Congratulations, Modi, on being the mascot of Hindu fundamentalism in India for two years

Modi is not a changed man, rather he is trying to alter the secular hue of the country with saffron, the colour closely associated with Hindu right wing. It’s not a subtle anti-minoritism, it’s as brazen as it can be. PHOTO: AFP

India’s Donald Trump completed two years in office last week. We, Indians can relate to the fear the Americans may have on the possibility of the Republican leader winning the elections. We have been living in that anxiety and fear since 2014.

There are many people in the United States who believe that the raucous, divisive Trump will be a changed man once he becomes the president. They are willing to buy the argument that power will mellow him down.

The same argument was touted when Modi launched himself as the candidate for Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) for premiership three years ago. Many, who supported him – forgetting his involvement in the 2002 Gujarat riots and his majoritarian politics in the state – rationalised that Narendra Modi as the PM would be an inclusive leader and an agent of positive change in India.

Media, corporate houses, a section of intelligentsia endorsed him with the hope that the BJP leader means business and he exudes sincerity when he talks about ushering in a new era of economic development. Larger masses feeling disenchanted by the Congress regime believed each and every word Modi uttered. He played into the fears, insecurities, vanities and ambitions of the masses and secured their approval.

Two years down the line, Modi no longer appears to be the panacea for the ills affecting the state, but a symptom of a deeper malaise that confronts the Indian nation today. His is the manifestation of the lurking majoritarianism that threatens to devour the democracy nurtured so assiduously for more than six decades.

Modi is not a changed man; he is trying to alter the secular hue of the country with saffron, the colour closely associated with Hindu right wing. It’s not subtle anti-minoritism, it’s as brazen as it can be. If the minority is hurt, so be it – this seems to be the attitude of the government. A Muslim man was killed over rumours that he had consumed beef and the BJP never condemned the incident, instead the prime minister maintained an enigmatic suspense. Every now and then the Hindu radical groups associated with the BJP or Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) question the credentials of Muslims in India. Their loyalty to the country is interrogated, and by altering history textbooks, they are being portrayed as the outsiders. Rabid anti-Muslim icons of the Hindu right wing group are getting institutional recognition and a place in history textbook.

The liberal and secular traditions of the country are at stake today. Anyone who questions the Hindu majoritarian agenda is being termed as anti-national. This mind set has stirred turmoil in university campuses as well. The students who question the majoritarian agenda of the regime are labelled as anti-national and a threat to the society.

No wonder there is currently a new kind of societal tension in India. The saffronisation project – as the right wing agenda is popularly called, has not only created new fault lines, but also accentuated the old ones.

The main culprits that were involved in the Malegaon blast case (who happen to be Hindus linked to the RSS) were set free and washed clean of anything indicating their penchant for targeting Muslims and patronising those belonging to the majority community. Most of those convicted in the 2002 Gujarat riot cases are now free on bail and leading a normal life.

In the last couple of years, Hindu radical groups have dominated headlines in India and they have unleashed havoc not only on social media but on society as a whole. If there is a historical parallel to the current situation, the present right wing government resembles the Ziaul Haq regime of Pakistan in 1980s. The Pakistani dictator institutionalised Islamic extremism in the country with its open support and imparted biased history to its citizens. That being said, India’s western neighbour continues to suffer the pain of this majoritarian fundamentalism.

Under Modi’s government, India is witnessing the same majoritarian makeover. Under the garb of democracy – a very dangerous trend is let loose in the country which will be a body blow to the secular polity and constitution of the country.

India accepted Modi as he promised economic reforms and development, but the BJP leader is working on a different agenda altogether. According to The Telegraph,

“Narendra Modi’s first two years in office can be summed up as a betrayal of great expectations…There has been a remarkable rise in the level of fear among sections of the population, particularly among minorities and among those who are opposed to Mr Modi’s regime.”

A popular public intellectual and social scientist, Shiv Visvanathan calls Modi “Frankenstein”, a scientist, who creates a monster that not only kills its creator but also devours everything else. In an article, titledThe facade of great celebration of India’s ‘most mediocre regime’, Visvanathan writes that,

“When the RSS runs epidemic over the country, I wonder if my era, my sense of the country is outdated.

For a man like me, who witnessed the 2002 riots, Modi is a non-negotiable entity.

Yet the country is cutting cakes and celebrating two years of Modi rule. It is as if one is caught in a huge B-grade play with a country singing happy birthday to Frankenstein.”

Modi might be celebrating his two years as a dawn of a new era, but there are many who are concerned about the unabated rise of Hindu fundamentalism in the country. The divisive forces that have been at the margin of Indian polity since independence, have assumed centre stage. Modi is the mascot of that force.

