Two Sides of the Same Coin

"Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
the blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
the ceremony of innocence is drowned.
the best lack all conviction, while the worst
are full of passionate intensity".
- WB Yeats, The Second Coming.

When the UPA government came to power, the stock markets went into a tailspin and foreign investors headed for the hills because of the communist support the new alliance needed to hold power. While i was and still am nervous about the progress of the next generation economic reforms, i knew that India had come to far down the road of liberalization to accept any major rollbacks forced upon it by the communists thus returning to the bad old days of the license Raj.

With the appointment of free marketwallahs like Montek Singh Ahluwalia and P. Chidambaram to important posts within Manmohan Singh government we were assured that the reforms would continue.
Since then despite this promise, weve seen the communist make one insane demand after the other on the government. They have shouted so much at the top of their voices for so long, that they have lost all power of reasoning. The fact is that the communists have absolutely no mandate whatsoever to force their agenda on the rest of the nation, especially considering that they only hold power in 2 states out of 27. Even there, Kerala is little more than a remittance economy, while West Bengal has been in terminal decline throughout the uninterrupted 27-year rule of the Communists.

Just how does a non-performing government with a defunct ideology discredited worldwide stay in power for so long i hear you ask? Well its quite simple really, all you've gotta do is allow millions of illegal Muslim Bangladeshi immigrants to migrate to your state and then get them on the voter registry lists, therefore guaranteeing yourself a loyal vote bank you can always rely on to stay in power. While this strategy works well in the short run, it is bound to be disastrous in the long run not only for the communists but also for national security. As one should well know, Marx and mohammed don’t make for good bed fellows. One has to only look across the border in Bangladesh to see the pathetic status of the communist movement let alone in other Islamic countries like Pakistan, Iran, and Saudi Arabia where im pretty sure they wouldn't even exist.

For India, the communist lust for power at all costs will be an even bigger nightmare. Since the time of partition when the muslim league lobbied for a complete and not moth eaten Pakistan, there have been calls for a greater Bangladesh (absurd as it is). For most of that period since this was little more than a dream, but now as each day goes past, little by little it looks like becoming more of a reality. Many districts close to the border already have once again become a muslim majority with scores of madrases churning out countless anti-India muslim extremists. A massive swathe of territory stretching from eastern Bihar to lower Assam lying along the extremely strategic chickens neck passage that connects India proper to its northeastern states is now vulnerable. One can only hope something is done to address the situation, before a second partition of India is upon us, for that will surely necessitate the complete annihilation of the muslims in India for once and for all.
