Another tolerance-intolerance debate at Jashn-e-Rekhta festivalDuring 17th to 19th February, 2017, Jashn-e-Rekhta festival was held in Delhi. This has become an annual event in the cultural calendar of the capital. The festival is being held to propagate and encourage Urdu language and literature in India. As usual, the festival is organised and controlled by top-level liberals of the country. On 19th February, famous Pakistani-Canadian writer Mr. Tarek Fatah visited the venue. He was not invited. He went there to purchase some Urdu books. Suddenly some organisers noticed him and started heckling him with their supporters. Ultimately Police could rescue Mr. Tarek Fatah with difficulty. He was sent back to his hotel.
This is not an isolated incident. Nowadays, we can see that in every event organised by the top-level liberals of the country, those who have different views, are heckled and silenced. Same thing happened in Jaipur and in Kolkata.
Some Indians are becoming very intolerant! Members, what is your opinion in this regard?
