Donald Trump mocks Narendra Modi and India: The US President needs a fact-check and a lesson in history
By targeting India, Trump has belittled an important ally. He has also apparently discovered the Soviet Union was fighting the 'right' war in Afghanistan, against the USA.
In mourning the murder of Inspector Subodh Kumar Singh, one should not forget the dubious role of Indian police in aiding and abetting vigilantism.
The sentiment has been 'Kabul, Delhi bhai bhai'. But Afghanistan, which is still supporting the 'good Taliban', wants Delhi to show it more love. India needs to tread a cautious path at this time.
The problem is more acute in India than in any other countries.
Unless political narratives vis-à-vis Muslims change, it will have little impact.
Remove the patronising quotes on tolerance. The former president might be confused for a sophisticated Hindutva ideologue.
If India really wants to fight the onslaught of Hindutva, it needs to break free of quasi-liberal, pretentious and hallowed discourses about inherent tolerance.
