  1. Dear readers,

    Did you know that the return of awards by writers, film-makers and scientists was a plot hatched jointly by the United States of America, Saudi Arabia and Pakistan? Well, if you did not, you will probably not ever understand why the ‘tolerant’ multitude that turned out at Anupam Kher’s March for India rally today, could so vilely abuse and attack NDTV’s Bhairavi Singh and Aaj Tak’s Mousmi Singh. After all, it is one thing for the netas to simulate their anger and laughter on TV channels and elsewhere, but how do you actually get ordinary people to go crazy? How and why does the ordinary Hindutva footsoldier act the way he or she does? Basically, he (and occasionally, she) is made to believe things that most people would know to be false. So why does as innocuous an act as the returning of awards by writers become such a big threat to India’s position in the world and to the very existence of the government of the day? Well, because, it is not a simple matter of some writers acting out of their conscience but already a part of an international conspiracy plotted by the US-Saudi Arabia-Pakistan nexus!

  2. LOL LOL
    This seems to be the favorite thing for people with single digit IQs!! Let’s call it what it is – These are all anti-BJP protests, nothing to do with tolerance!!

  3. The BJP’s hidden agenda to make use of the big majority and political power to transform India into an autocratic theocracy is being challenged in every turn; besides the whole world is watching the complex drama emerging in the largest democratic country of the world.

    The BJP politicians can speak loud what they feel without fearing anybody; if the movie stars, authors etc are expressing their bewilderment of the emerging suppression and intolerance in India, they are attacked by the street goons and the party. Well, we are going to watch some big political dramas in India.
