From the ramparts of ‘Sly Granny’, Bangalore South MP Tejasvi Surya blithely makes a major announcement: India is “already” a ‘Hindu rashtra’

Stand-up comedian Kunal Kamra‘s pre-CoronaVirus 40-minute powwow with Bangalore South MP Tejasvi Surya has already clocked 1.2 million “views” on YouTube (although the definition of a view in the digital age is a mere 3 seconds or thereabouts.)

The lightweight interview conducted at Sly Granny, a “hipster joint” in Indiranagar in Bangalore, is the usual Kamra cocktail of jump cuts and comebacks which expose Surya’s sanghi slyness, which doesn’t take much to expose anyway.

That said, the interview, recorded in October 2019, is remarkable for Surya’s calm admission that India is “already” is a Hindu rashtra.

Hopefully, it means something to the 1.2 million who “viewed” the interview.

Mercifully, the young BJP lawyer, who took oath under the Constitution, keeps his escape car ready by making the distinction between a Hindu nation and Hindu state.
