Back in 2009, I had a conversation with my father about why Sonia Gandhi is giving away the crown she apparently had worked so hard to wear. My father, a middle class man in his 50's and otherwise very astute political analyst, had no convincing explanation. Perhaps he along with the nation was bought in to the theory that Sonia Gandhi is being very kind to keep the PM post open for more deserving senior Congress leader. So much was the disappointment of seeing Saffron party loose that election that I left that question unanswered then.
Despite the next general election being faaaaar away, through one of the twitter discussions this question popped up again. This time I made some attempt. Read the Indian citizenship act to find out if what Mr. Swamy is preaching in this following video is true or not..
Well, certainly I will not answer what I found in the act. It is for YOU, the alert and concerned citizen to pick the book/website and read and do some fact finding. What I want to talk about is utter failure of BJP(Bharatiya Janta Party) and every other party that sits in the Loksabha as 'opposition' to bring the relevant act details to the concerned aam admi. BJP's brouhaha back in 2009 over Sonia Gandhi's anticipated election as PM candidate by Congress party was ineffective and quickly lost steam in the eyes of middle class simply because this class, which you and me belongs to, believes more in facts and rules as we are 'very' law abiding people. Had BJP been able to share this 'info' with the people, they cud have spared themselves from hurting their throats and earning more respect as a by-product. After all a Harvard graduate (and present lecturer there) who had been ex-union law minister of our nation won't be leveling baseless claims without his homework, would he?

Perhaps nothing illustrates the extreme prejudice and visceral hatred this administration harbors towards Hindus quite like this video. A senior Congress leader and designated mentor to the crown Prince, no less, mercilessly kicking an would be shoe attacker. That video basically sums up what Congress would do to us, given a chance.
As we have been saying for quite sometime, what we have here is not mere hardball politics, we have long transitioned into a different ballgame. From mere socio-economic re-engineering, we have transitioned into genocidal territory.
The completely needless and strategically foolish police action of last Saturday when a battalion of handpicked Delhi Police converged in on the Ramlila grounds, where tens of thousands of devotees, as many as half of them women and children, had already retired for the night, was designed to inflict casualties - which it did. Up to a 100 people were injured, many of them critically. A woman still remains comatose. The fact that it did not result in a stampede is a miracle in itself and perhaps speaks for the discipline and self-restraint of the devotees. The police had fired so many teargas shells that beat journos had irritation and tears in their eyes until late next morning.
This operation had to be authorized at the highest levels. No one at a lower level who would have the gumption to order a lathi charge and teargas shelling in a tent containing so many women and children.
