Secularism – A leash or shackle in Bharat’s neck? Epilogue
a hypothetical scenario. An unknown player has a nuclear bomb that it wants to
use against a specific religious society.
will be the intended target and who will respond to the attack if the nuke is
dropped on –
Varanasi (or one of the many Hindu sacred sites)
the response of say a secular USA differ from that of another secular nation
India or Jewish Israel or an Islamic Kingdom of Saudi Arabia or Communist China
in each of the above scenario?
a secular India nuke the perpetrator when a nuclear bomb is dropped on Mecca?
What happens to the entitlement of Indian Muslims, who make 15% of Indian
population, over India’s nuclear policy?
That brings us
back to the philosophical question Caesar raises to his intellectual father in
the movie “Rise of the Planet of the Apes”.
So what would be
a Dharmic solution to Caesar’s conundrum? A dharmic guru would have told Caesar
about the concept of all pervading God-consciousness and swa-dharma. Perhaps
the dharmic guru would have foretold Caesar about the animistic behavior that
his intellect wouldn’t surpass when the grand-father to be ‘perceivably’ intimidated
by the neighbor leading to the "Rise of the Planet of the Apes".
The purpose of a Dharmic Guru is to make Caesar understand the role of the leash until he is fully humanized and to free his consciousness from his animistic/beastly behavior forever. But he would not demand the dharmics to wear a leash/shackle so Caesar feels more at home.
of Independent India behaved exactly like their Abrahamic masters, by shackling
the dharmic Bharat with Secularism instead of liberating their under-developed minority brethren.
