#SeditionDebate: An open letter from an Indian ultra-nationalist

Dear seditionist,

The recent attacks on journalists and professors at Patiala Court, and the arrest of Kanhaiya Kumar, the Jawaharlal Nehru University Student Union president on charges of criminal conspiracy and sedition are justified. We live in a democracy, which is the dictatorship of the majority and the Hindutva politics defines our ‘India of India’ which cannot be debated. Arguments, dialectics, and discussions or Right to Dissent do not figure out in our vocabulary or verbatim because Freedom of Speech and Expression, if endowed in a country like India, can have jeopardising results, especially because our ‘India of India’ is so fragile and petty student politics can be an insult to our Mother.
Yes, when Arnab Goswami rebukes student leaders from JNU and refers to them as more dangerous than ‘Maoists and terrorists’, we stand with him. After all, we do not want to get into the discourse of what Maoism is or what fuels terrorism, because we are so nationalistic about the JNU protests that nothing else matters. Most certainly not holding a dialogue with secessionists in Nagaland, for instance. Or Pakistan, despite Pathankot. But a fake tweet from Hafeez Sayeed supporting JNU students can get our blood boiling.

Our private educational institutions to which you obtain admissions by paying lakhs are better than these central universities with tuition fees of less than Rs 250 because, at least, those institutions have no ideology to speak of. They don’t oppose or mark an event. Kashmir and Afzal Guru do not matter. That is what we call discipline and education. And reasoning. And being reasonable. Not this hullabaloo created by this so-called ‘left student political parties’. Anyway, what are they? Their parent parties – CPI or CPM – hardly matter in the national scheme of things. Wasn’t the collapse of USSR a lesson for them?

Let’s now turn to JNU. It’s an institute which enjoys renown for siding with those battling for Mother Russia rather than the sons of Bharat Mata. It has allied itself with the Chinese, Naxals, LeT, LeT, JeM, and going by intelligence gleaned from twitter, Daesh, the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, Jama’atul Mujahideen Bangladesh, and Arundhati Roy.

It’s true that they aren’t all entirely seditious. But it is an established fact that certified anti-nationalists and potential morons form a significant percentage of their population. We must, at this point, recall what Moscovici said about the minority influencing the majority. That percentage of the population at JNU which speaks of freedom and spouts Bismil Azimabadi must be suppressed.

All of which leads me to believe that the government must shut down JNU, stop subsidies to this nest of treason. No more subsidies to the anti nationals: JNU room rent at Rs 11 a month, annual fee of Rs 219 (in two instalments), mess bills subsidised. Enough is enough. Stop feeding on my money.

These parasites would do well to remember that our government is our God. That the right to dissent isn’t absolute. No right is. Only the right is.

Bharat Mata ki Jai!
