Time magazine calls NAMO 'divider-in-chief'

Recommended Posts

I have huge respect for Tavleen as an author. Her book Durbar is one my favorite books on Indian politics.
Salman Taseer was one of the true liberals of Pakistan, was shot dead by a fundamentalist named Mumtaz Qadri because he was shielding a blasphemy accused. 

In the book Durbar she writes just 2-3 sentences about her affair with Salman Taseer.

She was impregnated when she was unmarried and Salman Taseer was married and the length of their affair was one week. :sad_smile:

It must have been really difficult for Aatish growing up in India-Pak society.

I sort of agree that almost everyone in India is now either pro-Modi or anti-Modi.

I am not unhappy about divisions.  I think multiple view points is good thing. Fundamentalism is not. Quite frankly, biased media houses, false narratives, backlog of intelligentsia and congress rule is pushing people like me more and more towards unconditional support. I try to keep myself in check. But to me the battle lines are drawn whether I choose to fight or not. I know which side I will choose.

True liberal? Then why was Aatish raised as Muslim ? He must had dictated it. Also women like Tavleen are reason why inter religious relationships are not accepted by orthodox society. She gave caste and religion to his son of his father who never saw him.

Not sure if Aatish was raised as a muslim.

Just the surname is of his father which I too find strange and I don't think it was imposed by Salman Taseer. (<-- I may be wrong on this)

Aatish is gay and married to a christian Ryan Davies. 

Also Salman Taseer risked his life and finally took a bullet for shielding a christian woman in a rabid islamic country. That in my view makes him a great human being.

Aatish may be liberal in his personal life, but has expressed India-phobic views which pretty much reflect the mainstream Pakistani view.

Where have you heard it before? Sitting in USA, has the baboony logic of telling down the locals how to think? Knowing our civilization is medieval theocracy for this idiot. Glad he didn't choose to live in India and identifies himself of his Pakistani roots.
