Tolerating dissent is as important as fundamental rights areSometime ago, a famous Carnatic expert, whose passion for this form of deeply spiritual and heart warming music, has been branded as "anti national" by some forces who have a particular brand of their philosophy thinking and action. These forces are absolutely irrational and outright stupid when they claim that there should only be one religion, one language and even one party. They go to the ridiculous extent of banishing the Congress party or many of its leaders as " anti national". This is as ridiculous as it gets.
Similarly another famous Carnatic musician was also termed "anti national" just because he sang some songs in praise of Jesus Christ. Is this not absolutely stupid? Was Jesus Christ not a great spiritual leader? Are there no good points about Christianity?
The country's finest institutions like St Stephens New Delhi,Loyola Chennai, St.Xavier s Mumbai have been serving the nation far better than anyone else. All dissenting voices supporting artists are sought to be drowned in the "anti national" narrative.
Should we not put an end to this sort of stupidity?
