'He must be a little cracked'
'Do these supposedly-Hindu, ever tell the "secular" columnists, politicians and activists that they are very, very tired of a huge group of Hindus being branded as Nazis, and that it's time to do away with that politically-motivated demonisation?'

Doodh ka doodh, paani ka paani

Cure is possible only after detection
'Fact is, there are more Islamists in India than "secularists" will admit even to themselves. And, it is not "poverty" and "no opportunity" that makes them jihadis. It is pure Khilafah -- the urge to impose Islamic supremacy -- that guides them.'

My country, period

Campus capers for Christ

Stories they don't want told
'The West's ways are best observed from a point offering a comprehensive view: What they don't want told about missionaries in Iraq is precisely what's been manipulating the religio-politics of India.'

Dear Readers, VII
'Since the day Masood Azhar was set free by this government, I have repeatedly said that the PM is a curse on this country. Today, I escalate that warning: India is under relentless attack *because* this person is at the helm of affairs.'

April 14, 2003

YES, all four wars!
'India's greatest tragedy is, every battle won by the soldier turned into a war ceded by the politician ?- there is no denying that. Just as there is no refuting that India's Finest creamed the Pakis in each and every war...'

Cherchez les bureaucrats
'In the end, of course, the US forces will win. But they will do so in spite of -- and not because of -- the political class, which includes the yes men among top military commanders.'

March 31, 2003

Whaat "WMD," whaat "principle"...

Apna hi sikka khota
'If terrorists aren't instantly processed and dispatched to a suitable place, why blame the security forces for doing what the people want them to do?'

November 4, 2002

Hinduism's corpse
'We need a class of committed Hindus from all walks of life who have the guts to reject caste altogether --- and do it loudly and with fanfare --- regardless of the threats from the Hindu jihadis.

Where there's money, there are hostile witnesses
'Salman is going to play that which is handled beautifully by our politicians - the religious card. I say this with absolute certainty because he's played it once before - in the blackbuck poaching case.'

October 21, 2002

Shock to the system
'Because there is no forum, no political group, that represents us, these Hindu Talibs wreck havoc in the country, comfortable in the belief that alert Hindus have no option but to support them. That must stop.'
