It is time that the followers of Right-wing Hindu groups realise they are the real anti-nationals
When the whole of the nation bid an emotional farewell to its 44 brave soldiers, who lost their lives in the Pulwama terror attack, dozens of students from the Kashmir valley studying in Dehradun stayed closed inside their rooms fearing attack from a violent mob gathered outside their place of residence. It is exasperating to learn that the right-wing Hindu groups such as Bajrang Dal and Vishwa Hindu Parishad are unleashing violence targeting Kashmiri natives residing in other states of the country.…
It is more disturbing that the Kashmiri students were called “traitors” by the members of the Hindu groups and demanded the students to leave the city within the next 24 hours. Though the students rang up the police seeking aid and protection they turned up to advice the students to face the mad mob and apologise. But on what account should these students seek an apology from the mad crowd? The students have nothing to do with the Jaish-e-Mohammed or the terror attack.…
And it is best you realise that you have no rights to call Kashmiris ‘anti-nationals’ when you are the hardcore anti-nations, the country had ever witnessed. It was your great leaders who had killed Mahatma Gandhi – the father of the nation. It is your ideologies that do not let you cherish the diversity and plurality of the nation. You cannot tolerate Muslims, you do not encourage dissent, you are scared of Dalits standing up against your race. You do not respect the Constitution. You do not have rights to question the patriotism of a fellow Indian as your leaders are those recreating the assassination of Mahatma Gandhi. Because you are the real anti-nationals.
