As the world moves towards a more progressive and peaceful era, India under the Modi regime is moving backwards with its fascist policies. Indian Home Minister Amit Shah, a name well-known for spreading Hindutva-driven fascism and false information about India’s “successful strikes” against Pakistan and boastful yet empty claims and threats that India will destroy and annihilate Pakistan, has spoken once again. The fascist minister whose whole personality is about spewing hate towards Pakistan says that if India’s borders are disturbed, a befitting reply will be given to Pakistan and by befitting he probably means another failed strike such as that where an Indian fighter pilot was caught, served tea and sent back to India in a very befitting manner.
His statements are extremely provocative and irresponsible as rightfully pointed out by the Pakistani foreign office. The BJP-RSS romance is only destroying peace within India and regionally. It is crystal clear by now that India has become the hub of human rights violations and to keep the spotlight away from its crimes against humanity, it has moved towards spewing vile venom towards Pakistan. It is extremely sad to see that the ruling party in India is still relying on the politics of hate towards their not so hostile neighbour to win over the masses. In the past few years, Pakistan has gone out of the way to keep peace in the region. However, India has time and again transgressed the boundaries and will keep on doing so as long as fascism is the key ideological factor in Indian politics.
Amit Shah portrays the relationship between India and Pakistan like that of a homewrecker that is Pakistan who wants to destroy the peace and quiet of a loving couple that is India. It seems as if the minister lives in a Star Plus drama as often the statements and remarks passed by the man have a dramatic flair to them but it so happens that whatever propaganda comes out of his mouth, like that of the surgical strike, is rubbished soon after. It is high-time that India reforms its policies and gets rid of this fascist, inhumane ideology before the rot reaches its core. It must be understood that to light someone else’s house on fire when yours is burning does not help anybody, it only takes down both parties. Therefore, instead of throwing hands with Pakistan, India should fix what is happening in it.
