ESCHATOLOGY IN THE 21ST CENTURY: INTERFAITH AND COMPARITIVE PERSPECTIVES
#35
BJP'S NDA SWEEPING VICTORY UNDER MODI MEANS A RADICAL HINDU MAJORITARIAN FUNDAMENTALIST NATIONALIST GOVERNMENT TAKES POWER FOR THE NEXT 5 YEARS. THE RESEARCH OF HAQEEQAT TV IS SPOT ON AND SHOWS THAT THIS RESULT WHICH ELIMINATES ANY SERIOUS OPPOSITION MUST HAVE BEEN WITH A LITTLE HELP FROM CIA/MOSSAD AND THE INDIAN DEEP STATE'S HACKING OF ELECTRONIC VOTING MACHINES. AS INDIAN SECULARISM IS DEAD IT NOW REMAINS TO BE SEEN HOW THIS PLAYS OUT. PRIME MINISTER NARENDRA MODI IS THE FIRST NON CONGRESS PRIME MINISTER TO RETURN TO POWER AFTER A FULL FIVE YEAR TERM. THE BHARATIYA JANATA PARTY (BJP) WON 303 OF THE 542 SEAT UP FROM 282 IT HAD WON IN 2014. THE BJP LED NATIONAL DEMOCRATIC ALLIANCE (NDA) HAS WON 352 SEATS. THE RULING PARTY FOUGHT ON ISSUES OF NATIONAL SECURITY AND A HARDLINE HINDU AGENDA. HE PLAYED THE ANTI-PAKISTAN AND ANTI-MUSLIM CARDS AND WON. THIS WAS EXPLOITING THE WEAKNESS IN THE INDIAN ELECTORATE. IT HAS LED TO MODI WINNING BUT WILL INDIA WHICH IS AN UNION OF FEDERAL STATES WIN OR DISINTEGRATE UNDER THE COSH OF HINDU EXTREMIST NATIONALISTS. NON INDIANS NEED TO REALISE HIS PARTY'S ROOTS IN THE RSS LIES IN IMITATING THE GERMANY NAZI PARTY IN THE 1920S AND THAT HIS SPIRITUAL MENTOR WAS THE SAME GROUP THAT ASSASSINATED GANDHI THE FATHER OF MODERN INDIA. INDEED ONE HAS TO SERIOUSLY RAISE THE QUESTION WHETHER WE ARE SEEING THE RISE OF HINDU NAZISM AND AN INDIAN HITLER? AS THE POWDER KEG OF KASHMIR SIMMERS THERE IS NOW A REAL DANGER OF THE PROPHESISED GHAZWA I HIND BETWEEN INDIA AND PAKISTAN. ALSO HOW WILL INDIAN MINORITIES VIEW THIS TYRANNY OF THE MAJORITY? THE PAKISTAN ARMY AND NATION NEEDS TO BE ON ALERT FOR WAR. MORE ON THIS WILL FOLLOW.

MODI WON. HAS INDIA?

MODI’S repeat landslide victory has taken India by storm and the world by surprise. It is not a good omen for India and its neighbourhood, unless Modi demonstrates an ability to rise above himself and beyond the Hindutva vision of the RSS. Vajpayee displayed an inclination in this regard. But Modi is more limited. He may now be inclined to see himself as the embodiment and validation of Hindutva. Arguably, this might provide him the space to reinterpret the Hindutva ideology, narrative and vision in a more inclusive and rational politics. As of now, this appears less likely than ever.

Accordingly, one is tempted to say the RSS has won but India has lost. Hindutva as a fascist, communal, irrational and vengeful ideology can never provide India a basis on which to emerge as a credible great power in the 21st century. As a lunatic fringe movement it was a phenomenon common to all political societies. But as a lunatic mainstream ideology it will degrade India’s future and threaten regional and possibly global stability.

The Chinese revolution was impelled by a passion never to allow another ‘century of humiliation’ that lasted from the opium wars to liberation. Maoism and post-Maoism provided the vehicles for the success of this historic undertaking, despite many policy errors, upheavals and setbacks. India, under the RSS, runs the risk of exhausting itself in a highly organised but morbid obsession with a ‘millennium of humiliation’ under Muslim rule. This obsession today provides a convenient political cover for a corrupt, corporate and violent elitist state.

