" Be Good and Do Good "
This hatred is being shown in social media and also in sites like ISC. There is no pointwise good or bad discussion is not there. The discussion will be purely based on the individual's affiliation only.
Do not understand what is the need of shouting or yelling if you do not agree with the other people's thought, or even if they are saying something wrong. Will yelling change the attitude of other person or can it bring them to peace? I never understand such senseless debates.
A positive attitude will lead to positive results.

Even this challenging situation would ease
I think this feeling of hate, more than hate I feel it would be better to term it as intolerance, is the direct result of the entry of force as an element in the Indian political and social scenario today. The hidden agenda of considering all those who speak against the ideology of the ruling party at the center as being against national interests or even as anti-nationals or, as it is put subtly, liberals is directly or indirectly responsible for the situation.
Humans in general like to enjoy freedom in matters concerning them as individuals or even as social beings (subject to the limitations as a member of the society). So, when they feel that the element of force or coercion is creeping into their personal lives, I think it is quite natural to feel insecure and that feeling of insecurity turns into a feeling of hate. The other side of the coin is that there is another group which hates all those who are against their way of thinking. The end result is that people have started becoming less tolerant towards each other and there is a passive attempt on every side to ensure that their thoughts and actions are not infringed.
This is one of the reason, I feel, why discussions on political or social issues, in the media or even on social sites, are becoming too personal and then there is a passive disliking for each other. Let me be frank in saying that we did have many political parties earlier too but there was a mutual respect for each other at least among the leaders. But things are different now. The mutual respect is almost lost and we can see them competing like school going students; the attitude has crept into the lower level which was already in the hot zone. Let us hope that things will change for the better.

And it's definitely not hatred in ISC, because we hardly know anyone in real life. A person can pose to be anything on internet. There are a lot of irrelevant, absurd and provoking responses appearing nowadays. People share words and scold each other in responses too. But that's still not hatred. It's more like "I can't stand this person".
When was trash-talking not a part of politics? Politicians from the beginning of time have been trash-talking oppositions. Maybe your'e finding an increase in these debates because a lot of things happened this year. So the leading party is bound to criticism.
The stronger a light shines the darker are the shadows around it.
If we try to analyse this, we see especially after demise of the stalwarts like Nehru, Patel, Rajendra babu and others who belonged to freedom struggle, the quality of politics started deteriorating. Some unscrupulous politicians started thinking of taking advantage of power. These parochial politicians started taking advantage of parochial issues instead of national issues . We saw rise of caste based politics. This started dividing the spirit of integrity.
Now some political parties are taking advantage of religion to polarise the voters for their advantage. It is observed all over the world that religious fanaticism breeds intolerance and hatred. We are experiencing this on rise. We have to be cautious of this to save our country
