Pre BJP. A country where #MohdRafi sang:
Sukh ke sab Saathi
Ishwar Allah tero naam
Tune mujhe bulaya

#FerozeKhan is told he has no right to teach Sanskrit because he is a Muslim.
The dictator can invest in making
convincing state propaganda, censoring independent media, co-opting the elite, or equipping police to repress attempted uprisings—but he must finance such spending at the expense of the public’s living standards. Incompetent dictators can survive as long as economic shocks are not too large.
How Modern Dictators Survive:
An Informational Theory of the New Authoritarianism
-Sergei Guriev, Daniel Treisman
Dictators survive not because of their use of force or ideology but because they convince the public—rightly or wrongly—that they are competent.
Citizens do not observe the dictator’s type but infer it from signals inherent in their living standards, state propaganda, and messages sent by an informed elite via independent media.
If citizens conclude that the dictator is incompetent, they overthrow him in a revolution.

Noseless Voldemort has taken control of the ministry of magic and the institution is under siege. Students have drawn their wands out and are fighting death eaters on the school premises.
While all this happens the likes of Rita Skeeter are filling the media with lies about Harry and his friends, spreading rumours, maligning names, and creating confusion in the minds of the magical community.
All the while the likes of Dolores Umbridge try to alter curricula and create a generation of young wizards and witches loyal to Voldemort.

It appears that regimes that damage/destroy/ignore their sensors and reject accurate feedback will bring about their own failure and collapse.
Blocking information flows destroys the self-correction mechanisms of complex systems.

#ElectoralBonds: Modi's Office directed the finance ministry to break its own rules to approve the special & illegal sale of electoral bonds shortly before critical elections in Karnataka, Chhattisgarh, Madhya Pradesh, Mizoram, Rajasthan & Telangana.
By May 2019, more than Rs 6,000 crore worth of electoral bonds had been sold and secretly donated to political parties. It is likely that the party in power, BJP, garnered most of the money.
There are facts and there are manufactured truth that are normalized by repetition and indifference- a strategy that successive govts have deployed to control narratives coming out of and around Kashmir.
Doesn't the Opposition counter question? #Kashmir
