Are liberals being alarmist over the Majoritarianism unleashed by Sangh Parivar, or are we being oblivious like Frogs put in water, who complacently let themselves be boiled slowly? We compare the situation against the well defined signs of Fascism.
The Sangh Parivar had huge reservations about the tricolour flag of India, and refused to hoist it for 52 years, even legally fought the three youth who hoisted it at their HQ.
What is Savarkar’s ideology of Hindutva? What is the history of Sangh Parivar and its ideological cousin Hindu Mahasabha? What was Godse’s link with RSS and Savarkar?
Should flawed implementation of a good ideology become grounds for us to switch to a flawed ideology? Majoritarianism is a dangerous path, we risk becoming what we hate.
BJP’s rise to the power was based on exploiting the religious feelings of Hindus on the promise of a Ram Mandir, and the bigotry, hatred and polarisation resulting from its Ayodhya campaign.
