Blind Spot

Most people I know from Gujarat adore Narendra Modi. They praise him, they talk about how much progress has made with him in charge, they talk about his incorruptibility. They talk about the MOUs worth lakhs of crores or rupees. Yes, Gujarat certainly seems to be prospering under Mr. Modi.

But when I mention the Gujarat riots of 2002, they are offended. They think I am deliberately trying to provoke them. And it is this collective myopia that worries me.

It does not matter what the causes were, but the very fact that the massacre of hundreds of Muslims (293 Hindus were also killed), was carried out with the tacit approval of the very man who is elected to protect and serve the citizens is repugnant. With the news that the documents pertaining to the riots were destroyed, in “accordance with government procedure”,  my opinion of Mr. Modi could not sink further.

Yet, think about the roads, the industry, the commerce in Gujarat! What a champion for Hinduism Narendra Modi is! He is an inspiration. Chetan Bhagat praises him and his fans go crazy about Modi. Such are the people who are given the freedom to think for themselves and indeed, such is India where petty crime is usually overlooked and occasionally, so is murder.
