Patels' OBC status demand: How the movement upsets Modi and BJP's Hindutva equation

The contradiction between Hindutva and ideas of social justice is embodied in Modis personality. He is the Hindu Hriday Samrat. He has also become an OBC leader, largely because he harped on it to harvest votes in Bihar and Uttar Pradesh. It is because of these two attributes of his that the BJP succeeded in mustering a majority in the Lok Sabha on its own. #Gujarat #BJP #Narendra Modi #ConnectTheDots #Hindutva #OBC #Patel #reservation politics #Patels #Hardik Patel #Quota system in India #Hindu ideology

It's not about Kashmir Like UPA, PM Modi is on the wrong track with Pakistan

Pakistan's creation as an ideological state based on religion and in opposition to India makes it a genetically defective nation-state, as on Pakistani journalist notes. Our strategy needs to deal with this reality, not the romance of peace. #HowThisWorks #Terrorism #The Neighbourhood #Zia-ul-Haq #Muhammad Iqbal #India-Pakistan Ties #islamic-state #Religion as Ideology

There has been a marked Rightward shift in the political centre of gravity after the recent election. However, the rash use of terms such as Thatcherite and neo-liberal may not suffice to describe the new phenomenon in India. The ideological orientation of the Indian Right is forever a work in progress - as it is for the Right in any country. #World #BJP #Narendra Modi #Modi #Ideology #Right wing #Left #Right #FreeIndia #neo liberal #Thatcherism

Between the state and markets: AAP's inherent and tragic design flaw

Political space in Delhi or the national level is likely to be reclaimed by parties that gyrate to the modern day demands of political economy'; not the converse. The Aam Aadmyi party then is likely to be a flash in the pan phenomenon. This will be a pity. #Elections #Delhi #Arvind Kejriwal #Taxation #Ideology #Aam Aadmi Party
