When being liberal becomes illiberal.
This was my answer to the question: “Is tik tok destroying Indian culture?”
What is the culture?
If 9 people out of 10 do something stupid, then stupidness is the culture. Banning this or that is talibani attitude.
Why watch tiktok or install it at all. I haven’t watched it’s full advertisement on you tube even once. If you are watching it to the last, then you like it and it is your culture.
Problem is hypocrisy. You are moved by whatever is out there and having no control over your self, yet with an holier than thou attitude demand banning this or that.
No two human beings have equal taste or mind. May be some people enjoy prurient content. So be it. Why judge other people?
Having said that, I would like to disable it’s forced advertisement on me. If banning is bad so is forcing it through advertisement.
As regards the culture, please note that the zeal to maintain it led to 800 years of servitude of India as a nation. Those in power, thought they could impose culture with the help of barbarians. A contradiction of terms.
Why it has been collapsed by Quora?
It doesn’t matter. What is interesting is advocating free speech is against Quora policy. So being liberal is not being liberal. It is a strange time in which champagne socialist run social media and help muzzle free speech talking anything even remotely Chinese.
Though I had missed one point in above answer. Graphic depiction of violence and promotion of criminal act on tik tok is abetment of offence and is against the laws of India. It moderators do not bar such content from tik tok, it has to be banned for promoting crime.
Citizenship Amendment Act grant accelerated citizenship to persecuted minorities from three neighbouring countries. It reduces the period of naturalization from 12 years to 6 years. Yet this limited measure of concession is being protested by only one community in India that is Muslims. Why?
The answer to the question keeps changing. At first it was blame that there is a disinformation campaign in which it was rumoured that Muslims for being stripped of their citizenship and would be thrown out of country. Outrageous lie it maybe, but the fact it was accepted by any muslim Indian is ludicrous.
There are protest at Shaheen Bagh a predominantly Muslim locality in Delhi who have obstructed important highway for now about 70 days causing thousands of commuters several hours of additional driving everyday.
To top it all three characters have entered the fray. Naseeruddin Shah is a famous movie actor who was in a kind of lead role in recent movie called Tashkent files. Next is Munawwar Rana the poet who is famous for is Urdu couplet on ‘Mother’ next is a former President of Aligarh Muslim University Student Union. The first two characters were subtle but the last one was candid about the motivation for protest. Before advertising to these characters latest first look back and see what happened last year.
The year of 2019:
Good Politics or Bad Politics:
So finally the rioting has stopped. Yesterday was Friday yet no stone pelting and no burning of vehicles took place. In Bulandshahar Muslim clergy come forward and paid for the damage caused to public property. At other at other places the process of recovery of damages is on. A large number of rioters are in prison.
Last 10 days were days of turmoil in BJP ruled states in the Central India. Last 10 days have seen many political moves both on the left and right of the spectrum. Who was playing good politics and who was playing bad politics?
Do Holloween scare you?
What if monsters actually exist?
There is a monster country which is very successfully hiding it’s monster deeds for decades but the world knows it or will know it eventually. Can you guess it’s name?
People are afraid to hang up it’s flag in any country except those who are paid to do so. The citizens of this Holloween country hide their citizenship when abroad. When they open restraunt abroad, they call it Indian Cuisine restaurant. Any guess now?
In it’s arrogance towards it’s own citizens, it lost half of its Country in 1971. The lost new country has higher foreign reserve and per capita income then the Holloween country.
It is estimated that it killed half a million people in 1947 and again a million people from 1947 to 1971 and again about a quarter of a million from 1971 to date. All its own citizens.
Holloween country fought four wars with its neighbour and lost all and therefore now it sends proxy terrorists to satiate it’s hatred.
Holloween country is mothership of terrorism in the world and every single terrorist attack anywhere in the world is linked to it directly or indirectly.
In 1947 it kicked out half a million citizens by attacking/confiscating their wealth and most of these people settled in New Delhi whose gdp today is about 110 billion dollars. GDP of Holloween country is about 300 billion dollars. Two top cities of this monstrous place together do not have combined GDP of 100 billions dollar. (Karachi is 64 billion, Lahore 35)
Any person of any country who visits this country is stripped searched at most airports but especially in USA. It’s prominent citizen explained the pain of carrying it’s passport:
The citizens of this Holloween Country are so competent that they can carry four legged animal on a two-weelar. See:
For it’s neighbours, every day is Holloween.
Rest of the world may enjoy Holloween for a day.
Triple Talaq has finally been prohibited under a punishment of 3 years of imprisonment. The parliament had enacted and President of India has enacted Muslim Women (Protection of Rights on Marriage) Bill, 2019.
Politician is a creature least troubled by truth and morality. If a certain vote bank believed that sky is red, a willing politician can try to convince the whole world that sky is red and those who see it as blue have some defect in eye.
Similar action is contemplated by some politicians in respect of triple Talaq.