For the last two years, Modi has been focussed on tuning India into a rabid Hindu state.

    Another one of those congress chamchaas who talks against BJP. To compare Modi with Zia is simply stupid. BJP is like conservatives in the UK, Republican party in the US and so many more right wing parties everywhere. Its a centre right party. Years of congress rule played minoritism to the hilt and this enraged the majority Hindu population. This coupled with massive corruption enabled BJP to win. Not only this, Gujarats progress also enabled Modi to be PM. These authors just dont like BJP, while most of us indians think Modi is cleaning the system from corruption and helping improve India for Indians.Recommend

  • harkol

    The fear Sanjay speaks of is non-existent. Calling Modi India’s donald trump is churlish and shows the closed nature of writer’s mind.

    The only thing that can ever be held against Modi is his inadequacy in dealing with 2002 riots. Other than that he has been the best anti-dote to India’s horrible politics, riddled with corrupt, dynastic rulers.

    No one can point a finger at him for his integrity or his general policies. So, they keep harping back to his RSS roots as if that is a crime.

    All these folks who talk evil of Modi, forget to suggest a good alternative. Is it Nitish Kumar? Or is it half-nut-case Arvind Kejriwal? Or full-nut-case Rahul Gandhi?Recommend

    Zia stepped in during PPP v Jamaat rioting. Zia gave in to Jamaat demands that were driving public opposition to the PPP.

Ofcourse, they want UPA back which continued to propagate a class based system India where Gandhis and their stooges are the undisputed lords free to loot the country, and poor masses lived off their generosity.

    Sanjay Pandey and Shiv Vishwanathan never took their pen to write about the brutal murders of political opponents by India’s Left Parties in Kerala and West Bengal, because it served to show these secular humbugs and opportunists in good light.

    The writing is on the wall and people like Shiv Vishwanathan and Sanjiv Pandey choose to ignore it- Indians are tired of the old ‘secular’ brigade that has nothing to offer and are happy to see change. If it means that a ‘Hindu’ party gives it, so be it.Recommend

    Interesting read from a left wing perspective. But author must also know India have been a land of riots even before Modi or BJP existed. We have had Hindu-muslim fights since ages. Most of the major massacre and riots happened during Congress regime. Whom were the media people blaming back then? of course the congress government. So please refrain from blaming a government trying to bring in new reforms. Please start appreciating the good works and critic the bad one rather than blaming Mr.Modi. India is growing economically and is fastest growing economy in the world. I hate dynasty politics of congress, if they can end it and project a common man outside their “Gandi” family. We will vote them into power if Modi Government doesn’t keep up to their promises. Until then it will be always “BJP”Recommend

    If you don’t know, the riots started as a response to locking and burning of railway coach filled with Hindu karasevaks by Muslim goons. Also, Modi tried to get all the forces from neighboring states to control the situation at the earliest. However, those states which were being ruled by Congress declined to send any additional forces. There are enough proofs which are accepted by even the courts of Judiciary that Modi as CM of Gujarat was honest to try everything to stop the riots at the earliest.

    He is no more a sociopath than Indira Gandhi, Rajiv Gandhi and many others.

    Even Nelson Mandela was banned by very same countries and that didn’t mean anything. Besides, you say ‘civilized countries’? Which one? Modi travelled everywhere except US/UK, who were also the same folks who banned Nelson Mandela, because his politics didn’t suit them then.

    Indirect responsibility is a strange thing. Rajiv Gandhi was indirectly responsible for murders of far more men, Indira Gandhi was more directly responsible for Emergency & murders. No one barred them. And they had nothing to do with RSS, yet more people died under them. How about the policies of some Pakistani leaders who were directly/indirectly responsible for massacres of 100s of thousand Bangladeshis? They weren’t banned by USA or UK. Hypocrisy.

    And you spoke of RSS. Do point out a single international terrorist emerging out of RSS! Pakistan produces and hosts them by hundreds and they get killed by drones by the dozen!

    Thanks for standing up and writing the truth. This is a breath of fresh air. All news channels conveniently ignore the major issues confronting the country and act like th mouth piece of the BJP. Nothing significant has been achieved in the way of progress in the last three years of Modi Sarkar. Even tiny nations around us are no longer our friends. Having failed miserably on the development front, they have now gone back to their trump card of temple building and now have added cow protection, anti romeo squads etc. How are they going to stop young girls going crazy over Muslim bollywood stars. I am sure they will come up with some grand scheme. Nobody cares for fake GDP numbers. The country is not an MNC where you can hide behind phony book keeping. We are moving backwards.
