The biggest, most powerful and lethal weapon of political parties in Modern India is “victimhood of different communities”.
Victimhood in true sense is a feeling or a burden carried by a community.
The muslim victimhood:
One party uses the post-independence communal riots, extra-judicial killings, economic backwardness and Babri demolition to create victimhood amongst muslims. And thus the victims vote in the favor of this party.
Another party uses the 1000 years rule of muslim rulers and their rule combined with the post-independence riots apart from the terrorist attacks on religious shrines to create victimhood of Hindus. Thus, the right wingers win few votes.
Few others use the economic backwardness of few castes to create victimhood of those castes. The people from these castes vote for those who appear to be their messaiahs.
And then, the one of the oldest and finest civilization in the world turns into a divided country that is polarized with every community constantly trying to protect its own interests and destroy the interests of others.
The irony is: once these parties come to power, they focus on minting money and dividing the nation further.
In this bargain, the real issues of development and financial inclusion take a back seat.
What we fail to realize is: we are actually victims of dirty politics of these political parties that are hell bent on destroying the basic fabric of India to stay in power.
Wake up India before its too late!!!
