Hindutva and Liberal India

Muhammad Ullah: Modi’s war on reason has led to transformation of Indian culture of secularism into that of a grand lynch mob. The Indian general public takes this change as the new normal and its minds have been infiltrated. The Indian journey from its pluralist post-Partition ideals to a Hindu hegemony is reaching its destination. Dissenting voices have become inconvenient and RSS won’t allow it to mar the environment created by Hindutva rule since 2014. Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir was placed under indefinite lockdown and its special status under the Indian federation, which had afforded it a degree of autonomy, was revoked. India has reversed the gains so painstakingly achieved in establishing the facade of secularism, and RSS has bulldozed its way through to destroy the very fabric of India. In India, the Modi years are often spoken of as an undeclared emergency. The country’s 200 million Muslims are seen first as suspects, then citizens. Muslim men are beaten up over Facebook posts and blamed for everything from the country’s overpopulation to luring away Hindu women through Love Jihad. Many cities and landmarks that reflect India’s Muslim heritage have been renamed. Some school textbooks now glorify Hindu myths and paint the Subcontinent’s Muslim rulers in a barbaric light. Hate crimes against Muslims and other minorities have gone unprosecuted for years. Publishers have been pressured to withdraw books critical of Hindu figures. Reason is structured around the murders of four Indian activists, all of whom appear to have been targeted for their resistance to Hindu orthodoxy. Pansare had been active in progressive movements against caste and other discriminatory Hindu practices in Maharashtra. Looking at the drooping faces of leftists and liberals in India after 2019 elections, it appears that the Hindu majority has stamped the idea of Hindu Rashtra and it will be very convenient for RSS and BJP to move to the next step by officially declaring India as a Hindu republic. Another trend during campaigning in the Lok Sabha election and in Bihar was the fear of Congress and other secular parties to raise their voice for minorities. This appeasement of the majority Hindu population has now become a standard pattern in all political discourse in India and is being labelled as soft Hindutva. Another major group to suffer badly is the left and liberal segment of educated Indians, who were already labelled as Urban Naxal by the RSS-BJP cabal. The re-election of Modi with a landslide in 2019 has strengthened the perception that the Hindutva agenda of the RSS cabal is no more a dream but a reality. The debate and discourse on mainstream media is dominated by Godi media, bankrolled by corporate India. Recent elections in Bihar indicate that Hindutva ideology has permeated into every nook and corner of India and the persona of Modi has transformed from Mahapurush to that of a Mahatma, who despite poor governance and Neo Nazi credentials, must be blindly followed.
