India wants to become a ‘superpower’ yet its social and physical environment is so filthy that it stinks to the sky. Garbage, and human and animal waste litter its streets. People urinate and defecate everywhere. Filth and India have become synonymous.
The coronavirus is spreading rapidly in India making it the epicenter of the global pandemic. Most people hold Prime Minister Narendra Modi directly responsible for the crisis by his irresponsible conduct and policies. He has also lost support among the people.
Two years ago, when Indian troops were attacked near Pulwama in Indian occupied Kashmir, Delhi blamed it on militants from Pakistan. Recent revelations in some Indian media outlets have exposed the Modi regime’s complicity. It had advance knowledge of the attack but chose not to prevent it in order to boost its electoral chances in the April 2019 elections.
Independent investigative journalists have exposed India’s massive disinformation campaign against Pakistan spanning 15 years. Delhi’s operatives have used dormant NGOs, fake media outlets and even resurrected dead individuals to advance its nefarious agenda.
Indian spices and other food products have created a niche market worldwide but are consumers especially in the Muslim world and the West aware of what these products contain? Most of these products are laced with cow urine and dung. Consumers beware!
Alongside the Coronavirus, another virus—Hindutva—is raging across India. But unlike the coronavirus, the Hindutva virus does not cripple those afflicted by it; instead, it leads them to target minorities especially Muslims in India.
India has always used Bollywood to project its soft-power but of late, it has turned even more sinister: it has become a tool to spread poisonous propaganda against Muslims. The anti-Muslim pogroms currently underway in India are a clear reflection of this phenomenon.
