Senior journalist Gauri Lankesh shot dead today at her residence in Bangalore.
I prefer writers instead of astrologers to get a clue to what will happen in future. Khushwant Singh wrote this 14 years ago in his book ” The end of India ” ‘Every fascist regime needs communities groups it can demonise in order to thrive. It starts with one group or two. But it never ends there. A movement built on hate can only sustain itself by continuing creating fear and strife. Those of us today who feel secure because we are not Muslims or Christians are living in a fool’s paradise. The Sangh is already targeting leftists historians and westernised youth. Tomorrow it will turn its hate on women who wears skirts,people who eat meat, drink liquor,watch foreign films,don’t go on annual pilgrimage to temples,use toothpaste instead of dant manjan ,prefer allopathic doctors to vaids,kiss or shake hands in greeting instead of shouting Jai Shri Řàm….. No one is safe. We must realise this if hope to keep India alive.
