Sowing hatred does no one no goodDiscussions with a wide variety of people, across many economic classes of people revealed a very interesting thing, at least in my home State of Tamil Nadu. One particular political party that has literally highjacked the high moral position of being the defender of Hindu majority people, are hated by most people, across all religions.
The reason is simple. Hundreds of YouTube videos are now being circulated. The pathetic record of the local branch of this party is there for all to see. Tamil Nadu has got an ancient culture that transcends all religions. For example, it is very common to see hundreds of people belonging to a major minority religion, not only donating generously, but also taking part in festivals. And Hindus visit the abodes of worship of all religions and not just the temples.
The more the rhetoric from the party, the more enemies it is creating day after day. The party has done nothing for the welfare of the common man in Tamil Nadu and those at the apex of the party are seen as bullies. The kind of hatred sought to be put into public domain against the particular minority cannot work in Tamil Nadu. Corrupt they may be. But the Dravidian parties have brought massive development in Tamil Nadu. At least in 2021, one only hopes the particular party understands it's short-sightedness and makes progress by embracing all religions and all people of the country.
