Is India growing absurdly intolerant?Today I saw the most bizarre news possible on TV. That a lawyer is filing for sedition charges against a woman who simply said Pakistan is not hell. Normally I would expect, that majority of people would simply ignore this lawyer for being a mentally off, attention hungry person. Surprisingly, what I find instead is that politicians are actually backing the action of the lawyer and targeting Ramya for being insensitive to Indians.
Is this what it has come to? Are the citizens of our country so sensitive that they can't stand the praise (it wasn't even praise, it was just saying that the country is not hell) of any other country? Why is this sedition charge getting so much attention when it is so completely baseless.
I would like to know if other members feel our country is going in the right direction right now.
