Can't verify if this is true, but someone posted this.

New Delhi: Hazrat Nizamuddin dargah, which is closed for the visitors since March in view of the Covid-19 pandemic, will re-open only after September 5, members of the shrine committee said.

How peaceful and contentment Hazrat Muhammad Nizamuddin Auliya R.A.'s soul must have felt during these past five months.

This is an eye opening interview of a journalist who has written a book that tells us the stories of three individuals who had actively participated in the Gujarat riots of 2002.

Important points:

People from the lower classes rioted and killed Muslims and burnt down houses and looted shops under the incitement of upper class hindutva leaders.

Those who rioted were later rewarded with money and power by the hindutva government.

The Indian middle class is largely indifferent to hindutva, even supportive of it, due to the lack of a coherent alternative.

The RSS has done grass root work for social and educational upliftment. The RSS has won over the hearts and minds of Hindu youth because of their outreach, and they see the RSS as their benefactors.

Polarization of Indian society is now largely complete on the national level, beginning with Gujarat in 2002.

Indian intelligentsia are disconnected from the mentality of the masses and that is why they were surprised by the return of Modi in 2019.

Epilogue:

It looks like things are going to get a lot worse before they even begin to get better for Muslims in India. If Indian Muslims are able to get their act together, we might see a change for the better after three generations.

We are living, ya akhi, in spectra-wide, that is, broad band times.

This means that we are living in those times where the full spectrum, full variety, full range of ideologies are available at the same time.

This is not such a horrendous thing to live with as to scare us. This can be managed and we can deal with this incredibly large range of ideologies.

Thus we can also deal with people like Rahul Eeshwar ( what a preposterous title to carry around).

But one thing we must not do - we should not get carried away because of their apparent colours of communal harmony.

Thank you for your response, Professor Sahab.

Does this mean that we should not engage in any kind of dialogue with right wing conservatives in India? Or does it mean that the right wing in India is incapable of communal harmony?

Good questions ya akhi.

Since I have,sadly, not reached very conclusive stage in this regard it is very difficult for me to reply in a very decisive manner. But I still have a few things to add on this point.

My personal view is that we have a lot of talking to do with the liberal democrats - the Congress and the others. That is what we should take up with all earnestness.

Looks like NDA will be retaining power with BJP becoming the largest party in Bihar.

Was hoping for RJD alliance to win but they have been let by Congress.
