As an Indian deeply committed to democracy in India, not the theocracy that will sink every one of us in the end, I hope and pray that the people of Delhi have voted for AAP. We will wait for the results. Whatever the outcome of Delhi Elections, we have to live with it.
We need a strong opposition to keep the government on its toes, and at least somewhat accountable. Fascism takes root when the government has huge majority and huge mandate; it is the most dangerous thing for a nation to give full powers to a single party.
Radicals no matter where they raise their ugly heads simply destroy the nations – it’s happening in Iraq, and Syria, and gaining ground in Pakistan. None of us want India to become a theocracy like theirs, we want to be a nation of free people and not to be ruled by a bunch of idiots who who tell us what we can drink, eat, wear or believe.
Those radicals who think Hindutva *** Government is the way to go, will severely regret a few years down the road, and will say;
First they came for Muslims,
we didn’t care, we were not Muslims;
Then they came for Christians,
we rejoiced, we were not Christians;
Then they came for Sikhs,
we did not care, they were not Hindus;
And finally they turned it on us,
They wanted us to be obedient dogs,
and there was no one left to defend us.
The only reason I wish AAP wins is not because I like them, but I like our democracy to win and India to win. The vote would be a reminder to Modi to bring humility in governance and let the ahankar go.
*** Hindutva is a political ideology similar to Islamists. It is neither Hindu nor Hinduism in character, just as Islamist are neither Islam nor Muslim.
