Rushdie ban reveals the shameful truth about Kolkata | Firstpost
mad hatter mamta
It is not Kolkata alone.
It is all India.
Cultural Terrorism is what they are calling it.
Its a religious terrorism masked as cultural terrorism.
And it is a damned shame for secular India!
I add also the casteism to browbeat intellectual discussion.
I hope to go for Morning Walk in my favorite nearby lake-park again which is now being like taken hostage by the hoards of Biharis and Bhaiyas, no place to walk let alone run . The only way to get rid of this mess is development in Bihar and Uttar Pradesh which is a good thing .
Hate mongering Rich Delhi Boy. Stop your racism against people from the state of Bihar it is as much their country as it is yours
If we write a Tom Sharpe novel on India and Socialism you will be writing about West Bengal and its denizens.Macabre tragedy in comedy
Not Kolkata alone. It shows the crass muslim appeasement and pompously called secularism.
There were some members here from among the Bhodrolok musilms who stressed that the latter group was moderate and no non-sense.
Looking at the comments I say with pity that still middle class of India has not learned from anything.
This problem is a direct result of communism/leftism in west Bengal. Nothing else. Beware other states are learning while wb has not. It will soon enter the sick states and least developed states list unless it changes its attitudes
The organisers of the event now say that Rushed .. Rush die err .. Rushdie was lying.
But a muslim cleric claiming that he preached Mamta into banning the author, has blown the lid off.
Now there will be some chi chi thu thu on the internet, mass media and then back to usual business.
Poor Rushdie is rushed out of everywhere.
Rapid Hardcore Industrialization will pull Kolkata out of this Viscous Sh!t. Kolkatta is still the only Industrialized City apart from Bombay, Pune and Chennai. Respect to that.
If the Rest of the Country is still interested in those Dumb----- -isms, Enjoy more 60 Years of Poverty more and this time atleast 2 Billion Poors!
These kinds of statements make me sometimes to think caste system was justified
Correction it was industrialized before but now only a shit place. Now mumbai,Chennai, Bangalore,Hyderabad, ahmedabad, Surat, pune etc are much more industrialized.... Kolkata will retreat to even more shit if it does not remove Commie who have made sure rich remain rich and poor poor. Nandy is an example
Three most secular states of India are UP, Bihar, Bengal and all other congress ruled states where the majority community and freedom of speech has no meaning. Holy Quraan is recited and read by all muslims but they found it objectionable when recited in a movie. If Quraan is objectionable than muslims who opposed this movie must give up islam and acquire a new religion where reciting of holy books is not objectionable in movies.
The objections by so called muslims was about certain verses from Holy Quraan which has been used by Mullahs to justify bloodbath in the name of Islam and to justify Jihaad and terror.
A lot of WB's problems can be solved by electing a pro-industry person as their leader. But the trouble is the communist economic ideas appears to have spread to all the parties in their state. Mamta for example, is more leftist economically than even the commies, so even changing the government is unlikely to bring any change in policies, may be they could give INC a chance.
IMO this movie shud be made tax free to promote brotherhood and explain Islam in its true meaning.
More Funny Thing is Kamal Hassan wants to leave for a More Secular Country!
What Secular? Saudi Arabia?
@Apollyon - Please do not provoke by stereotyping.
@Mad Indian - You are at the threshold, and frankly, everyone is tired of you. It's not a question of if, it's a question of when.
