    Hitler’s Strange Afterlife in India - The Daily Beast

    An article on the disturbing legacy of Bal Thackeray and his fascist Shiv Sena acolytes.

    Indian rhetoric needs to move out of the shadow of chickenhawk demagogues such as Thackeray. I wonder if, when the Israelis sell weapons to DRDO, they notice these strains of thought?

    If not for Hitler, colonialism would never ave ended. Hail Hitler:hail:

    And dirt bags need to be treated like dirt bags. People who love Pakistan more than India should be kicked in the ass and sent back there. There is no denying that

    re: Hitler’s Strange Afterlife in India

    The entire purpose of using the "Hitler is very famous in India" plank was to attack the Shiv Sena/BJP/chaddi cliques in the Western press. The author DD was the one who famously called for American military intervention "to protect minorities" during the Gujarat riots.

    The guy has an evangelical agenda and conveniently attacks the "Hindu Right" from a safe sanctuary in the west for the benefit of western audiences.

    P.S O.P is a Chinese who has "khujli" w.r.t high-tech Israeli Military hardware support/export to India

    Please, say that to the Israelis selling you weapons. In fact, if I was the Chinese ambassador to Israel, I would be pushing to reprint this article in every major Israeli newspaper until all the Jewish people know of these disgusting attitudes.

    That's not what Thackeray is arguing for. Thackeray is saying that all Indian Muslims, regardless of what they believe politically, ought to be 'cleansed'. Is that what you support?

    You're essentially making a giant ad hominem here.

    I want to see @Rage come in here and attempt to reconcile his embrace of Indian nationalism with his professed Western values. Or is he a hypocrite just like the rest?

    :rofl: those are private wedding pictures, not the public words of a political figure. Bal Thackeray's words calling for the mass murder of Muslims hold much more weight than some random Chinese-looking man dressed in an SS uniform, no?

    I'm sure the Israelis will be intelligent enough to figure out the difference between random people wearing clothes and an entire political party whose stated beliefs match with the individual responsible for wiping out half of the Jewish people.

    If this 'survey' was taken in a British classroom 'Churchill' would have gotten most votes(or maybe Cheryl Cole) who killed as many if not more people than Hitler.
    It's funny when westerners expect us to be sympathetic to their history while on the other hand showing complete disregard for the crimes they themselves committed.

    1992-93 was not slaughter but a riot. Native american genocide was a massacre. Thanksgiving, wow.

    The Communist manifesto is also all the rage in those circles.

    :rolleyes:

    Wrt Gandhi: When young Indians see people die in bomb blasts perpetrated by Pakistan for the creation of which Gandhi actively campaigned, his mega blunder of selecting Nehru to be the Prime Minister of India, his borderline cowardly approach of non violence they are bound to form a bias against him. No one should be above criticism and it is a good thing.

    Secondly, Hitler did nothing bad to India and hence we don't have any baggage when studying his ideology objectively.

    Damage caused by the Nazis is pretty much insignificant compared to that caused by the British Empire. And frankly, I would like Indians to be outraged by the crimes committed against them rather than shed tears for people who don't give a flying ---- about us.

    I personally don't like Hitler though, but this is not because it is taboo to even study Nazism objectively.

    re: Hitler’s Strange Afterlife in India

    :lol: now you're falling into the trap of tu quoque. Focus on the topic at hand here: how can India get of its fascination with Hitler and fascism--and if it can't, what steps should the world take to deal with India?

    Thackeray was hundred time better than Chinese bureaucrats who have self mandate to persecute Tibetans and million times better than Champion of genocide Mao.

    Your rant on Israel not selling weapons to DRDO looks like,; Billi Ko chuhey ke sapne, Cat dreaming about rats.

    I don't really think them jews need the lousy authoritarian fascist Communist Chinese(who don't know and have no freedom) telling them anything, also the Israelis will probably wipe their hands with a dab of alcohol after shaking hands with the Chinese

    What is really ironic is how the Communist Chinese think anyone would give a rats arse about what they think or say....fvckers have no freedom in their own country but act all tough with outsiders instead of ther own corrupt old leaders that never have had a popular mandate to rule.

    Hipocritical Lowlifes....

    Shut up . Don't quote me if you want to have straw man discussion and put words in my mouth. What I meant is If not for world war 2 British would not have been weak to give independence to India. India would still be a colony of Britain. So would have the rest of the African and Asian colonies.

    As for your rant about Israeli weapons, I care more about my people than people not related to me. For me British were any day much more criminals than Nazis. It was not nazis who ruled us.

    I believe if the Axis powers had prevailed, India would have been in Imperial Japan's sphere of influence, if not under its occupation, perhaps with a puppet government.

    I'd like to see @civfanatic comment on that.

    please do some research before posting one-sided information .....

    take a look at the following phenomena which also occurred in schools but elsewhere:-

    [Singapore schools] Idolising Hitler?! [Archive] - SPUG Forums
    77 posts - 27 authors - 27 Jun 2005
    GERMAN and Israeli diplomats say they are shocked that a group of Singapore high school students have chosen Adolf Hitler for the their team ...
    German-Israeli embassies condemn students' idolising of Hitler



    German-Israeli embassies condemn students' idolising of Hitler
    Jul 1, 2005 – THE German and Israeli embassies in Singapore have expressed shock over a group of local high school students choosing Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler for the ... (misdirected) choice of Adolf Hitler as a 'great leader'," they said.

    the country concerned also has good relations with israel and indeed defence cooperation ..... so are you also suggesting israel should reconsider selling defence products there ? great research !

    jewish communities have taken refuge in various places in india for literally centuries - those who want to return to israel are not in any way obstructed and even today many jewish communities seek to have places of residence and worship in india - and that is a new modern-day phenomenon

    just as india also allowed ARAB children from Iraq and their teachers to take refuge in inda just before the desert-shield war in iraq

    our relationship with both arab and israeli peoples and govts is SOLID and a keyboard -commando from CCP is not gonna shake that !
