On the one hand, you have a young boy of 15 being stabbed and killed within sniffing distance of “smart city” New Delhi, after being taunted about being a “beef-eater”.
On the other hand, you have the sick sight of not one, repeat not one, member of Narendra Modi‘s intellectually-bankrupt cabinet turning up for the President’s iftar.
To Hindus destroying their great religion with their hatred and blood lust—as a benign government at the Centre looks away, probably even eggs them on with its silence—a powerful message of goodwill from Vishwesha Teertha Swami of the Pejawar Mutt.
The Swami is perhaps not the perfect icon of Hindu-Muslim brotherhood.
He is a major functionary of the Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) and was a key mover and shaker behind the Babri Masjid-Ramjanmabhoomi movement, which is what has brought India to this sad, disgraceful pass.
Still, in these hate-filled climes, when the vampires prowl openly for the blood of young and old, and nobody it seems can see them, the Pejawar swami deserves a small salute.
