The psychology of the new Hindutva terrorists

I have just received a mail, from someone claiming to be a Hindu, with the following text: Namaskar
This is an awareness drive to awake people to boycott movie 'Jodhaa Akbar'.The movie Jodhaa Akbar is a vile, vicious, and covert attempt by a mischievous producer/director from Bollywood (Mumbai) to make quick bucks by denigrating and vilifying the Hindu (Rajput) people. ...

Shameful Hindus who throng to watch Jodhaa-Akbar, a film which glorifies Hindu hater Cruel Akbar, are worthy of getting killed by Terrorists!

So, according to "Hindu Jagruti", it is now not only "Christian missionaries" and "muslim mobsters" who are to be targeted, it is also "shameful Hindus".

The definition of "shameful Hindus" is interesting: everyone who sees this film!

Today, all "non-shameful Hindus" are told to avoid watching this film (and a few others), and the paintings of M. F. Husain (and of a few others). Tomorrow we will be told what to wear and what we can think.

The aim of Hindu Jagruti and other groups like it is simple: totalitarian control.

Exactly what was sought by the German Nazis, the Italian Fascists, the Russian Marxists, the Chinese Maoists and the contemporary political right-wing in Europe and (particularly) the UK and USA. Like them all, Hindu Jagruti will also fail in its quest for totalitarian control.

However, the attitude of Hindu Jagruti is exactly equivalent to that of Muslims who wanted to target Salman Rushdie for writing THE SATANIC VERSES.

The psychology of the new Hindutva terrorist seems to me no different from the psychology of the Muslim suicide-bomber: both are so totally consumed by hatred that they are unable to see the distinction between art and history, philosophy and sociology, politics and life.

As the vast majority of Hindus around the world are "shameful Hindus" on one count or another, we had better all watch out. Sphere: Related Content
