the opposite of this.
On the intolerance debate, I see the official BJP floundering, I see BJP spokespersons on TV being overly defensive, unable to turn the tables on vicious presstitutes and the Award Wapsi gang. I see topmost ministers sitting calmly in the audience as Aamir Khan trashes our nation. Yes, I am talking about Arun Jaitley. I see even Modi mouthing platitudes about Islam, when Obama, Hollande and Putin have the guts to tell it like it is.
The official BJP seems scared, apologetic about its massive Lok Sabha victory. The BJP’s supporters are doing the opposite. Frustrated by the party’s placid approach, the BJP supporters are stirring the pot. Vehemently and courageously. When top Ministers sitting in power are scared to rock the boat of secularism, Anupam Kher is putting his career on the line by coming out openly against repeated insults to our nation.
March for India was brilliant. By bringing out ordinary people against the compromised Congi elite, it took the PR initiative decisively away from the tolerance mafia. And the latest Aamir Khan episode is even sweeter. Common people hitting these hypocrites where it hurts most: in their pocketbooks. Snapdeal was an excellent choice. People who shop on Snapdeal are also the people most active on Twitter and FB. Insult the nation and you will have to deal with us.
This is the beginning of smart protest. Please…no more hooligan style stone throwing. In this age of cameras, don’t make it so easy for NDTV. Bad optics only gets you a bad name. But enjoy the leftie morons seethe with rage as the online world junks Snapdeal, applying pressure where it hurts. Totally bloodless, totally legal and stunningly effective. With smart protest there should be smart Hindutva. Talk less about cows and much more about Uniform Civil Code. Whether the BJP is awake or not, the larger ecosystem has begun to organize spontaneously with or without help from the party. Country above Party. Dear Aamir, very few people have benefitted so much from the tolerance of Indian people as you have. You spit on us, we turn our back on you. If we don’t like you, we don’t have to watch your movies, right? You said that in all your arrogance because you were confident that Indian Hindus were tolerant enough to enjoy your movie trashing our traditions. Dear friends, let’s make it a reality now.
Oh and just in case anyone feels that Snapdeal is an innocent bystander who should not have to face the heat:
