beware some of the ‘RW’ flag-bearers.

should we be cautious of s. dhume, s. dasgupta, a. ranganathan et al.?

they are trying to reduce the debate against ‘left parties’ and abrahamism as a ‘right wing thought’; being popular among the social media netizens, their words are taken very seriously among the modi-samarthaks but is is becoming clear that their reduction of the debate by ‘characterization’ (as RW) will dilute the entire substrate of hypocrisy and bigotry of the ‘intellectuals’ which the so called RW want to build.

while one is a republican party backer (US party which supports christian crusades in India), the other is an admirer of w. doniger (CIA’s history fabricator, south asian dept. who is in short- a sanatan dharma hater). wonderfully, all are silent on the xn activities, subversion etc.! (could be for building up personal image in the West, which even subramaniam swamy does)

there are many other famous names in this group but for now i shall avoid in naming them without identifying the pattern in their ops.

can anyone produce further examples of the possible ‘jaichands’?

I cannot speak of Sadhanad Dhume or Surajit Dasgupta, but I have been following Ranga Uncle for sometime. He does not fit into the traditional Rw mould. But is there really a rw mould?? More importantly, do we need one??

Both Rupa Subramanya and Anand Rangarajan are ideologically right of center. But they are not blind rwingers. Some of their criticism of the rw is valid. If you read multiple articles of Ranga uncle on NL or of Rupa for that matter, and club them with their tweet threads… you’ll notice they stick to their chosen ideology. So If AR criticized UPA for wasteful spending on newspaper ads, he does the same for AAP and for BJP. No discrimination. Same with his thoughts on superstition, GMO, scientific research in India. I may not agree with him on all issues. But that does not mean I need to be wary. As long as people are open about who or what they support and are not hypocritical.

In fact, rather than characterizing and slotting these out-spoken thinkers, we should just follow them with open mind. When we disagree… counter them. If not, let them be.

Also, some and many of the rw writers criticize BJP, PM and rw. We may not like that. But that does not make them wrong. Taking genuine criticism int he right spirit is important. Something which the left never does. So as right wingers, let us not lose our open-mindedness which is our strength.

I’d be more worried if I caught them being hypocritical or lying than about their rw or lw credentials.

As long as people are open about who or what they support and are not hypocritical.

Care to explain what this means ?

If I am a Modi supporter , and I never criticize him , is that being hypocritical or is it just being open about my support of Modi ?

Can you name even a single Modi supporter who has criticized his handling of rabid Hindutva groups ?

It is the easiest thing to criticize anyone about , as you say , superstition, GMO, and scientific research because Modi’s thoughts on these topics are not really controversial.

The entire thrust of people who care for this country ( irrespective of their ideologies ) is the increasing space occupied by the loony fringe of the right , and it is the silence and inaction of the government at the Centre , specifically Modi , which is alarming all good people.

Dismissing every incident as fabricated , conspiratorial is being hypocritical and cowardly.

Is there a single right-wing intellectual who has criticized this and called stridently for action ?

Even Anupam Kher finally found the courage to raise his voice against Sadhvi Prachi and Yogi Adityanath just a week back , and it was immediately countered with more venom from Adityanath. As usual , everyone else in the party and the government is silent.
