There's no point engaging with anyway. If Mota bhai gave them shit wrapped in paan they'd still eat it arguing there's no scientific study which conclusively proves eating shit is bad for health.

But the politically ignorant and indifferent population, that's the one who needs to be confronted.

Since 2014, Indian have witnessed the following:

1. Mob on suspicions of eating beef or transporting cattle

Follow

2. Victimisation for majoritarian appeasement through laws like triple talaq bill
3. Public calls for and rape threats for Muslim women by elected lawmakers
4. Collusion of the state in cases of localised communal riotings
5. Systematic attacks on Muslim identity and history
6. Blockade of
7. Disregard of the criminality of demolition
8. Threats of denationalization through
9. Massive and campaign to spread islamophobia

The list isn't exhaustive but it is what it is.

There's no way a population of 200 Million can be killed. As much as Savarkar fetishized Germany, that extermination is practically impossible. There are some limits to the idea of Hindu rashtra, fortunately.

But what CAB is going to do is to alienate that 200 million. Strip away their sense of belonging to this country and rupture the social fabric upon which this country was built upon.

Societies cannot be surgically operated. When you cut it open from one part, the entire body starts bleeding. There is no amputation for societies. Plus no state can establish peace by violating the social contract for 20% of its population.

The shock waves of this step have the potential to destabilise the country. It may appear audacious, but this government is digging his own grave.

Being indifferent is no longer an option.

देश कागज पर बना
नक्शा नहीं होता
कि एक हिस्से के फट जाने पर
बाकी हिस्से उसी तरह साबुत बने रहें
और नदियां, पर्वत, शहर, गांव
वैसे ही अपनी-अपनी जगह दिखें
अनमने रहें।
यदि तुम यह नहीं मानते
तो मुझे तुम्हारे साथ
नहीं रहना है।
