The speaker is an Indian journalist. The presentation is in Hindi.

He says the current ruling dispensation has nothing to show for in terms of the history of the freedom struggle of India so they have created their own narrative of a history based on hate (for Muslims.)

The party that came to power on the plank of hindutva did so by cornering 37% of the votes, which means more than 60% of the voters did not vote for hindutva.

The speaker laments the fact that a place of worship is being erected at a site where an illegal demolition occurred.

He says laws were broken and justice was subverted. He says there can be no spirituality associated with such criminal behaviour.

The speaker is echoing the voice of moderate Hindus.

These voices need to be amplified. People tend to unite against oppression and tyranny, because balkanization is the eventual outcome of hate and intolerance.

There are very few in the media. Even those that are; they are working for youtube based news channels than those that have ability to reach millions of households through their square box. Did you hear rajdeeep sardesai that other day with owaisi. All these supposedly secular/liberal journalists are also jumping in bed with fascists. Those that covered demolition of babri masjid, bombay riots that followed and gujarat riots are now preaching unity from ayodhya.

The following is taken from an interview with Pankaj Mishra, an Indian intellectual based in the West.

Quote:
With the laying of the foundation stone of the Ram Mandir, Indian polity has taken a step away from its secular spirit. Do you think this moment was a historical inevitability, given the nation’s trajectory in the first 50 years of independence? 

When Congress leaders boast today of belonging to the party that first unlocked the gates to Ram Lalla, the political trajectory of the Indian nation state seems blindingly clear. M.A. Jinnah and other Muslim leaders were obviously right to fear that the secular rhetoric of Congress leaders concealed upper-caste Hindu dominance; they were right to suspect that Muslims would be second-class citizens in a Hindu-ruled India and that the ardent personal guarantees of Gandhi and Jawaharlal Nehru to pluralism would not be enough to insure against this outcome. The raj tilak of Narendra Modi at the Ram Mandir has with devastating finality vindicated the two-nation theory.
