Reality Check India

Comment on BJPs dangerous game

Posted in Uncategorized by realitycheck on March 29, 2009

I happened to read this post on the Retributions blog.

Unfortunately, the retributions blog software refused to take my comment saying something like “Your comment is too long or too short – split it into multiple comments”

So I am posting my comment here, this way I wont lose it. I will retry posting it later on his blog when I have some time.

 

Wow !

If Varun is in jail today for not controlling his emotions, we Indians also need to be in locked up for voting on the emotional issue of Varun and not on policy.

A political kid bursts out emotionally in front of a huge crowd who came to hear exactly what he said. As distasteful as his speech was, this cannot be allowed to become the dominant election issue in India. It only shows how much growing up we have left to do. If the BJP throws Varun out of the party, who is going to bring in substitute headcount to replace those who were cheering for him. 

Who is going to balance the strain in society created by Manmohan Singh by his “first claim on resources” speech ?  By throwing Varun out of the party, the BJP would have automatically relegated itself to a trash can because they have officially accepted a title of “MUTANT” vis-a-vis other parties like the CPI-M ( Madhani) and the DMK (called Hindus = Thieves). 

 Varuns *speech* may have been divisive, but the Congress Party led UPA governments *actions* have been no less divisive. What do they say : Actions speak louder than words.

Does anyone recall that five years back we did not have a Religion column in any of the bank forms ? I dont think Varun created these forms.

I call upon the Indian voter to punish divisive policy (ie action) first.  This will allow Indian society to evolve to a level where divisive words automatically create nausea. You cannot pursue divisive policy and forcefully bottle up reactions to it using the media.

Does anyone even care that the PM and the former FM refused a probe into the spectrum scam ?

    —- His Blog Software ate my comment again saying it is too long —-

    So here is a response.

    >> And please, if anyone in the US would say kill niggers, it is unlikely, his party would stand there and defend him >>

    I think you answered it yourself.

    Would any party in the USA support a leader who says “Whites will have first claim on resources” ?

    Would any party in the USA back a leader who says major compromises to equality can be made merely based on his life stories and not data ?

    You may think that “here we go again with the tit-for-tat”. Unfortunately you cannot avoid it.

    The minute you introduce distortion in the country by a divisive policy (thanks solely to the Congress) – then you have to deal with the repurcussions. You cannot let Dr Singh (Arjun + Manmohan ) slide away and only bottle up Varun. Real people are affected by the divisive policies put in place. How do we deal with them ?

    The USA’s affirmative action program is backed by data. I can find out how many minority doctors are practising in every county. This is not to mention that the effectiveness of the minority entitlement is easily measurable because it is race based and therefore visible.

    If you want to compare the US with India, let us acknowledge the differences first. They did not get there by accident. We cannot worship the compromises to equality and evidence based social justice and hope to get there.

    Your readers can be forgiven for thinking that my comment is a template rant against the reservation policy. We have interacted via the blogosphere long enough to know the quota-no-data policy is not like a compromised PDS system. It has profound effects on the entire democratic system.

    The results are in front of us to see.

    Is this true? Do bank forms include religion column now? Will you please specify which bank(s) do this? I was not able to find any such form online!

    Most banks do this , at least on the loan forms and possibly on the new account forms. They are not present on the transaction forms.

    There is a vision defect called SVD, which may prevent seeing certain things.
