The ideology of B.J.P. can be summarised in a few words : hatred of Muslims and Christians.
The B.J.P. claims to represent the Hindus ( whose euphemism is 'cultural nationalism' or 'Hindutva'), but in fact the B.J.P. leaders and rank and file have no idea about the great Hindu intellectualism of the past
In my speech entitled ' Sanskrit as a language of Science ' ( see online and on my blog justicekatju.blogspot.in and also on the website kgfindia.com ) delivered in the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore, and thereafter in the Benaras Hindu University, I have given a glimpse of that great Hindu intellectualism.
The B.J.P. members have no idea of this, and of the real great achievements of our ancestors in the past, and instead they talk nonsense by saying that in ancient India there were aeroplanes, guided missiles, and atom bombs, or that in ancient India we knew genetic engineering or could do head transplants. Such talk only makes us a laughing stock before the whole world.
All that B.J.P. has in its ideological arsenal is hatred of minorities and the knowledge how to instigate communal tension and riots. It is an anti national party,because as I have mentioned in my article ' What is India ' ( see online and on my blog and on kgfindia.com ), India is a country of great diversity ( because it is broadly a country of immigrants, like North America ), and hence secularism and equal respect for all communities is the only path towards peace and prosperity. Whoever spreads communal hatred is an enemy of India.
