Deconstructing Gandhi: Suicidal prescriptions for Hindus - India Facts

Deconstructing Gandhi: Suicidal prescriptions for Hindus - India Facts | Conflict and Prejudice | Scoop.it

One must hand it to Gandhi. If he was anything from 1909 when he penned Hind Swaraj until his death in 1948, he was consistent in his fetishes and political delusions.

Gandhi wanted both Hindus and Muslims to subsume their Hindu and Muslim identity in the ‘Indian’ identity, both in 1922 at the time of the Moplah jihad and in 1946–that is, post the “Direct Action Day” when the Mahatma wanted Muslims and Hindus to find an “Indian” answer to Islamic jihad and Muslim secessionism rearing its head menacingly from the 1930s decade. And while Hindus always obliged, star-struck by Gandhi’s Mahatmahood, Muslims sensibly ignored him and perfected their jihadi weapon and worked relentlessly towards achieving their Islamic objective of vivisecting the Hindu nation. 

Edwin Ong's insight:

Indeed, when one mentions about Gandhi, the first impression that one has of him would definitely be inspiration. Many other feelings can also be sadness and grief.

I feel that Gandhi is really an inspirational man who stopped at nothing to fight for the Indians' freedom. His actions are really those of a freedom fighter.

Russian racism against Tatars in Crimea

In Crimea, native Tatars feel discriminated due to lack of lands. Conflicts between Tatars and their Slavic neighbours in recent years has led to increasing brawls, vandalising graveyards and much more.

Edwin Ong's insight:

One would definitely feel the anger and pain that are running through the tatars' veins. It is extremely hard to take in seeing that the tatars are being treated so unslightly such as not having enough lands and it is unavoidable for them to start a conflict.

I really feel sad if i were to put myself into their shoes and feel for them being treated so bad by the Slavics.

Edwin Ong's insight:

After watching Martin Luther King's famous speech, one would definitely feel that he was truly an inspirational man who fought for the african americans with all his might and this speech represents not just his feelings but also his fellow african americans. 

One would also feel the pain and sadness that martin luther king and the african americans were going through. If one were treated the way that they are treated, i truly believe that no one would dare to stand up unlike martin luther king.

In all, he was truly a great man who never stopped fighting for the african americans' rights!
