India: A Nation of Hindu-Haters, Islamophobics, Misogynists, Feminazis

If you go by how people in India get labelled – by media or by the Twitter army – you’d be left with just 2 kinds:

  1. Sexist, misogynist, chauvinist bigots who, by and large, share a similar political ideology too, leaning towards Right. The one word used most often for this category is either “Bhakt” or “Sanghi.”
  2. Man-hater, pseudo-intellect, forever-ready-to-scream-sexism feminazis who label every man a potential rapist. Their political ideology again, curiously enough, leans heavily towards Left, and these are the people singularly responsible for the despise and disdain that the words ‘Intellectuals and liberals’ receive.

Outlook Towards Women

A “Feminazi” trait: When a man accused of sexual harassment denies the allegations aggressively, he becomes shameless liar by default; but when a woman accused of the same crime posts a tweet in denial of the accusation, she gets lauded for “fighting back the trolls and haters.” It’s a stigma to even think that woman can abuse.

A “Chauvinistic pig” trait:  For this breed, the entire #MeToo campaign was bogus and pretentious because if a woman boards a bus wearing tight pants, of course she has given you (and every other male in the bus) the consent to feel her derriere. Also, men too face abuse, so the entire outrage over woman getting raped stands invalidated. Because, logic.

Politics

“I am against movie halls playing National Anthem”

All it takes is this line for you to be labelled as anti-national, unpatriotic, insensitive-to-sacrifices-of-soldiers smug who should pack his bags and go away to Pakistan.

“The man who blew up that building belonged to an Islamic terror organization”

Woah, you just painted the entire Muslim population as terrorists! Just mention in passing that the individual behind a crime was Muslim, and liberals would go to town amplifying a misconstrued version of your statement and accuse you inciting violence against the entire Islamic community. You will be labelled a Sanghi who doesn’t realize that terror has no religion (Of course, the same people using that phrase are quick to scream “hindu terrorism” if a victim of violence/theft/fraud happens to be a Muslim by chance.

A Sanghi’s checklist for declaring you anti-national:

  • Take a Cricket loss sportingly and praise the opposition
  • Criticize a Modi policy
  • Disturbed after hearing about a rape incident, call Delhi a city not safe for women

A Liberal’s checklist for declaring you Sanghi/Bhakt/Fascist

  • A pretty exhaustive list coming up…..
