I could not understand the simile. Anyway, without going into flimsy arguments, I would try to read between the lines. In this thread, the issue of killing of RSS workers in Kerala is raised. The tread gives emphasis on who started this violence. The seculars and liberals are blamed. Gandhi and Marx are also dragged into the issue.
At the outset, I want to submit that the names of dead people like Gandhi and Marx should have not to be dragged in this issue. Since they have nothing to do with this issue and secondly they cannot defend their sides. Even in courts, the names of dead people are deleted irrespective of being an accused or witness.
Yesterday, I was seeing an interview of a stalwart communist leader (no need to take the name). The leader also gave the number of communist workers killed by RSS and BJP. I wonder how these politicians are shining their sinister politics on the number of the killed workers of their parties. They do not have issues of unemployment, sinking economy and other core issues directly concerned to the common voters who voted these shameless politicians into power. Instead of going into the root cause of such killings, leftist and rightist are counting the heads of killed people. In other words they are justifying such killings. Many sociologist claim that these killings have a long history and it is the outcome of a competition of getting strong hold in dominant castes. This clearly shows the kind of politics they have for their voters and the country.
A true secular keeps religion out of state affairs and he is naturally benevolent to other religions. The rising power of rightist who encourage cow vigilantism, moral policing and dictating people on issues of food habits etc is owing to the appeasement of minorities and castes by so called seculars. These politicians are fanatics in disguise of secularism. Such seculars are equally dangerous as religious fundamentalists.
As a true Indian, I condemn all sorts of killings including the killings by cow vigilantes. Parties are segregating them as per their followings, I, as an Indian, see them as my countrymen. I would appeal to both the ruling parties to stop this and set an example of peace and harmony.