As a lunatic mainstream ideology Hindutva will degrade India’s future.

It has led to the tragic defeat of a progressive and secular dream — which may have been more aspiration or even pretence than reality — by an atavistic and obscurantist nightmare. This throwback is mindlessly supported by a deliberately deprived and exploited population whose frustrations are manipulated and channelled in directions against their own interests. The RSS, the Sangh Pariwar, the BJP and Modi embody this political malignancy.

Just as the US is dangerously degenerating under the malignant presidency of Trump, similarly under a hidebound and inevitably dysfunctional Hindutva, India will degenerate unless it finds a way out of its current ideological morass. Unsurprisingly, the major flaw in Modi’s massive victory was the BJP’s inability to win a seat in the Kashmir Valley.

Indian pollsters embarrassed themselves again. In 2004 they overestimated the electoral appeal of ‘Shin­ing India’. Now they underestimated the impact of a military misadventure, presented as a glorious mil­i­­­t­ary triumph by a pathetically hysterical and ma­­n­­­­i­p­ulated Indian media, on the electoral outcome. According to Indian author and analyst, Siddhartha Deb, “Five years of Modi at the helm have not delivered in any way. India is a shambles in every possible way. And yet the Indian majority has voted for Modi again, and clearly not based on growth or economic development, but on majoritarianism and the promise of more violence.”

How come? Modi exploited the several fault lines in Indian society and managed to electorally present major issues confronting India into an emotional Hindu versus Muslim and India versus Pakistan issue. He cleverly exploited Pulwama and Balakot. Moreover, 21st-century social media and fake news technologies have enormously enhanced establishment capacities to manufacture and mould public opinion against the public interest. Deb notes that Modi’s control over India’s middle classes enormously helped in this regard. In addition, Indian corporations “contributed as much as 12 times more money to the BJP than to those of the other six national parties combined, amounting to 93 per cent of all corporate donations.”

Similar criticisms can apply to Pakistan, the US and other ‘democratic’ countries. Like India, they are not really democracies; they are corporate, praetorian, or plutocratic systems in which elected representatives and cabinets represent establishment and elite institutional interests that facilitate and finance their electoral campaigns. Parliamentarians no longer represent constituency or voter interests. Such systems are not just imperfect developing democracies; they are authoritarian and ‘extractive’ systems in democratic disguise.

Where do India-Pakistan relations go from here? There are broadly two views about a triumphant Modi’s likely attitude towards Pakistan. One sees him as seeing Pakistan as illegitimately torn from the womb of Bharat Mata and which now, in recalcitrant fashion, stands in the way of India realising its destiny as the regional hegemon in South Asia. Acco­r­dingly, he will seek to teach Pakistan a lesson in strategic decorum. He will, therefore, avail of a whole array of bilateral and international options to exert escalating and unrelenting pressure on Pak­istan, short of all-out war, to conform to India’s will.

Alternately, a supremely confident Modi, faced with a Pakistan already on the ropes, may choose a number of subtler options to ‘influence’ Pakistan in the ‘right direction’. These may include resuming informal, and later, structured dialogue and progressively allowing a range of movement in the bilateral relationship. In return, Modi would expect Pakistan to ‘behave’ with regard to Kashmir (including a possible resumption of back-channel negotiations and permanently ending cross-LoC militant activities; terrorism (including meeting FATF requirements and dismantling alleged terrorist structures, safe havens and services; and ‘deference’ towards Indian strategic interests in Afghanistan and the region. Modi will eventually expect Pakistan to maintain a ‘balance’ in its relations with China and India, which should ‘contextualise’ its participation in CPEC.

There is broad consensus that the prime minister has handled relations with India with aplomb, especially during the recent conflict. At the June SCO Summit he is likely to meet Modi. This will be a crucial opportunity to set course for a principled and realistic relationship that will inevitably be defined by differences and challenges, but hopefully also opportunities. Such a meeting, even if informal and brief, will require political consultations at home and meticulous preparations including detailed consultations with New Delhi. If Modi’s diplomacy remains obdurate and uncompromising, Pakistan’s diplomacy should present a study in principled contrast. If Modi is more accommodating, Pakistan should not shy away from probing possibilities for a principled longer-term relationship.
