I believe that the poisonous argument originated in the gutters of paid academia when Mameluk Irfan Habib said this:
“In his speech, historian Irfan Habib said, “There is not much difference between Islamic State and the RSS as far intellect goes.””
At that time, I had blogged about this and the main thrust of my comments was that this is how Mameluks try to legitimize ISIS. After all, they need to find some way to make excuses for widespread Islamic barbarism across the world and they do that by trying to compare ISIS with RSS. After all, if the RSS/BJP which is sitting on the world’s largest democratic mandate can be compared with the Caliphate of ISIS, the image of ISIS’ brutal theocracy will get a tremendous boost. The Mameluks provide intellectual cover to ISIS and the larger global Islamic jihad, allowing it to advance one step at a time.
At the same time, this RSS = ISIS line that originated in the filthy academic cesspools of JNU, Sahitya Akademi and ICHR is now being taken mainstream by the Congress. Mameluks like Irfan Habib manufacture the filth and then it is the job of the Congress and its satellite parties (almost everyone except BJP) to take the “argument” to the masses. It is a system that has worked perfectly for ages now. The relation between the two parasites, i.e., the Dynasty and its intellectuals is actually symbiotic, a mutually beneficial relationship. With Mameluk historians, undeserving Akademi award winners and all other intellectual parasites applauding in agreement, Gulam Nabi Azad now triumphantly announces this:
The dirt that came out of the dirtbag called Irfan Habib is now being taken national. The only person in the Congress who was disappointed was Digvijay Singh, likely because Gulam Nabi Azad took the lead instead of him.
So, it is clear now. The Congress is going to take the RSS=ISIS line national. The bedrock for the argument was created in academia. Always remember that.
Also notice how the same intellectuals who can’t find any meaningful difference between RSS and ISIS are also the first to spring up and say that we can’t compare the CPI(M) with the CPI(Maoist). Yes, apparently we are supposed to care about the minute differences between various kinds of Commies but they will treat the RSS and ISIS as one and same! This is not just ordinary hypocrisy, there is another level to this that I would like to point out.
This also reflects the sense of self importance of Commies, much like Islamists. These Commie “intellectuals” feel that they occupy an exalted place in society and as such we the people should care about the minutiae of differences between the various wings of the Commie party, but they are allowed to make sweeping statements about us. Just like Americans expect Indians to know the name of the US President and even something about the US election, but few Americans would know about our PM or our election. Because America is a superpower and occupies an exalted position among nations. The same way with these Commie intellectuals who have declared themselves over and above us. We are required to know the difference between CPI(XYZ) and CPI(ABC) just like Americans expect us to know the difference between Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders. We can’t just call them all Commies, but they will lump the RSS with Hindu Mahasabha and now even ISIS(!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) because they are both right wing.
The Islamists have the same sense of self-entitlement. They place Islam at the center of the universe and expect us to know everything about Shia-Sunni conflicts and Islamic culture. If we cannot tell the difference between towel, hijab, abaya, nikab and burqa and what not, we are “ignorant”. At the same time, Mehdi Hasan mocks Ram Madhav by asking if he wants to paint the Taj Mahal “orange”! The fact that Mehdi Hasan doesn’t know that Hindus are associated with saffron rather than orange doesn’t make him ignorant. He is from the superior Abrahamic religion, he doesn’t need to learn about us, but we need to learn about him.
