Arvind Kejriwal seems to have developed a habit of insulting Hindus. We all remember him tweeting a picture on Lord Hanuman that enraged Hindus, & rightly so. This time he’s gone a step ahead by not accepting the Shrimad Bhagavad Gita which was presented to him as a token.
The convenor of the ‘Chanda Bandh Satyagraha’ Dr. Munish Raizada along with two other people went to meet Arvind Kejriwal at his residence. The three were allowed to meet him, while the rest of the members of the movement weren’t allowed inside. Even though the three were allowed inside, Kejriwal made them wait for a long time before meeting them.
Dr.Raizada & fellow members have been in Punjab for a considerable time opposing Arvind Kejriwal’s move to remove the list of donors from his party’s website & for fielding candidates in Punjab who have serious criminal allegations against them. He wished to give Kejriwal the Shrimad Bhagavad Gita to remind him of the wisdom imparted in the holy book, & to make him realize that his actions aren’t in accordance with the teachings of Hinduism. But in a most disdainful act, Kejriwal didn’t even accept the Shrimad Bhagavad Gita!
It’s amazing how politicians like him brazenly disrespect Hinduism, but go out of the way to appease people of minority communities. Even before the Lok Sabha elections, Arvind Kejriwal had released a ‘Roadmap for Indian Muslims’. He is seen many times wearing a topi, or visiting a Dargah, & to say he was the man who claimed he’ll bring about a ‘political revolution’ in India. In fact, his political career till now has been one that of utmost hypocrisy & lies.
Here, we also need to ask Hindus who support him – Does this action of his trouble you even a little? Or is forgiving him for insulting your holy scripture another way of strutting your ‘secularism’? But I believe Hindus still won’t care. The irony is that these very Hindus will back Kejriwal to the hilt even if he were to openly appease Muslims, but they don’t mind it if their own religion is insulted.
As usual, our media is silent. The media still doesn’t let us forget that Narendra Modi had once ‘rejected’ the topi. But this incident is immaterial to them because the media establishment is primarily anti-Modi, & because of this they are willing to ignore any & everything done by opposition parties.
Social media is the new platform of unbiased dissent, & Twitter didn’t spare Kejriwal. Here are some tweets thrashing Kejriwal for his unpardonable action –
