The Manuwadi in India has held Patriotism to be the highest of all values. It is being propagated as the highest form of all virtues and every Indian must have it. Just having patriotism is not office, every citizen has to openly display it.
The cunning manuwadi snakes have come out a hidden agenda to tighten their grip on masses and keep them further pauperized. The state, judiciary, police, media, so-called upper caste people and some brainwashed lower caste idiots all are party to this well-crafted propaganda. Every senseless act and talk of Manuwadi politicians and religious fanatics are being justified by masking it with patriotism mask.
India (Bharat) is being portrayed as mother and every Indian should shout Bharat Mata ki Jai (Hail Mother India). The standard slogan ‘Jai Hind’ (Hail Hindustan) is not only replaced by Bharat Mata ki Jai but being mandatory for everyone to shout. Uttering the sentence , according to these Manuwadis, proves one’s patriotism. Their hidden targets are of course Muslims and Christians who are uncomfortable with equating a piece of land with mother and hailing an imaginary mother because of their religious belief. No other slogan except uttering this one supposedly proves one’s patriotism.
The recent ill-conceived demonetization scheme has snatched livelihood of millions. 100 plus people died and business has been severely affected due to lack of demand. The demonetization which is nothing but legal plunder of people’s money sought to be justified citing ‘national interest’. Those who oppose are being shut down by drawing parallel with Army men guarding boarders day and night for national good.
‘When army men can stand on boarder for days to protect us, why can’t we stand before ATM for few hours for common good?’ is the standard reply these Manuwadi provide who disapprove demonetization.
Recently, Dipak Mishar, a RSS affiliated Supeme Court Judge, has made singing of national anthem compulsory in all film theaters before movie screening. Such a move, according to this right wing judge, will inculcate feeling of patriotism and belongingness to nation. Interestingly the Supreme Court turned down to the plea to make national anthem mandatory before every court proceeding.
So, What is the real motive?
The motives are two-fold.
Emphasis on patriotism allows the Manuwadi to hide inhuman atrocities they have committed against indigenous people like Dalit and Tribal over centuries and which still go on unabated. While in liberal countries like USA and UK values like humanism, individual freedom, tolerance and respect for other ideas are given priority over patriotism in India patriotism supersedes all other values . Giving priority to ‘Humanism’ over other ideals will clearly expose these wicked Manuwadis. The issues faced by Dalits and Tribals are played down by diverting attention to so-called higher ideas like ‘common good’, ‘national development’, and ‘national interest’.
The patriotism that Manuwadis profess is nothing but disguised communalism and stems from their intense open hatred for Muslim and Christian. The idea is to divide people in ‘US versus THEY’ line and reap political dividend. Unfortunately, the seems to have become successful and are being frequently used before election to polarize masses on religious and ethnic line.
The real patriotism of these cowards Manuwadis are well known and documented. During independence struggle they sided with British and did not participate in freedom movements.
India is such country patriotism is not last but first refuge of scoundrels, bigots, communalists and religious fanatics. Foul mouthed politicians, corrupt corporates, tax evading celebrities and even criminal gangsters justify their misdeeds by taking refuge under patriotism.
