We can critique Gandhi, but not Mother Teresa's sainthood? Free speech anyone?

In "liberal" English language media's Idea of India (it's more likely the Idea of India International Centre, where these fake "liberals" hang out), the Mahatma can be critiqued but rubbishing "Saint" Teresa is "communal". #Gandhi #Salman Rushdie #Amartya Sen #InMyOpinion #Loksatta #MF Husain #Ambedkar #Sangh #Wendy Doniger #Mahishasura #Abrahamic

Remark on Emergency, Satanic Verses: Why Chidambaram is likely to escape reprimand from Congress

Why is the senior Congress leader P Chidambaram not likely to be reprimanded by the party high command for his remarks on the imposition of Emergency in 1975 and the ban on Salman Rushdie’s controversial book The Satanic Verses in 1988? If the Congress leaders are to be believed, the party is neither worried nor embarrassed by the former finance minister’s statement made on 28 November at the Times LitFest in Delhi. #Salman Rushdie #P.
