Where is our nation heading? A nation whose national emblem contains the statement "Satyameva Jayate" meaning: Truth alone Triumphs!
The Gujarat CM has shown himself in highly parochial light by banning a book on Mohandas, merely because it brings to light certain inconvenient facts about him, that is Mohandas, who has been made to our beloved nation, what Sonia Gandhi presently is to Congress!
So Mohandas is so highly above any scrutiny that if inconvenient facts come out about his persona then the facts must be denied, suppressed or done away with. No wonder that we have become a nation of blind-followers!
What a strange nation we are! You can't write facts about Mohandas, you can't write facts about Jawahar, you can't write facts about Islam; but we claim that we are a nation who owe allegiance to Truth! Satyameva Jayate! Can anything be a bigger farce than this? Is it a wonder that Mohandas is claimed to be a Saint, Jawahar a Visionary, and Islam a Religion of Peace?
This in a country where just about a century ago, a fire brand monk roared, "Truth does not pay homage to any society, ancient or modern. Society has to pay homage to Truth or die."
Just a few days ago I cautioned regarding Mr. Modi, who is touted to be a far-right-Hindu-Nationalist, that Modi is not a right-winger. He is another left of center politician. And he has exhibited exactly this by his speech-control action.
