I’m really sorry at my huge misjudgement about Madhu Kishwar, whom I once mistook to be a classical liberal.
Apart from her extremely poorly researched and boot licking Modinama, on which I’ve commented elsewhere, she has made the following comment on twitter a few days ago:
Yes, all innocent human life is the same, and we regret its loss, but we do distinguish the loss of human life and liberty on a daily basis. Thousands die in hospitals and due to natural causes each day. Hundreds die from car accidents. We may (at best) note this loss of life. Another few hundred die from routine social crime (murders). We observe whether these are personal or family feuds or have social implications.
If family feuds, we condemn and make note but then pass on to the police for investigation and justice. Some of these murders are religion-motivated, e.g. the regular (daily) attacks by brahmins/high castes on dalits, or by some Muslims against some Hindus (the case Madhu Kishwar points out). We condemn and express outrage on any religion-motivated crime. I have done so tens of times and so have others. I have not spared any religion, nor any religious motivation for killing innocents. My condemnation is outright and scathing.
But then there are terrorist crimes and power-plays to destroy the liberty of entire societies. These are in a different league altogether, because the focus is not the destruction of a particular life or lives: the focus is destruction of liberty ACROSS THE ENTIRE SOCIETY. That is why the entire world watches such crimes and forms a moral force against such actions.
This is such a basic distinction, but Modi boot lickers like Madhu Kishwar will never see the obvious. Blind entirely to Modi’s crimes.
Lynching someone on the pretext of beef eating is UNMITIGATED TERRORISM. This is terrorism practiced by a mass organisation, called RSS and branches including Bajrang Dal and BJP.
This is the same organisation that has organised mass scale arms training to create civil war conditions in India – and spreading the most vicious lies.
Two examples below: https://www.facebook.com/sabhlok/posts/10153668479818767?pnref=story and https://www.facebook.com/sabhlok/posts/10153667107533767?pnref=story
Imagine if any Muslims were undertaking such mass sacle armed mobilisation and spreading lies that Hindus eat their wives.
Madhu – I’m sorry to say I wasted precious time on her – has become not just a bootlicking lackey of Modi and RSS, but a DIRECT ENEMY OF LIBERTY.
Has she ever condemned the MOST VICIOUS ATTACK on personal liberties by the RSS/ Modi gang? Does she support a ban on beef eating in India? Is it alright for a group of community to FORCIBLY IMPOSE their preferences on the entire country? Has she ever asked Modi to being his naked, hungry mother home?
She is now clearly aligned with the ENEMIES of India.
