A group of individuals, filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt, historian K.N. Panikkar and activist Shabnam Hashmi Friday strongly objected to the authoritarian attitude adopted by social reformer Anna Hazare in his fight against corruption and accused him of being affiliated to right-wing Hindu groups.
Since Congress scum-bags, the foremost amongst them being Digvijay Singh and Manish Tiwari, not to forget Liar Kapil Sibal, have been conducting an orchestrated attack, under the able patronage of Sonia Gandhi (never mind her denials, she also denied that Quattrochi got any kick-backs in Bofors!), shouldn't the right-wing Hindu groups be eulogized for supporting a movement against corruption?
But no, intellectuals in India are mentally-challenged, intellectually-deficient empty skulls who think that Hindu right-wing is more dangerous than corruption and that corruption is more dangerous than Islamic-terror; while Secularism and Socialism are benign!
So they want Mohandasian (Gandhian) policy of tolerance (read spineless surrender) and appeasement to continue. Thus they expect Anna to do the Mohandasian act. And lo and behold, he indeed has been doing that. Anna distanced himself from comments on Modi, says he is apolitical, and so on and so forth.
So what is the problem with these intellectually negligible? They are aghast at the authoritarian behavior of Anna. But what else can you expect from Anna, he being a Mohandasian, but authoritarian behavior?
Mohandas, for most part, was a highly authoritarian operator. He wanted to have the last word on everything that he put his finger in, and there are few places which were spared his finger.
Thus, Hindus were sacrificed for Muslim appeasement, Jawahar was made PM being preferred over Vallabhbhai Patel, and even earlier Subhash Chandra Bose was forced to vacate his electorally acquired President-ship of Congress in favor of a Mohandas candidate Pattabhi Sitaramaiah.
These intellectuals have never raised an eyebrow against that authoritarian performance. So why does Anna's authoritarianism peeve them? Anna is bad enough being a Mohandasian. His being authoritarian merely confirms his being a Mohandasian, and if at all, it must please these intellectuals. Or they must raise their cudgels equally against the man, rather the eunuch, himself (Mohandas).
