So, I am still far away in a strange country with a terrible internet connection, but I have become so addicted to blogging that I can’t help saying a few lines nevertheless. It took me like 10 tries loading and reloading but I managed to watch the new video with
“Bharat ke tukde honge: Inshallah Inshallah!”
Well, it is nice to see Indian liberals finally discover the importance of free speech. As Opindia put it perfectly, for the Indian liberal, “free speech” is like my uncle’s car, only I can borrow it because he is my uncle, not your uncle 🙂
All these months, Kamlesh Tiwari has been sitting in jail, charged under the freaking National Security Act. Then, no questions of free speech were asked. When Karnataka Police picked up a man and sent him to jail merely for insulting Tipu Sultan in a Facebook post, freedom of expression didn’t come up. Ha! My favorite example is that in 2007, the BJP itself had to attend a “de-recognition hearing” because some BJP leader had released a CD speaking ill about Muslims. Freedom of expression wasn’t threatened even when the main opposition party in the country was threatened with derecognition because it had expressed a view that liberals found objectionable..lol. Where is freedom of expression? In India? You are better off looking for snowfall in Madhya Pradesh.
And so, dear Nehruvian liberals, the sedition laws stay…don’t cry like b*tches because you are now at the receiving end. You should have thought about freedom of speech BEFORE you summoned the BJP for de-recognition over a CD. You should have thought then. Now please enjoy yourselves in jail.
Not surprisingly, some liberals have rehashed the old “Godse smear” and have been sniping at the BJP. Oh come on… Sakshi Maharaj is just one MP out of hundreds of BJP MPs…the BJP is not like your party with 1% vote and 0-5 MPs. And he retracted his words immediately. Now please tell your 2-3 MPs and your little party to stop glorifying Stalin as a matter of policy. You may not need lessons in patriotism from the “worshippers of Godse”, but we also do not need lessons in democracy and free speech from the worshippers of Stalin, Mao, Castro and Che Guevara.
There have also been numerous articles by liberals “warning” the Modi government: telling them they are underestimating the power of JNU. There was one in the Hindustan Times explaining how JNU faculty and alumni have “international connections” and how the New York Times and the Economist may turn against Modi if he keeps up pressure on JNU! ROFL! I burst out laughing. Clearly, lefties are not aware of their own irrelevance.
And there is another reason those threats ring hollow. By definition, a threat works like this:
“Do this OR ELSE I will take away X”
What will you take away, liberals? What have you given the BJP that you can threaten to take it away? You threaten to stall Parliament? Ha! As if you wouldn’t have stalled Parliament if the BJP compromised on JNU! You threaten to unite the Opposition against us? Ha! You have all been united against us since Day 1! What will you do now? You threaten to turn “international opinion” against us? Ha! You already got Modi banned from the US and Europe and Canada and Australia and nothing worked. What threat do you guys have left? What will you do? Will you try to ban the RSS? Already happened several times!! Lol! What is left? And finally, will you threaten that secular state governments will get BJP supporters and workers killed? Ha! BJP/RSS workers are already being massacred under secular state governments in Bihar, Bengal, Karnataka and Kerala. What is left for you guys to do now? What can you do to hurt the BJP that you have not already done 1000 times?
So dear lefties, please understand that you can’t blackmail us. Because you are already using every tactic from intellectual suppression to defamation to physically massacring BJP workers. There is nothing new you can do…
So, dear lefties, be our guest. Go ahead and do your worst. Let us find out who is more powerful: the Home Minister or the “President” of JNUSU. I say take it to the United Nations that Modi’s army has invaded the Republic of JNU and captured its President. A “Head of State” like Kanhaiyya Kumar dragged away by an invading army!!! Go tell the world about this outrage. Go tell them that Modi government didn’t give a flying f*ck about diplomatic courtesy: He didn’t even inform the embassy of the Republic of JNU (also called Aaj Tak) about the arrest of their President. He should have raised the issue of anti-India activities at the India-JNU summit meeting, no? Go tell the UN how Indian forces captured your little Republic… go tell the UN how Modi will neither recognize the sovereignty of JNU nor the diplomatic immunity of all its ambassadors in TV studios. Go ahead and do your worst…
