    New Delhi: At least 90 percent of Indians are "idiots" who can easily be misled by mischievous elements in the name of religion, Press Council of India (PCI) chairperson Justice Markandey Katju claimed today.

    "I say ninety percent of Indians are idiots. You people don't have brains in your heads....It is so easy to take you for a ride," he said at a seminar in the capital.

    He said that a communal riot could be incited in Delhi for as meagre an amount as Rs. 2000. He said that all somebody has to do is make a mischievous gesture of disrespect to a place of worship and people start fighting each other.

    "You mad people will start fighting amongst yourself not realising that some agent provocateur is behind this," he said.

    Justice Katju said that before 1857 there was no communalism in the country but the situation is different now. "Today 80 percent Hindus are communal and 80 percent Muslims are communal. This is the harsh truth, bitter truth that I am telling you. How is it that in 150 years you have gone backwards instead of moving forward because the English kept injecting poison," Justice Katju said.

    "The policy that emanated from London after the mutiny in 1857 that there is only one way to control this country that is to make Hindus and Muslims fight each other," he said.

    He said that then there was a propaganda that Hindi was the language of Hindus and Urdu of Muslims. "Our ancestors also studied Urdu, but it is so easy to fool you. You are idiots, so how difficult is it to make an idiot out of you," he said.

    Mr Katju said that he was saying these harsh things to make Indians, whom he loved to understand the whole game and not remain fools.

    He's absolutely right. We have so many "educated" members on this very forum who espouse the hardline BJP line of thinking (as well as many Indian Muslims taking the opposite extremist view, but unrepresented on this site) that its easy to predict that India will forever be mired in its own massive internal problems to make any significant contribution on the world stage.

    What you have is a case of highly emotional people who end up getting swayed by emotions, by and large a subcontinental problem.

    This is the reason I most admire the East Asians in Asia, very pragmatic.

    This has been the political strategy of congress for the last 6 decades and there is nothing new. The only new thing added is "HINDU TERROR OR TERRORISTS"...

    This is what the original natives get after these many years of slavery .........

    2000 is way too much I think.

    A desecrated idol - Rs. 100

    A shredded book - Rs. 50

    Watch idiots kill each other - Priceless.

    His India-Pak reunification, division by zero and H2O rants imply that he lies in the 90%.

    Shocking that people like him are in positions of power

    I would suggest intellectual arrogance from Justice Katju btw how does he arrive at that number of 90 %.

    What really kills India is not politicians but people who vote them in for what biryani or some loose perks its Indians who seems to suffer from collective loss of memory.

    I mean how can someone give his vote to a guy like lalu pretty incomprehensible, just take Gujrat elections instead of bashing modi on religious connotations its pitiful that Congress did not come with a coherent political & economic plan to vote them.
