The violent Indian. A Secretary to the Government and a “liberal”. But what about freedom of speech and occupation?

Both are self-explanatory. Both arise from the doormat issue. I’m examining the latter – since the said person has sworn to defend liberty by joining FTI. I’m trying to get the person to reverse his public stance.

The first – a threat of “peril” – now that’s something. What peril? I’m assuming some violence? Or use of government force (i.e. gun/ law – same thing)

Second one, from a “liberal”

Who is the scoundrel who manufactured those doormats in the first place?

Amazon might have had a lousy screening process, which couldn’t check which vendor was placing what product on its platform for sale. There is now a debate over whether Foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj went overboard in condemning Amazon and threatening it with cancellation of visas of its officials. The company hasn’t tendered an unconditional apology despite the threat. Whether that has affected the stature of the FM is secondary. She responded to the political urge of being seen on the side of outraged nationalists. Her usual, prompt responsiveness has been established again. We appreciate the politician while we may have different views on the conduct of the minister in her.

My question is to the divided house of nationalists. Forget what Sushma Swaraj did or did not do. What are you doing? Identify the manufacturer(s) of the doormats who attempted a desecration of our National Flag.

A Google search shows “Prop It Up” is a brand whose firm is based in Northeastern Minneapolis of the United States. And no, Amazon is not the only platform where it’s selling its stuff. It’s on Flipkart, Snapdeal, eBay and a host of sites and apps that mainly sell furniture and furnishings like Urban Ladder, Pepperfry, etc. मार-मार के भर्ता बना दो सालों का! Can you, NRI/OCI/PIO nationalists? बाक़ी देश में हम amazon dot in से निपट लेंगे।

Sorry people, I spoke too soon. Dhruva Rathee is a hardcore socialist.

Following on from my post here.

Thanks to a couple of people who alerted me to his general political views – here.

I’m afraid this is really disappointing. Just as I was beginning to think we may have a sensible person in India, turns out he is just like the rest of them. He may not be a rabid RSS fanatic, but he’s equally bad. I hope people like him learn some good policy in this lifetime, else India is RUINED. Totally ruined.

ANYWAY – let me try to connect to him.

American and Canadian flag doormats are a sign of patriotism. India shows its true colours (stupidity) again.

The Indian Foreign Minister has behaved most churlishly and stupidly by taking offence at the sale of doormats with Indian flag colours.

The fact is that Amazon doesn’t just sell doormats of Indian flags, it sells doormats of AMERICAN, CANADIAN and BRITISH flags, as well (among many others).

CANADIAN FLAG DOORMAT

AMERICAN FLAG DOORMAT

BRITISH FLAG DOORMAT

Now, these doormats are seen as a badge of patriotism.

The idea that the Indian flag can’t be used as a doormat is unconstitutional. It violates freedom of expression. People may wish to use the Indian flag in any way they wish – as a sign of their patriotism.

And even if they wilfully wish to defile it, that’s a birth right they have.

We must fight against this extreme stupidity of the Indian government.

My further Facebook post. PATRIOTS ENGAGE WITH THEIR FLAG IN ALL POSSIBLE WAYS. THE IDEA THAT A DOORMAT (WHICH DOES SERVE AN IMPORTANT PURPOSE) IS SOMEHOW A WAY TO DEMEAN THE FLAG IS PURE NONSENSE. TO ME THIS SOUNDS LIKE BRAHAMINICAL DISTASTE FOR THE DALIT. A KIND OF INBUILT HATRED FOR THE FEET.
