Suraksha, samvruddhi, sushashan, swaraj.
Security, development, good governance.
Those are nice words to pout in the air-conditioned comforts of our TV studios while wringing your hands. In the heat and dust of the electoral battleground, hate—mad, blinding, blood-curdling hate—is the foundation on which the pillars of modern democracy are being laid; cemented and cured by the blood of innocent thousands, with the contractors cheering on wildly.
In response to the BJP’s Ananth Kumar Hegde‘s contemputous boast that it was sufficient if Hindus alone cast their votes in his favour, the Congress’s Kagodu Thimmappa has done a Varun Gandhi, threatening to cut off those who talk of Hindutva.
As Malcolm Muggeridge said:
“We like to persuade ourselves that our leaders betray the trust imposed in them and distort the aspirations of those who elect them. Actually, they represent us all too exactly.”

I pray to god that let all religious nutcases kill each other so that rest of the sane world can leave in peace.
Kagodu Thimmappa, a long-time bootlicker of Sarekoppa Bangarappa, is infamous as the most corrupt chairman of the Karnataka Housing Board ever.
Thimmappa oversaw KHB at its worst — building thousands of very poor quality homes for allotees and encouragin KHB engineers to pocket crores of the taxpayers’ money — a lot of which ended up with Thimmappa himself.
The Lok Ayukta needs to target this evil man. Shame on the Congress for giving him a ticket.
After seeing politicians licking the boots of minorities for getting on the back of power horse, we are seeing a change. There is at least one politician who refuses to appease the minorities. In the final analysis, all of us need MPs who can represent us effectively, not those who are good at appeasing one pressure group or other. After a surfeit of Arjun Singhs, Lallus, Rambilas Paswan and Mulayams, this was bound to happen. It is in the interest of every citizen that he positively goes to polling booth on the date on the day of election and exercises his franchise in favour of a candidate whom he believes to be the right choice, rather than go by parties, labels and colours.
OK, Now find out why made those remarks.
Read more about:
Muslims’ act of encroaching Hindu burial grounds and taking out urs and other religious processions to lay their claim over the land.
If Muslims have run out of burial space, does it mean they can simply appropriate Hindu burial space? Should not Hindus have any religious sentiments?
Here is where Congress’ wile politics comes to play, instead of trying to reconciliate the two communities, Congress leans towards Muslims and after all it is the question of, rights of poor, low caste Hindus, who can be bought for Rs. 500 note each.
BJP is naturally hard-headed and can’t think beyond making such delicate issues controversial.
Can we have an alternative, please?

Eee manushyana modalu olage haki .. nettage kuttuge ittikolloke barda useless ..
I have seen this Kagodu since 1988. He has this thing against Brahmins. If Ananth Kumar Hegde gives hate speech, Why blame Brahmins? Can this type casting ever end? Its time to stop hate speech not only against Muslims, also against Brahmins dude. Kogodu grow up buddy.
Guys dont get uptight. There is no love lost bet’n Brahmins and Muslims. It is just ELECTION time buddy.You have to be ready for communal mud slinging to woo the innocent masses.
Be ready for more Varuns,Ananth’s,Kagodu,s till elections.
It will be normal once the elections are finished.
To say that a candidate does not require the votes of a particular group of voters – How does that amount to hate speech, unless the speech contained something more than this point? This kind of labelling shows intellectual laziness. Before branding the speech as hate speech, the lib-sec media should read some ayats of Koran, in particular Surah 8 and Surah 9. These two are essentially Jihadi Surahs. If anyone were to write or utter such thing in this vitiated atmosphere, he will be Varun-Gandhied!
If it pleases you, Lankesh called Kagodu Thimmappa as ‘KaThi’–if you reverse these letters in Kannada–you got it:) That is what he is!
